The best job for the world. Probably.
Carlsberg is brewing for a better today and tomorrow. That is our purpose, and to support the journey towards a better tomorrow, we are now establishing the "Carlsberg Young Scientists’ Community". The community will build on the scientific strengths of the Carlsberg Research Laboratory, to further develop solutions to some of the most pressing issues of tomorrow and in particular - our sustainability ambitions of ZERO carbon emissions and ZERO water waste at our breweries. Have we caught your attention yet? Then come join us with the best job FOR the world. Probably.
As one of the world’s leading breweries, we are serious about our purpose of brewing for a better today and tomorrow. That is why we have presented some of the most ambitious sustainability plans in the brewing industry in our new programme, Together Towards ZERO.
Together Towards ZERO is a response to increasing consumer demand for sustainable products in a time of global challenges such as climate change, water scarcity and public health issues. The programme is an integral part of our SAIL’22 strategy and consists of four major ambitions – ZERO carbon footprint, ZERO water waste, ZERO irresponsible drinking and a ZERO accidents culture – each with individual and measurable targets.
While we have a firm hand on today’s solutions and technologies, we are always striving for more, which is why we need YOU!
The "Carlsberg Young Scientists’ Community" will be led by the Carlsberg Research Laboratory - home to ground-breaking developments such as the pH-scale, method for purifying yeast and climate-tolerant barley. As one of our young scientists, you will spend three years working with fellow Postdocs and other leading scientists to fuel innovative solutions to some of the world’s biggest challenges – and in particular, our 2030 targets of eliminating carbon emissions and halving water usage at our breweries. In the spirit of our purpose, you will be a vital part of the community, and solutions created will be shared with the rest of the world so that others can benefit.
