Computational Scientist with Biotech background, Bagsværd


Novozymes has embarked on a journey where we further strengthen our ability to innovate fast, based on more and more advanced use of our research data. Novozymes has a strong foundation on traceability of key research data, and management of our massive amounts of genomics data. We wish to leverage this base while we increase the productivity of the global science community by providing seamless and intuitive access to experimental data, and state of the art data science and visualization tools.

  • Taking part in defining the data governance necessary to safeguard data while keeping agility high.
  • Being part of a global communfity across Novozymes research, where data science and analytics can flourish and further drive our use of research data.


If you enjoy challenges and have an entrepreneurial mindset, this job will give a unique opportunity of impacting and improving how researchers in Novozymes use data science to support their research.


Please expect some travel as part of your job.


In this position, you need to:

  • Have a Master’s Degree or higher in computational biochemistry, biochemistry, bioinformatics, statistics, mathematics or relevant disciplines and fluent in spoken and written English.

  • Have a knowledge of data governance better practices.
  • Have experience with scientific databases and data modelling in relational/SQL and/or NoSQL database systems is an advantage.
  • Domain knowledge in microbiology, molecular biology, biochemistry, biophysics, lab processes and/or bioinformatics at a level where you can easily engage with scientists and lab assistants, is an advantage.
  • Have a tenacious yet adaptable mindset that helps you drive for results. You have a collaborative and influential approach, a strong customer focus and excellent networking skills.
