Mowi Feed is seeking to recruit a Fish Nutrition Researcher/ Product Developer
The position represents an exciting opportunity to be part of a dynamic team working in the challenging and fast-moving area of salmon feed. Ultimately, you will be working alongside our experts in fish nutrition, raw material procurement, feed production and logistics. Simply put, your number one challenge will be to deliver the best products using competitively purchased raw materials in a highly competitive manufacturing environment.
We are seeking highly motivated, technically competent individual to focus on the formulation and continuous development of feeds that guarantee optimal salmon performance and quality whilst simultaneously extracting maximum value from the raw materials available to us. The role will contribute significantly to the development of our feed as it evolves to fit the needs of a highly successful farming business whilst delivering the rapidly changing requirements of retailers, fish quality and sustainability schemes. As part of the team reporting to the Director of Nutrition and Formulation, you will be delivering class-leading salmon nutrition through the optimum use of raw materials sourced from around the globe.
Based in the City of Bergen (Norway), you will work in the department responsible for a spectrum of activities from establishing nutrient requirements to defining the quality and value of the raw materials the business buys. As a Researcher / Product Developer, you will be responsible for the management of nutrition and feeding projects at our Field Trials stations in Norway and Scotland and involved in projects with a wide spectrum of third party R&D organisations both commercial and academic. The successful candidate will be involved in the implementation of the knowledge gained as well as in communicating the value of their discoveries to the wider Mowi business and beyond. The Nutrition and Formulation Team integrates seamlessly with the Operations and Procurement Departments to create class-leading products for the World’s #1 salmon farmer.

Candidates should possess a good degree in biological or veterinary sciences combined with an MSc or preferably a PhD in animal nutrition.
