Do you want a career that allows you to combine your toxicological skills with becoming a team-player in the development of Novozymes’ future innovative products? In that case you could be the next Zymer in Toxicology.
The department is part of Toxicology & Product Safety (approx. 30 Zymers), which provides guidance and safety assessment for all Novozymes’ pipeline projects and existing products, ensuring safety in application and in use. We supply the toxicological and safety expertise needed for customer support, registration, and legal sales of Novozymes’ products globally with emphasis on industrial enzymes and microorganisms.
