At the department of Downstream Processing (DSP), we produce monoclonal antibodies on a large scale for the treatment of several auto-immune diseases. Continuous optimization of production processes is vital. The following processes are being used at DSP: column chromatography, ultrafiltration/diafiltration, filtration, virus removal step and in process testing (e.g. HPLC, OD280, pH, conductivity, osmolarity).
We are looking for 4 bright MSc. interns that are enthusiastic about business innovation and process improvement. We currently have the following projects. Based on changing business needs, the project subject may vary slightly.
what we offer
- €650 gross per month (based on 40 hours)
- Leiden – the Netherlands
- Learn and grow your potential
- Develop your skills, knowledge and experience
who are you
- You are a master’s student at a university in the Netherlands;
- You are following a MSc study in Life Science and Technology, Chemical Engineering, Bio-medical Engineering, Chemistry, Pharmacy or related
- Available from 1 February 2024 (startdate is negotiable till 15 February 2024)
- You are available for at least 6 months (longer is possible);
- You are willing to work at least 4 days a week from the Leiden office.
what will you do
This are two example from projects we had on this department in the past:
1. Currently we use a 4 or a 5 day cadence for our cell lines. However, there is an increased need for production of our medicines. Therefore, there is need for accelerated cadence. This project aims to investigate whether it is feasible to start a 3-day cadence for 2 of our cell lines. In addition, if it is feasible, under what conditions is this feasible? The second aim is to investigate whether it is feasible to start a 4 day cadence for another cell line, and under what conditions. In addition, implementation and testing is part of this project.
2. The focuss of this project is data collection and data visualisation. There are many different systems and
processes on the shop floor inside operations. Each of these systems have different data sources. In this kind project you will answer questions such as: where do you get the data from? How do the different data sources work together? The final step is to visualize the data to present it to the business. The purpose is to identify bottlenecks and Key Performance Indicators (KPIs).
During the interview process, we will discuss in more detail the projects available at that time.
where will you work
Janssen Biologics B.V. has a leading position in the world of biotechnology. We develop, produce and sell medicines and vaccines that are used worldwide in the fight against cardiovascular, vascular and infectious diseases and autoimmune diseases such as Crohn’s disease and rheumatoid arthritis.
