OXIPRO Project Coordinator NORCE has announced two job opportunities – the application deadlines are 18th February!
1. A permanent, full-time research scientist position is available in the Industrial Biotechnology group in Stavanger, reporting to Research Director Keith McCall. We seek a qualified candidate with at least 1-4 years of laboratory experience to work across several ongoing research projects within the field of microbiology, fermentation and bioprocessing.
2. A permanent, full-time research technician position is available in the Industrial Biotechnology group in Stavanger, reporting to Research Director Keith McCall. We seek a qualified candidate with at least 2-4 years of laboratory experience to work across several ongoing research projects within the field of microbiology, fermentation and bioprocessing.
In both roles, you are expected to be a key contributor to the fermentation work optimizing scale-up of fermentations from flasks through >1000 L industrial reactors, developing the knowledge and skills necessary to support this work at each step. If you have been looking for the chance to grow in the world of industrial biotechnology, these may be the opportunities you have been seeking.
About Industrial Biotechnology research group
The research group works within industrial biotechnology research and applications in food & feed, aquaculture, oil & gas, and enzymes, in projects spanning from basic R&D (TRL1-2) to industry projects (TRL7-8). The group currently consists of 15 researchers and engineers working primarily on fermentation and bioproduction, using alternative feedstocks and waste streams (including gases such as methane, CO2, and H2), process development and optimization, scale up, downstream processes, and bioactive compounds.
The group has expertise within microbiology, molecular biology, biochemistry, analytical chemistry, biotechnology, fermentation, and bioprocess engineering. The project portfolio of the group includes hosting of National Bioprocess and Fermentation Centre (NBioC Infrastructure), acting as a major partner in the SFI Centre for Industrial Biotechnology (Centers for Research-based Innovation), and supporting the European Green Deal project PyroCO2.
The research facilities are concentrated in the Stavanger region, at Ullandhaug and Risavika, and include fermentation facilities with 2 L, 150 L, and up to 1500 L fermentation reactors.
