In R&D we are responsible for developing new products and processes for food cultures, animal-, human- and plant health. Chr. Hansen is a company based on science and aims to deliver cutting edge products. The Microbial Screening - Leads department within the Discovery organization is responsible for screening and characterizing new leads for the product pipeline.

To enable defining strains for new or next generation products we continuously work on understanding the mechanisms by which the bacteria interact with their environment and generate the desirable traits that fermented foods possess. We apply these learnings in our screening setup to allow quick definition of strains with the right characteristics and thereby lay the foundation for the development of the fermented foods of the future.

Your future tasks will include:
Together with your skilled colleagues you will become part of a team with a broad spectrum of competences. Your initial focus will be in the area of texture in fermented foods where you will become an integral part of the cross-functional team investigating texturing properties of lactic acid bacteria. Additionally, you will gradually be introduced and assigned to screening projects across the various business areas of Chr. Hansen.

As a screening scientist you will be engaged directly in labwork in close collaboration with the technical staff depending on the task at hand. Your main responsibility will be to design and execute specific screening activities but also to develop screening assays and build on the scientific foundations of the developmental work we are involved in, thereby also supporting development of internal business projects. Additionally, you will play an important part in the continuous development of methodologies and analysis tools that are relevant for the department.

Work will include:

  • Expansion of texture competences within a screening context
  • High-throughput screening activities
  • Planning, initiating and conducting experiments
  • Dataprocessing , technical and scientific reporting

Who are we looking for?
The person we are looking for to fill this position is passionate about developing the fermented food products of tomorrow and who enjoys working as part of a team. This goes both for cross-functional project teams as well as ensuring that the wide range of competences in microbial screening all come into play. For this position a solid background within applied microbiology is required and experience with lactic acid bacteria and fermented foods considered an advantage.

A PhD in the field of Microbiology or equivalent is mandatory.

In addition, the ideal applicant will be/ have:

  • Screening experience using liquid handling equipment, e.g. Hamilton Microlab Star
  • Experience with texture in fermented foods
  • Team oriented, innovative and recognizes failures as learning opportunities
  • Experience with relative databases and data-processing by R
  • Wetlab experience in multidisciplinary environments

What do we offer you?
