Do you have a university background in biochemistry or a comparable field and experience with the development and validation of ELISA or LC-MS/MS assays? Would you like to use your knowledge and skills to help improve healthcare? At QPS Netherlands, you have the opportunity to work in an informal atmosphere and contribute to the development of new medicines. QPS currently has open positions for both a scientist and a senior scientist in the large molecule LC-MS/MS team.
As Scientist, you will work in our Good Laboratory Practice (GLP)-compliant laboratory, where we analyze bioanalytical samples, to support the development of new drug. As a member of the LC-MS/MS competence center, you will be responsible for the development and validation of new methods for the analysis of challenging, large molecule (proteins and peptides) drug candidates. This position involves practical laboratory work, as well as coordination of projects and contact with clients.
As Senior Scientist, your will be the project manager for multiple bioanalytical projects, including method development, validation and bioanalysis. You will be the primary contact for our clients and you will be responsible for financial project control, regulatory compliance and timelines of each project. You will work closely with your colleague scientists, the technicians and the team lead or competence center director to whom you will report. Although an introduction period in the laboratory is part of the training for this position, laboratory work will not be the primary part of this role.
What we ask:
For both functions, we are searching for an analytical or protein scientist with a university or PhD level education who wants to pursue a career as expert in the Pharmaceutical field. Experience with LC-MS analysis is an advantage. If you have experience in the field of project management and are fluent in both English and Dutch, you are the ideal candidate and we invite you to apply for this position.
What is offered:
For both positions, we offer a temporary position for at least one year, with the possibility of a permanent contract following. These positions concern a full time job (32 hour minimum) within a dynamic international organization. You will be working in an enthusiastic and dedicated team with good primary and secondary working conditions.
QPS Netherlands B.V. in Groningen is part of an international contract research organization performing bioanalysis for the pharmaceutical industry. You will be working in one of the teams within the division BDM (Bioanalysis and Drug Metabolism).
If you are interested in either of these positions and you would like to contribute to the development of new medicines, we look forward to receiving your application. Please send your CV and motivation letter to [email protected], attention of the HRM department.
