Project Description

Job Description
  • Do you have a Master in Science?

  • And do you thrive on getting your hands dirty on a production floor, where you can build an in-depth biopharmaceutical production knowledge that helps patients suffering from sclerosis?
  •  Then the opportunity as Manufacturing Associate might be your dream job!
  • Our company continues to expand, and we are therefore looking for professional Manufacturing Associates for our three production departments - Media Prep & Support, Cell Culture and Purification. 
  • The departments cover different steps in the biopharmaceutical production such as media preparation, CIP, SIP of equipment, expansion of cell cultures, and purification via multiple column steps. The common denominator, though, is the diversity of our employees who have different experiences and educational backgrounds, but collaborate closely on getting our medicine safely and quickly to the market. And that we acknowledge and develop each and every employee!

  •  Execution and revision of cGMP documents 
  •  Handling and completion of batch documentation
  •  In-process measurements and aseptic sampling 
  •  Execution of validation protocols 

  • It is important that you are technically and operationally minded so that you quickly acquire an in-depth understanding of production equipment and processes, if you do not have previous cGMP experience. 
  • Our future colleague is quality-minded, thorough - a person who takes pride in materials and processes that are “in order”. 
  • You are also on your on turf when it comes to numbers, math and IT tools and your English skills, in writing and speech, are excellent. 

We are looking for a person who has a relevant educational background within the scientific field or has a targeted educational background as e.g. process technologist, process operator, or industrial operator - OR a candidate who has acquired solid cGMP/SOP experience in a similar production company.
