Humlebæk, DK

Job Family:  Research & Development
Country/Region:  Denmark

Analytical Chemist (maternity cover) – be the chemical specialist in our product development


Would you like to see how our medical devices interact with our end-users? And do you want to step into an international company as our expert in methodical chemistry, where you get to make a difference for people with intimate health care needs?


Then join our development projects with your chemical knowledge and develop test methods to support the development of new products within our different business areas.


”You’ll really get to immerse yourself in your area of expertise. With us, you don’t have to be afraid to release your inner nerd,” says Lene Feldskov, Director for Pre-clinical, Test & Characterization within R&D.

Join a cross-functional team with amazing team spirit
In our R&D organisation at HQ in Humlebæk, you will be part of the pre-clinical team which covers both biological and chemical competences. 

Together, we are 20 chemical, mechanical, polymer and biological scientists. We support product and technology development projects with analytical tests and general chemical support within wound, continence, bowel and ostomy care products, working closely with our specialised laboratory technicians. 


“We have an atmosphere of camaraderie. Knowledge sharing is top of mind – always. And with different areas of expertise, we complement each other really well,” explains Lene.


Become our specialist within chemistry
As our pre-clinical chemical analysis scientist, you will become one of our experts in chemistry, supporting projects with your chemical competences, developing and optimizing new analytical methods and helping us understand how our products perform. You will work on a diverse range of products within wound, ostomy and continence care.


Doing so, you will bring your important chemical knowledge to various cross-functional projects, just as you will rethink and help solve unexpected challenges.


You can look forward to spending a great deal of your time in the laboratory together with the technicians, developing new methods and collaborating closely with adhesive, material and mechanical specialists, our end-users and of course, your colleagues within the team. 


”You’ll join projects for longer periods of time but also solve shorter tasks in other projects. What’s great is that we still sit together as a team, so there’s always a specialised colleague close by,” says Lene.


Ready to use your specialist knowledge?

  • For you to get the most out of this role, we imagine that you: 
  • Have a master’s degree or higher with a solid knowledge of organic and analytical chemistry as well as a broad background within chemistry
  • Have experience with chromatographic techniques like HPLC and GC-MS
  • Have preferred knowledge/experience within ICP 
  • Have a good understanding of sample preparation techniques
  • Speak and write English fluently
  • Have a drive to understand complex chemical problems


If you would like to know more about the position, please e-mail or call Senior Scientist Christian Engelbrekt at or on +45 4911 1445 or Director for Pre-Clinical Lene Feldskov Nielsen at or on +45 4911 1888.
