R&D Engineer for photonics and spectroscopy (m/f/d)


About you

You have a M.Sc. degree in engineering, physics or similar and most likely a Ph.D. You have proven results working with experimental optics and spectroscopy, and preferably experience with a number of the following topics:
  • Near infrared spectroscopy and optical systems including detectors and electronics.
  • Optical simulations in e.g. Zemax.
  • Data analysis in e.g. MatLab.
People describe you as structured, innovative and self-driven, yet you value a strong team and the effort to share knowledge. Your record of accomplishment shows an excellent ability to understand complex systems and to work systematically with troubleshooting incl. designing and performing experiments. Further, you have a curious mind, thrive on challenges and can integrate the work from many engineering disciplines. If you recognize yourself in the above description, we look forward to hearing from you!

Join our R&D department

We are looking for an ambitious and highly skilled R&D engineer or physicist to drive the development of future analytical instruments for food analysis.

Your responsibility will be to develop and implement current and future optical hardware platforms - taking the technology from the lab environment to full-scale production.

The responsibility includes the technical overview of the complete measuring system in an instrument or technology development project. Here you will be a central team member and succeed by obtaining complete and detailed knowledge of the path from sample to finished result and the interfaces to the rest of the instrument. Your tasks will span experimental work and measurements, simulations and design in close collaboration with data scientists, mechanical and electrical engineers, software development and other departments outside R&D. Key to succeeding in development projects is the ability to plan, coordinate and communicate results to the project members and stakeholders.

You will be become part of the Spectroscopy group in the Technology department of R&D. The team is responsible for innovation, development and support of the measuring systems of FOSS' product based on either FT-IR, NIR, X-ray or imaging technology.

Together, the teams in Technology hold a high level of experience and competence within optics, physics, electronics, biochemistry and microbiology. We strive to deliver solutions performing to the edge the technology with world leading relation between performance, cost, footprint and reliability.

Specifically you will focus on our NIR technologies and participate in a collaboration project with university and industry partners on future in-line analytical instruments for food processing.
