Qualification Details

You like challenges and look for solutions, and like working together with colleagues and industrial clients. Experience of independent work applying process technologies to develop food products is key, particularly previous experience from food extrusion. We think you have a master's degree in engineering (or equivalent). Experience from the food industry in production or product development is a strong merit.

You should be able to independently plan and perform practical experiments in our test and demo environments and enjoy maintaining and developing customer contacts. You are fluent in English, both in writing and verbally, and good knowledge in Swedish is a strong merit. We are constantly challenged with new opportunities and problems, and we cannot promise you an easy job, though a job together with enthusiastic colleagues who collectively contribute to sustainable development and competitive industrial applications.

Responsibilities/Job Description

The role as R&D engineer includes independent practical work in our test and demo facilities especially focusing on twin-screw extrusion of food products. It also includes prototype development combined with fundamental understanding of the raw material properties and how the process influences the final product characteristics. All work is conducted in close collaboration with our customers, who range from SMEs to large multinational companies. The role also includes responsibility and training for various equipment and maintenance of the food grade pilot plant as well as contact with customers, establishing and maintaining a network within industry and coordinating and running projects. The work is always in close collaboration with other colleagues and competences, within and outside RISE.
