Senior Downstream Ingeniør

Senior Downstream Ingeniør med erfaring inden for oprensning af proteiner både industrielt og i pilotskala søges til industriel biotekvirksomhed med patenteret, unik fermenteringsteknologi til proteinfremstilling.

Virksomhed

Unibio er en biotekvirksomhed, som ejer og udvikler en patenteret fermenteringsteknologi til fremstilling af protein, hvor metan anvendes som fødekilde til metanotrofe bakterier. Potentialet for teknologien er enestående, og teknologien kan ændre værdikæden for proteinproduktion samt imødekomme en accelererende efterspørgsel efter proteinprodukter afledt af en voksende efterspørgsel efter kødbaserede produkter.

Grundlæggende muliggør teknologien en afkobling af proteinproduktion fra landbrug og fiskeri, hvormed den miljø- og klimamæssige effekt af kødproduktion kan reduceres væsentligt.

Unibio har i dag et laboratorium og et pilotanlæg på DTU, et demonstrations- og produktionsanlæg i Kalundborg og et industriel anlæg i samarbejde med en kunde. Sideløbende fokuseres der på forskning og videreudvikling gennem bl.a. samarbejde med SDU og DTU samt potentielle kunder.

Kandidaten

Du har flere års erfaring med oprensningsmetoder, gerne fra pilot- og industriel skala inden for biotekindustrien. Du har formentlig en uddannelsesmæssig baggrund som cand. scient, cand polyt, kemiingeniør eller lignende.
