Intern Research and Development

Incotec Europe, Enkhuizen, The Netherlands
Temporary vacancy (6 months)


A temporary vacancy as an Intern at our R&D department in Enkhuizen has recently become available. R&D is responsible for new product development as well as finding creative solutions to help make each seed that is planted, count.

The assignment

The preservation of our products is guaranteed by the presence of biocides. Unfortunately, introducing biological plant protection products and microorganisms results in an incompatibility between our product and the microorganisms, as biocides are designed to kill microorganisms.
Biostatics prevent growth/multiplication of microorganism but do not kill the microorganisms and are a possible solution to use in conjunction with our film coats and microorganisms. Incotec would like to explore ways in which our current film coat products, biologicals, and biostatics can be combined successfully, and still have a product shelf-life of 1 year, and an on-seed microbial viability of at least 6 months.
In order fulfil this exciting position, we are looking for a team member that has:

  • A MSc student in the field of Plant Biochemistry, Microbiology or Biotechnology
  • A result-oriented attitude, with the ability to work as part of a team as well as independently
  • A keen eye for technology and will enjoy working in a multidisciplinary team
  • Strong analytical and problem-solving skills
  • Good communication skills in English
  • Availability of at least 4-6 months
