The Carlsberg Group is creating a ‘Young Scientists Community’ to work on the brewer’s sustainability program, announcing the launch at the World Economic Forum in Davos this week.

Scientists will build on work done at the Carlsberg Research Laboratory and can expect to work on programs such as reducing water waste and carbon footprints.

The community is being launched with the job posting under the headline: ‘The best job for the world. Probably’.

Six positions available

The Young Scientists Community will be led by the Carlsberg Research Laboratory, which works on innovations such as purified yeast and climate-tolerant barley. The Community will have access to skills and expertise from across the group, as well as the chance to test scaling of new ideas.

Key to their work will be addressing ways Carlsberg will achieve its targets under its ‘Together Towards Zero’​ sustainability program, such as eliminating carbon emissions, halving water usage at its breweries by 2030, and switching to 100% renewable electricity by 2022.  

Carlsberg will recruit six postdocs/scientists who have experience and expertise in the relevant areas. The successful applicants will be based in Copenhagen or Switzerland for three years, full time. The closing date for applications is February 15, 2018.

Carlsberg Group CEO Cees ‘t Hart said: “We are looking at all options to reduce the environmental impact of brewing, and the young scientists will play a key role in this work. The Young Scientists Community will identify innovative solutions for achieving our 2030 targets within water and carbon for the benefit of the Carlsberg Group and the world.”
