Nutrition Scientist – Skejby

Would you like to be part of driving and setting the direction for the health agenda in Arla Foods?

Spend a year in this maternity cover in a highly skilled team of scientists based in our brand-new innovation centre. And gain a network across the organisation as you work cross-functionally and with different science teams.

“You will join Global Nutrition where we drive the health strategy of Arla Foods in terms of research and development. We are 10 colleagues, most with PhDs, who are passionate about how we help the consumers to live a healthier life and ambitious about our joint efforts. We love a good discussion and use each other’s strengths to perform better as a team,” says Team Lead Anne Louise Mørkbak.

About the job
In this maternity cover, starting March 1st, you will get to play an important role in ensuring our Arla products are as healthy and innovative as possible. Thus, you will be the primary point of contact in Global Nutrition for our markets in Chine, Germany and Holland . You will also be part of driving the R&T agenda to support the strategic direction in Arla supporting our organic and flexitarian agenda.

This entails creating a framework for how to potentially solve nutritional and taste challenges, e.g. ensure beneficial nutrients, reduce sugar, salt and fat and develop affordable or premium nutritional solutions.

Specifically, you will be the one to translate nutrition and health science into business, delivering the solutions by integrating your knowledge into the business and projects. You do so by:
Integrating all your nutrition knowledge into NPD
Providing a strong science-based feed into our corporate communication agenda
Drive and ensure a strategic fit in our open innovation projects within the field of nutrition
Enabling two-way knowledge transfer with stakeholders in Arla Foods, e.g. NPD, Marketing and Communication

Who are you?
A holistic thinker with a commercial mind-set, you are a champion at translating your scientific knowledge into business. And being outgoing, you enjoy stakeholder management, collaboration and explaining your findings to colleagues outside your own function.

You will take part in setting the direction for your area, so it is important that you speak your mind, are innovative as well as performance-driven and create structure around you. We imagine that you:
Have an MSc and PhD in nutrition and food science and perhaps research experience within nutrition science – but if you have recently graduated, you are also welcome to apply
Maybe have experience from the food industry
Are fluent in English 

What do we offer?
We are committed to professional development and promoting from within. Our positive and collaborative culture will bring out the best in you. And you will join a market leader who produces nutritious household-favourite brands in a way that benefits our consumers and our farmer.

In this maternity cover, you will get to know the industry from within, and we are ready to give you your own areas of responsibility and the flexibility you need to solve your tasks. Furthermore, you will be part of a professional environment where you will learn, be part of interesting discussions and get all the feedback you need.

Application and contact
If you want to drive innovation and help shape the industry, then seize this exciting opportunity. Please apply no later than 20th of January 2019.
