Biophysical Research Scientist for Manufacturing Development (Denmark, Kalundborg)

Novo Nordisk A/S

Kalundborg, Denmark


Do you have the knowledge to contribute to the development and documentation of biophysical analytical methods for current and future diabetes products? And do you like to pass your knowledge on to people around you and collaborate with a variety of experienced people within analytical science? If so, we have just the job for you. You will be part of Diabetes API Manufacturing Development (MDev) at our facilities in Kalundborg. Engaged colleagues are ready to welcome you to a team responsible for biophysical characterization, hands-on problem solving and developing new analytical methods to be used directly in production (in-line measurements) or by the laboratories supporting the production.

The department
The department is responsible for providing analytical support to MDev’s optimisation projects, as well as supporting process and analytical development for new products. The department plays a vital role in support to the production and QC-laboratory in Diabetes API at site Kalundborg. We are roughly 60 engaged employees organized in four teams. The department is responsible for developing analytical methods, validation, documentation, characterisation and delivering analytical results for new drug substances. As part of our team, you will work closely with dedicated colleagues with expertise within several analytical techniques.

The position
Your daily tasks will vary from approval of analytical methods, development of new analytical methods, implementation of new technology, to troubleshooting and support to our production facilities. Together with our skilled technicians you will be responsible for planning and coordinating experiments in the laboratory. It is critical that you can promote collaboration with other parts of the organisation, as the position requires close interaction with a variety of stakeholders. Across your tasks you are expected to share your knowledge and help your colleagues and customers build a wider understanding of our analytical methods and techniques.
Finally, together with your colleagues you will contribute to the on-going optimization, automation and digitalisation of processes and systems. We optimise the way we work continuously by applying a LEAN mind-set, and strive for simplicity, so it is important that you can contribute to troubleshooting and that you are able to “keep it simple”.

You have a master’s degree, preferably combined with a PhD within life sciences (chemical engineering, pharmaceutical science, chemistry, organic chemistry or an equivalent discipline) combined with in-depth knowledge of protein chemistry and understanding of pharmaceutical drug substance process development. You have a natural flair for thinking in new solutions and automation and it is an advantage if you also have programming and/or mathematic modelling skills. Central to the position is that you can document practical experience with biophysical characterisation of peptides and/or proteins. We expect that you hold some of the below listed qualifications:

  • Experience with Process Analytical Technology (PAT) and in-line measurement (ILM) technology in a pharmaceutical setting.
  • Experience with spectroscopy (e.g. Near Infrared Spectroscopy (NIR)) for in-line, on-line or at-line application in pharmaceutical production.
  • Experience with chemometrics/machine learning on e.g. spectroscopic data
  • Experience with scattering techniques, e.g. dynamic light scattering (DLS)
  • Experience with fluorescence spectroscopy e.g. for investigation of protein fibrillation.
  • Experience with higher order structure characterisation using Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy (FTIR)
  • Experience with qualification of laboratory equipment and/or development and validation of analytical methods according to GMP

On a personal level, you have a positive and flexible mind-set, and thrive in a dynamic and ever-changing environment. You enjoy collaborating and communicating with many different people daily, as your stakeholders are located in many different departments with a variety of plans and deadlines. You are a team player and contribute to reaching team goals.
It would be an advantage if you have knowledge of what it is like to work in a GMP regulated environment and if you are familiar with validation of analytical methods.
