Food Scientist - Microbiology - Nr.Vium

Can you apply your microbiology knowledge to production processes of milk-based powder ingredients? Then join the Deploy Team in Arla Foods Ingredients (AFI) R&D department. AFI is an independent company within the Arla Foods group, with the ambition to become a global leader in added-value whey.

Key partner to various innovation projects.
Based in Nr Vium, Denmark, you will work among 75 innovators, research specialists and pilot plant technicians to “discover and deliver all the wonders whey can bring to peoples life”. Your ongoing mission will be to support the development of new processes for dairy based ingredients in powder form, and scale up from pilot plant units through to production. Among your stakeholders, you will work closely with Supply Chain, Quality, and Microbiologists from the Arla Foods Innovation Centre. 

Experienced scientist with knowledge and understanding of microbiology and processing
You are an experienced microbiologist, and you hold a MSc in Food Microbiology (or similar field), giving you a strong knowledge base in molecular tools, microbial risk assessment and/or modelling in industrial processes. A PhD degree would be an advantage, but is not mandatory. Understanding of processing, engineering and operations (e.g. membrane filtration, chromatography and dairy operations) is important in the position.

You have experience in Open Innovation, and have built your own network with research institutions and universities. You bring a solid “can do” attitude to the table and have a natural interest and ability to engage in co-operation with a long range of stakeholders in and outside Arla Foods. In addition, you come across as an independent person with gravitas in a dynamic organisation where no two days are alike.
