This vacancy is provided by Copenhagen Capacity.
The Novo Nordisk Foundation Center for Biosustainability at the Technical University of Denmark are doing exactly this by developing new technologies for engineering microbes, turning them into cell factories, which are designed for efficient production of a specific compound in a commercially competitive way. Today, many pharmaceuticals and chemicals are produced from oil or rare plant material. By using genome-scale modelling, advanced robotics and bioengineering, the Center’s researchers design and construct cell factories capable of converting low-value carbon sources to high-value chemical compounds and proteins in a more sustainable, cost-effective manner than today. In short: by using cell factories, we can go from an oil-based chemical industry to a highly sustainable bio-based industry.
If you have software engineering skills, and you are looking for a job that is different from most software jobs, you have it right here. At DTU Biosustain you will be part of a highly inspiring R&D environment where you can learn a lot and contribute to the development of very advanced software solutions aimed at solving some of the world’s greatest challenges – new environment friendly products, better and less energy consuming manufacturing processes, new medical treatments, climate friendly farming, etc. Please note that the position is limited for a 1 year period.
The Novo Nordisk Foundation Center for Biosustainability (DTU Biosustain)
Recent progress in our ability to read and write genomic code, combined with advances in automation, analytics and data science, has fundamentally changed the scope and ambition of harnessing the potential of biological systems. Big data approaches and analysis of biological systems are key research instruments at the Center. DTU Biosustain utilizes these advances for microbial cell factory design to foster sustainable lifestyles in relation to three application areas: Sustainable Chemicals, Natural Products, and Microbial Foods.

Develop software as the foundation for new scientific achievements
When aiming for the stars and world class innovation, like we do, we need to utilize the enormous potential within software. That is why we need you to help us make scientific software a cornerstone in the process of new discoveries and product development.
You will work with both optimisation of existing tools and contribute to the further development of our ground-breaking new informatics platform named Lifelike. Lifelike is a knowledge management and data analytics platform that stores knowledge in a human and machine-readable format that allows researchers and computers to work together in understanding and solving complex problems. We have utilized the newest knowledge within Artificial Intelligence, machine learning, natural language processing and knowledge graphs. More specifically you will:
Our current technologies and tools
Degree in software development and motivation for a steep learning curve
We are looking for a profile with motivation for learning and development not only within own area of expertise but also within the bio domain. As your solutions are enablers for a huge R&D community of Scientists you will need to understand the basics of their world and objectives. This calls for your curiosity and your additional drive for investigating new topics proactively. Additionally, you must bring overview and interest in the total solutions in order to understand how you can build the best possible components. As you will be trusted with great responsibility you must be able to plan your work to deliver within agreed deadlines. Additionally, your CV comprises:
You will join a team of Computer Scientists, Biology Professionals and Data Science Specialists based in Copenhagen and the US. You will be based at DTU in Lyngby, Copenhagen. Our culture is characterised by trust, knowledge sharing, joined decisions and helpfulness. Travelling is not part of the job but as we work closely together with colleagues in the US, you must be ready to do some calls outside normal office hours.
Communication and all issues related to the position are curated by Copenhagen Capacity.
