Microbiologist for Technical Services and Innovation Projects

Danish Technological Institute in Aarhus is looking for a talented and dedicated microbiologist to develop and apply high-end solutions to meet the challenges in the oil and gas industry.  

Developing and applying high-end solutions  

As a consultant in Oil & Gas – Section for Oilfield Microbiology – you will be involved in the daily assistance of our clients, including the design and completion of laboratory and field experiments, and reporting to and advising our clients. You will maintain and develop client relations by delivering high quality service and results. In your daily work, you will be involved in projects that focus on the development and implementation of a range of technologies, for instance:  

  • Solutions for monitoring and mitigating microbiologically induced corrosion, minimising risk of failures and loss of production. 
  • Technologies for optimising oil recovery, e.g., through plugging of fractures in reservoirs and improvement of water sweep. 
  • Sensor technologies for a selection of online monitoring purposes. 
  • Technologies for improving the understanding of flow in reservoirs enabling decision making about production optimisation. 

 You will cooperate closely with our clients in contract R&D activities and provide tailored solutions to fit the specific needs of our clients. The position has potential for a high degree of personal and professional development. Occasional travels for meetings, conferences and fieldwork (on- and offshore) is to be expected.  

Solid knowledge of microbiology and excellent cooperative skills 

To succeed in this position, you must have an MSc or a PhD in microbiology, chemistry, chemical engineering or similar. Experience from the oil and gas industry is an advantage, but not a requirement. You possess a broad understanding of environmental and molecular microbiology, as well as chemistry.  You are a team player with strong interpersonal skills, but you are also comfortable working independently. You take pride in cooperating with our clients, and ensuring that we deliver what has been agreed and to the highest possible value for our clients. Prior experience with technical project sales and delivery, client development, or R&D project application and execution would be an advantage. Written and oral communication skills in English are essential, and Danish skills are an advantage, but not a requirement.  

DTI Oil & Gas 

You will become part of DTI Oil & Gas, where a cross-disciplinary team of skilled colleagues deliver innovative services and contract innovation to the oil and gas industry internationally. We are rooted in strong competencies within chemistry, physics, and microbiology and utilise our competencies to improve efficiency and safety and minimize environmental impact from productions. The centre is a part of the Life Science division, counting around 80 employees working broadly within environment, chemistry, and biology.  


If you have any questions regarding the job, then please do not hesitate to contact either Team Manager Morten Poulsen on +45 7220 1805, or Director Thomas Lundgaard on +45 7220 1826.  The position is open for applications until April 15th, 2018. Review of applications and interviews will be conducted on an ongoing basis
