This position offers a possibility to work with analytical separation technology and method development in a group of dedicated scientists within the peptide and protein biopharmaceutical research area.

About the department
Novo Nordisk Global Research is committed to the development of new pharmaceutical peptides and proteins to improve quality of life and treatment for patients. The Analysis and Characterisation Technology area is part of the Protein Engineering function, involved in the discovery of human therapeutic proteins for treatment of diabetes and obesity up to first human dose. Our analysis development team is looking for a dynamic and highly innovative individual to strengthen our competence in analytical method development and peptide/protein separation technologies. It is our ambition to continuously provide the best technical solutions to the Global Research project pipeline.

The job
You will contribute with expertise in peptide and protein analysis method development to multidisciplinary project teams in early stage discovery projects. Furthermore, you will be responsible for transfer of analysis methods to development departments and for driving the development of our competencies within peptide and protein separation technologies to meet future demands.

Your daily work will involve extensive collaboration with colleagues in the team as well as across the organisation. It will also involve communication with colleagues with expertise in other scientific disciplines.

You typically hold a Ph.D. in analytical chemistry, protein chemistry, or a related discipline, possibly with additional postdoctoral training within the above mentioned disciplines. You have extensive experience with chromatographic and electrophoretic analytical separation techniques, and ideally you have an excellent track record of original research within analytical separation of proteins and peptides. Experience in chemometric tools and chromatographic modelling, as well as from biotech/pharmaceutical R&D and patent generation is considered an advantage. Finally, since all work takes place in multidisciplinary project groups, excellent collaboration and communication/presentation skills are essential.

At Novo Nordisk, your skills, dedication and ambition help us change lives for the better. In exchange, we offer you an opportunity to work within a stimulating environment and benefit from a range of possibilities for professional and personal development.
