Novo Nordisk is a focused healthcare company and the world leader in diabetes care. We know that we cannot create all the answers in-house, so we actively engage in collaborations with academia and simultaneously welcome innovation and talented young scientists through our fellowship programme - our future depends on our ability to work with the best scientists with the competencies we need.
To support this, Novo Nordisk has for more than 20 years driven several dedicated fellowship programmes for joint PhD and postdoc projects. These focus on generating new knowledge and skills, investigating a needed research or technology question, and strengthening the recruitment base for Novo Nordisk R&D.
Departments or project groups across Novo Nordisk R&D therefore from time to time achieve internal or external funding to hire individual PhD or postdoctoral candidates for such a project, and open positions are posted as job openings at the Novo Nordisk career website.
The novoSTAR programme, is a gateway to a life-changing career. With access to state-of-the-art technology we are able to fast track from basic/applied research to new innovative medicines, and in collaboration with our R&D organisation, the novoSTAR fellow will work to help change the lives of patients.
The Novo Nordisk-Oxford Fellowship is Novo Nordisk’s elite postdoc programme with the University of Oxford: www.rdm.ox.ac.uk/work-with-us/novo-nordisk-oxford-fellowships
Furthermore, Novo Nordisk participates in a number of industry-academia collaborations and consortia supported by EU funding (such as IMI or Horizon2020 MSCA), which also includes a number of postdoc and PhD projects at the company.
