A global biotech company that focuses on the develepment, production and marketing of vaccines, recombinant proteins and antibodies to prevent and combat infectious and other diseases. You work within the department working on the development of scalable production processes of novel vaccines for viral infectious diseases.

Wat ga je doen - What will your job be

Are you experienced in downstream processing and would you like to perform challenging hands-on lab work in R&D? In this role you support drug development tracks by designing and executing downstream processing/purification methods for protein antigens. Interested? Please read on!

As a Associate Scientist Downstream Processing you work on the development of purification processes for viral vaccines. You choose and execute the method for purification of carbohydrates and proteins in this challenging hands-on position. Morover, you have the following responsibilites:

  • You will contribute to viral vaccine projects by developing and executing purification (DSP) of protein antigens. This is a hands-on role in the laboratory that require close collaboration within the department 
  • You organize, set up, monitor and evaluate  antigen purification experiments, with help of small/medium-scale include filtration, chromatography and UF/DF
  • The processes that you will develop are transferred to GMP production facilities to produce clinical batches and scaled up production
  • Futhermore, you analyze and interpret the data and come up with follow-up steps after evaluation
  • Moreover, you are responsible for maintenance of equipment that is used for purification purposes 
  • Your work as Associate Scientist Downstream will be performed under limited supervision of a Scientist
