We are the Translational Safety Assessment Chapter and drive the nonclinical safety evaluation of novel drugs with a lot of passion and commitment. We are currently a group of about 40 people in Pharma Research and Early Development. We work closely with other related groups working on drug development aspects, such as DMPK, biomarkers, clinical pharmacology, investigative safety and more. We are supporting projects from inception all the way to filing, but there is also space for fun and laughs in day-to-day life. We have an "us" culture and we balance our work with continuous personal growth and team development.
Excipients are often critical to achieve a sufficient exposure to drugs for efficacy. However, excipients are by themselves not necessarily inactive ingredients of a formulation and may exert unwanted side effects (historic note: the US Food and Drug Administration came into existence, at least partially, following the use of toxic solvents in an antibiotic drug formulation). (COMPANY NAME) has used a large variety of excipients in efficacy, safety and human studies to date. Your main task will be to collect the available information (COMPANY NAME)-wide and beyond (literature, manufacturers etc) and organize the data in a well accessible and reusable manner.
Besides that, you will:
* learn a lot about drug development and nonclinical safety assessment
* contribute to the development of safe medicines
* learn to work and collaborate in a multi-disciplinary environment
* potentially publish your findings in a scientific journal
* You are passionate about drug development
* You are currently enrolled in a Bachelor's or preferably Master's degree program, or have recently graduated (within the last 12 months) in one of the following fields: life sciences (biology, pharmacy, veterinary medicine or similar)
* You would like to bring in and expand your experience in this area and contribute to writing a publication.
* You are proficient in English and not afraid of interacting with colleagues in our (COMPANY NAME) Innovation Center in Basel/Switzerland
* You know how to work independently and organize yourself
* You use IT tools to organize data (no programming/ database experience required, but an asset)
* You are entrepreneurial and have a positive mindset and a can-do mentality!
* Your development is important to us: that's why we attach great importance to you being able to work on a variety of tasks and always learn something new.
* In order to support your development, you have regular exchanges and feedback with your internship supervisors.
* In our team, you take on responsibility and actively support us in improving our biomedical understanding.
* We are living in 2022: you can flexibly schedule your working hours and do home office.
* Of course, once the pandemic situation has improved, you have access to facilities and services at the Basel campus, such as the employee canteens, swimming pool, gym, and much more!
Quite simple: please submit your CV online! For now, we do not need further documents, such as letters of motivation or certificates. We look forward to your application!
