Bioprocess Engineers Fermentation and Scale-up - Belgium  

BioBase Europe Pilot Plant (company)


Posted on : 24 November 2016

Project Description

We are an open innovation center for the development of bio-based products and processes, founded in 2008. In recent years, it has grown to one of the leading pilot plants in Europe and is recognized by the European Commission as a model pilot plant for the key enabling technology Industrial Biotechnology. Our plant supports the bio-based economy by development, optimization and scale up of bio-based processes and products, bridging the gap between laboratory research and industrial production. We participate in a number of R&D projects, some funded by European and regional agencies, some privately funded by companies we collaborate with. To expand our team, we are looking for an engineer or biotechnologist with a strong background in fermentation, downstream processing and scale up. 

Requirements are:  
  • A degree in bio-engineering (bioprocessing, chemistry, biotechnology, cell- and gene technology or related) 
  • PhD in Biotechnology is a surplus 
  • at least 3 years of relevant industrial experience 
  • relevant experience with bacterial, yeast or fungal hosts 
  • relevant experience with biocatalytic processes for the production of chemicals, food ingredients or cosmetics 
  • knowledge of scale up and pilot research is an asset  
We offer a dynamic, international and young working environment with excellent perspectives for the future. 

A suitable candidate can start immediately.
