CV of Agnieszka Zygadlo Nielsen Biotechnologist with multi-European backgroundPersonal InformationName: Agnieszka Zygadlo Nielsen Phone: (+45) 61 67 70 20Birthday: June 27, 1978 Email: firstname.lastname@example.orgNationality: French Address: Landehjælpvej 14Family: Married to Per Lassen Nielsen(Danish) 2300 København S Two sonsRésumé I am an educated research scientist with a broad background in plant biotechnology. I hold two masters8Genetics and Oncology) and a PhD degree in biotechnology. After a one year post doc, I worked in a medium scalebiotech company for two years. Due to the closing down of the company, I have been working at Aarhus andCopenhagen University since then. However, after establishing my family, I realize I would like to change careertowards work in a biotech company. My relevant personal skills are that I am dedicated and focused at work combined to a high sense of being ateam player with a great sense of humor.I am energetic, well organized, open minded and I appreciate being in aninternational environment. I like searching and coming up with solutions to different new tasks.Educational Background2012: Project management module 1 and 2 theory completed at Implement consulting PMP certification in process2005: PhD degree in molecular biology Faculty ofLife Sciences, University of Copenhagen, Denmark2001: Postgraduate degree in cellular biology and physiology, obtained with honours University D.Diderot, Paris VII, France2000: MSc in cancer research and additional research engineer degree (Magistère) in Genetics University D.Diderot, Paris VII, France1996: High School Diploma (Baccalauréatscientifique) Lycée Louis Bascan, Rambouillet, FranceEmploymentexperiencesince april 2010: Scientist, Faculty of Life Sciences, Plant biochemistry laboratory, University of Copenhagen in Prof. Poul Erik Jensen and Prof. Birger Lindberg Møller groups in the synthetic biology UNIK project2009-2010: Scientist, Aarhus University, Frederiksberg in Prof. Peter Ulvskov’s group in the Renewall European biofuel project2007-2008: Research scientist atAresa A/S2006: Post-doc, Faculty of Life Sciences, Plant biochemistry laboratory, University of Copenhagen
