We are looking for an experienced Principle Scientist to be part of Novo Nordisk A/S and participate in changing the quality of life for millions of people living with chronic diseases.


About the department

The Diabetes & Metabolism department is part of Global Diabetes, Cardio-Renal and Translational Research, a cross functional research area within Global Drug Discovery, Novo Nordisk A/S. As part of Novo Nordisk's new strategy within chronic diseases, the team will focus on target identification, target validation and pre-clinical characterisation of new assets to become novel treatment options for patients with cardiometabolic diseases. In Diabetes and Metabolism Biology we work in an organ-centric and disease agnostic manner. We have two teams, Muscle & Adipose Biology and Liver & Gut Biology, working with high interdependencies to develop, characterise and use in vitro tools to elucidate mode-of-action and profiling of novel biology and molecules for early evaluation of drug candidates. 


The position

We are seeking a talented and experienced scientist with a strong scientific cardiometabolic background to join our Muscle and Adipose tissue Biology Team. You will be part of a multidisciplinary team exploring and identifying new treatment options for diabetes, cardiovascular- and kidney disease. 

The successful candidate will be responsible for exploring novel target opportunities and executing on established projects, including design of in vitro studies to validate human relevance, assess translational tools and exploration of a target's putative mechanism of action. There will be an emphasis on development of human cell based in vitro disease phenotypic models and experience herein is a requirement, and training in tissue engineering or biological engineering is considered an advantage. You will work closely with scientists and technicians throughout the organisation to move projects forward across the value chain. Furthermore, the candidate will take part in identifying new target opportunities as well as evaluating potential external opportunities from academia, biotech or pharma.



You hold a Ph.D. and have many years of experience in biological sciences or medicine with in-depth knowledge and proven scientific track-record in cardiometabolic disease pathophysiology. You have expertise in molecular and cell biology, in-depth knowledge of muscle and/or adipose tissue biology and relevant human in vitro model systems. It is considered an advantage if the candidate in addition has relevant experience within other metabolic related organs such as liver or gut biology. International work experience and a solid international scientific network are mandatory. In addition to your scientific profile, you are a dedicated, open-minded, and an innovative team player with good collaboration and problem-solving skills. You are organized and result oriented.
