For our client, Janssen Vaccines & Prevention, we are looking for a Scientist DSP.


  • PhD or PDeng
  • DSP / Process development
  • GMP / LEAN
  • Data analysis / report writing

Process development consists of a USP and a DSP department and is responsible for the development of scalable, pharmaceutical-grade production processes for viral vaccines using mammalian cell lines as a production platform. Novel technologies are used to make sure that the processes are safe, reliable, scalable and cost-effective, so that the vaccines can be produced in large quantities at low costs. The developed production processes are transferred into GMP production facilities for the production of clinical batches and scaled-up for commercial production. All activities are performed in close collaboration with other departments.
We are looking for a motivated Scientist who can design studies based on scientific knowledge. Who has experience with levelling of studies on a local and a platform level.
You will represent DSP in multidisciplinary project team(s), being responsible for defining study approaches, in close connection to all relevant stakeholders. In order to develop the process, you translate research goals into actions and accomplish the targets by delivering study designs and study plans, analyze data and write or coordinate scientific study reports, all in close connection with the customer.

Who we're looking for
You have a PhD in a relevant discipline in biopharmaceutical sciences/engineering, biotechnology or chemistry or PDeng with at least 4 years of experience in the industry. You have experience with downstream process development using DoE, ideally with hands-on experience with DSP unit operations like IEX chromatography and UF/DF. Both experience with vaccine development and knowledge of GMP are advantages as well as experience with Lean/Process Excellence. You have demonstrated communication capabilities and the ability to bridge between production and development and between different development- and production sites.
