About Synthon Biopharmaceuticals

Synthon Biopharmaceuticals focuses on development of innovative medicines, including antibody-drug conjugates, in two key therapeutic areas: oncology and autoimmune diseases. In the coming years, we aim to deliver on our promise to introduce new medicines for diseases with high unmet medical need.

We are inquisitive, entrepreneurial and independent. We make creative choices, and are building a promising portfolio of next-generation medicines.

Synthon Biopharmaceuticals is based in Nijmegen, the Netherlands, where close to 300 staff work at our state-of-the art biotech campus.

We are interested in result-oriented people with a sharp mind and entrepreneurial spirit, who can contribute to our ambition to provide solutions to the healthcare challenges of today and tomorrow.

Job profile

The Pre-clinical Research & Development department of Synthon Biopharmaceuticals is mainly responsible for early stage drug development for our biopharmaceutical pipeline. Part of drug development involves the quantitation of our (protein) drugs in biological samples, and studying interactions of our drugs with other proteins. You have a broad understanding of ligand-binding assays and as such you are able to support both the development and execution of quantitative assays, mainly ELISA.

In addition, you have strong skills in SPR and other protein interaction techniques. You are able to translate project-related protein interaction questions into meaningful experiments, to develop new methods to study protein interactions, and to analyze and translate data in support of biopharmaceutical drug development. A broad analytical background enables you to select the best analytical solution for a biological question. Most of the work will be research based (non-GxP); however, you have a high standard of quality with regard to processing data and documentation.

Your profile

Your letter of motivation and CV show that you have:

  • A (bioanalytical) life sciences education, preferably a master’s degree
  • Preferably experience in an equivalent position and/or work environment
  • Experience in ligand-binding assays and SPR.

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

Important dates

Please send your application before 20 September 2019. The first round of interviews will take place on 8 October 2019. The second round of interviews will take place on 14 October 2019.
