VACANCY: Associate Scientist Flow Chemistry at InnoSyn B.V. (0.8-1.0 FTE, Geleen, The Netherlands)

About InnoSyn

InnoSyn is an SME that primarily focusses on R&D towards the development of (bio)chemical production processes for third parties worldwide. InnoSyn currently has approximately 60 employees and is located at the Brightlands Chemelot Campus in Geleen, The Netherlands. The company has a new pilot plant at its disposal. Although InnoSyn was founded only 6 years ago, it has a long and impressive track record in the area of development and implementation of industrial manufacturing processes that was built up over more than 40 years.

The Challenge

Within InnoSyn, low-cost and environmentally friendly manufacturing processes are developed for customers that are active in a broad range of fields like pharmaceuticals, nutritional products, dyes, flavor and fragrances, monomers for high performance materials and products based on renewable raw materials. In order to perform the various projects, InnoSyn is looking for an associate scientist in the field of flow chemistry with excellent experimental skills and the ability to translate chemical concepts into practical and scalable solutions. Flow Chemistry or continuous manufacturing of chemicals enables the safe application of extreme reaction conditions and/or hazardous reagents, as such being one of the key synthetic technologies for ultimate route scouting. Your key contribution would be to demonstrate the feasibility of a flow concept in real life using our on-demand 3D-printed reactor technology.

What we offer

A challenging, exciting job with unique opportunities of cross-fertilization between organic chemistry, flow technology, bio- and chemocatalysis as well as process intensification. You will interact with leading scientists, both within and outside InnoSyn. We have state-of the art infrastructure, such as on-demand 3D-printed reactors, data logging technology, a multi-purpose pilot plant, a cryo-flow skid and in-line analytical tools. The working atmosphere is open, dynamic and stimulating with lots of flexibility. We offer a competitive remuneration package including 38 holidays and a solid pension plan. More importantly, we pledge to co-invest in your personal development as people are central to the success of InnoSyn.
