Yeast & Fermentation Scientist (BB-6546D)

Found in: Neuvoo DK


What you’ll be doing

In this role you will support our projects and combine the power of screening and yeast selection for enhanced properties such as aroma, fermentation characteristics and product quality. You will conduct laboratory scale fermentation trials and pinpoint yeasts with interesting flavors and fermentation parameters. You will be part of deciding which yeasts we will further improve by investigating the presence of target genes and genomic differences between the candidates and select yeast candidates for breeding and state-of-the art targeted approaches to make further improvements of the yeasts. Careful strain selection and parallel small-scale laboratory fermentations will ensure that we pick the top candidates for scale up trials. All by non-GMO technologies.

We are looking for a candidate with strong background in yeast research

We expect our future colleague to be:

  • Innovative and result oriented scientist with previous experience in yeast genetics, metabolism, screening, breeding and evolution.
  • A hands-on person who is willing to contribute both on the practical and strategic parts
  • Have a PhD degree in Biotechnology, Microbiology, Biochemistry or a related field or MSc degree and minimum 3 years of industrial experience
  • A structured person with exceptional problem-solving skills and the ability to communicate in a clear and precise manner in written and oral format.
  • Hands on experience is needed in this role and confidence to work in a team but also take full ownership of individual tasks.
  • Understanding molecular structures, experience with wine or wild yeasts, basic Bioinformatics skills, and some automation skills with robotics or liquid handler are all a plus.
  • We offer you a workplace with practical industrial questions in a research center with long history and a place that covers all areas of beer brewing under one roof.
