A stimulating job in our Process Transfer Department in Copenhagen as a Downstream Process Transfer scientist is open for a quality-minded new colleague with biopharmaceutical processing experience. 

The Job
AGC Biologics continues to enjoy great success, with a steadily increasing number of projects – many of which are late stage development projects preparing for commercial launch.

With AGC Biologic´s increasing activities, we are looking for a new colleague within Downstream Process Transfer.

  • Support to GMP downstream manufacturing processes

The position offers interaction with a large number of stakeholders, and is unique in having contact with both our customers and internal departments involved in process development, manufacturing and quality. You will be introduced to biopharmaceutical companies from all over the world and be an active player in their projects. The department is mainly operating in an office environment so no laboratory or manufacturing hands-on work is to be expected.

The Department
The Process Transfer Department currently consists of 2 teams (Upstream Process Transfer and Downstream Process Transfer) and you will be part of the Downstream Process Transfer Team which includes 7 scientists and a Team Lead. We have an open communication and strong support and flexibility within the team and between the department teams.

Our new colleague should have the following experiences:
  • PhD. or M.Sc. within biochemistry, protein chemistry, biotechnology, or similar educational background.
  • A minimum of 2 years experience within biopharmaceutical development and/or manufacturing
  • Experience and knowledge of biopharmaceutical downstream unit operations.

  • Strong driver of interdepartmental tasks with the to prioritize between many different tasks
AGC Biologics Copenhagen
AGC Biologics offers a dynamic working place and an excellent opportunity for working and growing with a varied array of tasks and challenges. You will get insight into and experience with the way the various departments throughout a biologics contract development and manufacturing organization interact in order to achieve success. Exciting and challenging assignments will keep coming your way, but you will largely be able to plan your daily work on your own.
