Position title
Microbiologist Estonia

Join the Interchemie family as microbiologist. Without your professional laboratory techniques such as RT-PCR and qPCR techniques nothing moves in our company. Our high standard GMP and GMP+ production requires a high functioning microbiological control of the production environment, raw materials, climate and products. You’ll join a highly skilled team as a key-person working on interesting projects while using high quality resources.

Your Position

Our microbiology team consists of 5 experts and we are expending it to 7. You will work in our own high quality lab and in some cases work together with our external partners for certain experiments. We are proud of our high standards, resources and processes, but we do appreciate that you keep an open mind to possibly even better ways and techniques.

Experience as a microbiologist is essential, but not necessarily in veterinary pharmaceuticals. If you have no experience but do have a master of bachelor in relevant studies as e.g. Microbiology or Molecular Biology you are more than welcome to apply – see our technician vacancy. In either case do we provide a challenging position with room, possibility and assistance for growth. In this function ‘ownership’ and ‘responsibility’ are important keywords. There will be an appeal on your independence and professionality.
