Vacancy: Research Chemist Chemocatalysis at InnoSyn B.V. (Geleen, The Netherlands) (0.8-1 FTE)

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 50 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 5 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.

What we offer

A challenging, exciting job with many opportunities. You will interact with leading scientists on various topics such as (industrial) organic chemistry, chemocatalysis, biocatalysis and process intensification. The working atmosphere is open and stimulating. This vacancy concerns in first instance a temporary position with a competitive remuneration package. In case of mutual satisfaction, a permanent contract will be considered.

What we ask  

  • You have a Bachelor or Master degree in (homogeneous) catalysis and optionally have up to 3 years of (industrial) experience.
