  • As the new Partnership Professional in R&D Academic Partnerships, you will have the opportunity to take charge of the operational framework that supports our fellowship programmes in Denmark as well as globally.

About the department
  • Academic Partnerships creates value by managing external partnerships to gain access to early innovation, knowledge, and talent to support the R&D pipeline. 
  • We work broadly within the R&D organisation and have key stakeholders across the company.

The position
  • You will work in a strategic and dynamic environment, where you ensure focus and clarity on the operational side. 
  • With your organisational skills you will manage a significant portfolio of fellowships together with global academic centres; this involves more than 100 fellows at any given time.
  • You will drive and develop continued improvement and robustness of the business processes, while at the same time handle a number of practical, administrative tasks.
  • More specifically, within our fellowship programmes, you will orchestrate the recruitment and mobility processes, including candidate pre-selection. 
  • You will provide guidance to our growing number of PhD and Postdoc fellows on various HR policies, linked to employment and mobility.
  • It will be your role to keep track of budgeting and reporting commitments, and to be the first point of contact for Innovation Fund Denmark.
  • Furthermore, you are to ensure a high quality communication flow so that we are continuously perceived as a professional and reliable partner by both internal and external stakeholders.

  • It is a requirement that you hold a relevant university degree (Bachelor or Master level), for instance within Business Administration, HR, Political Science, and Communication, or similar.
  • You have already demonstrated that you possess strong stakeholder management skills, and it is seen as a plus if you have previously gained experience to foster international collaboration and to manage HR processes. 
  • We are looking for a colleague with talent for networking, excellent interpersonal skills, and preferably you already feel at home working within the interface between academia and industry.
  • From previous assignments you have gained some experience overlooking budgets, facilitating recruitment processes, and handling contracts. 
  • You approach your work in a structured, organised, and pragmatic way.
  • In addition, you must be able to work independently, be resilient, and maintain a can-do  spirit through times of pressure.
  • Finally, you communicate fluently in both spoken and written English.

Working with Us:
  • Your skills, dedication and ambition help us change lives for the better. 
  • In exchange, we offer you an opportunity to work with extraordinary and talented people as well as to benefit from a wide range of possibilities for professional and personal development.
