Job profile

You are primarily responsible for supporting the development and execution of bioanalytical methods to study the pharmacokinetics and safety of biopharmaceutical drugs. The drugs of interest are mainly antibody-drug conjugates (ADCs). ADCs are innovative medicines, currently mainly aimed at the treatment of cancer. In this role, you will be involved in analytical challenges in support of (pre-)clinical studies, e.g. pharmacokinetics, metabolite identification and protein binding. To enable that, you are a trained analytical chemist, with a background in (accurate mass) LC-MS(/MS). Most of your work will be research based (non-GxP), however, you have a high quality standard in data processing and documentation management. You should especially aspire working at the bench, although data analysis could also be an important part of your responsibilities.

Your profile

Your letter of motivation and CV should show that you have:

  • A (bio)analytical life sciences education, at least a bachelor’s degree
  • Preferably experience in a comparable position and/or work environment
  • Hands-on experience with LC-MS(/MS)
  • Preferably experience with the analysis of biologicals such as monoclonal antibodies and conjugates (and possibly small molecules).

In interviews you will be able to demonstrate that:
You can work independently on your practical tasks, but you are able to co-operate on all other aspects in your research activities. You are flexible, you work hard and you are willing to take over work from others.
