Project Description


BioMarin is the world leader in delivering therapeutics that provide meaningful advances to patients who live with serious and life-threatening rare genetic diseases. We target diseases that lack effective therapies and affect relatively small numbers of patients, many of whom are children. These conditions are often inherited, difficult to diagnose, progressively debilitating and have few, if any, treatment options. BioMarin will continue to focus on advancing therapies that are the first or best of their kind. 

BioMarin’s Development Sciences group is responsible for everything from research and discovery to post-market clinical development. Development Sciences involves all bench and clinical research and the associated groups that support those endeavors. Our teams work on developing first-in-class and best-in-class therapeutics that provide meaningful advances to patients who live with rare diseases. Come join our team and make a meaningful impact on patients’ lives.

Joining BioMarin as an intern Document Specialist, is an excellent opportunity for aspiring individuals who have a keen interest in learning and entering the biopharmaceutical and scientific industry. Gaining experience and learning about the core, essential documentation which is collected during most clinical trials and related studies, will help provide knowledge, understanding and a foundation for almost any role in the industry.

The successful candidate will learn and utilize Good Clinical and Documentation practices (GCP/GDP) to assist the existing operations team with processing content submitted from existing/current clinical trials in Phenylketonuria (PKU), Batten disease and Achondroplasia.

As well as gaining experience within a clinical trial environment, the successful candidate will gain skills which can be used industry wide, as well as learn BioMarin specific processes and procedures, which could be beneficial for future role consideration.

As the biopharmaceutical industry continues moves towards a "paperless industry", the successful intern will also receive training on BioMarin's electronic systems and assist with serval 'e' transition projects. The projects will consist of making existing clinical trial, observational and post marketing study documentation readily available in electronic format. Quality check, digitalization and indexing are just some of the required roles and responsibilities for each project.

Reporting directly to an experienced Document Specialist, and working part of a well-established, hardworking team, the successful candidate will have continuous support and guidance on a daily basis.

Upon completion of the placement, the successful intern will have gained the following BioMarin accreditation;

- GCP Introduction

- GDP Introduction

- TMF/eTMF Introduction

- Veeva Vault User Training

- SOP and WI Completion Certificate
