Spring Co-op/Drug Product Chemistry

Medicine Development and Supply-Analytical Development is a highly experienced Chemistry, Manufacturing and Controls (CMC) organization accountable for delivering robust, cost effective and competitive products and manufacturing processes spanning the full life-cycle of asset development from Discovery through commercialization. These activities are delivered through state-of-the-art internal facilities as well as strategic external partners. Collectively, the team is accountable for CMC activities encompassing cell line development, cell culture/ microbial fermentation, purification development, and drug product/ device development. We also pioneer innovative technologies to improve robustness, reduce cost of goods, and improve the patient experience.

As a co-op in Drug substance and Drug Product Analytical, you will be a member of a highly skilled team of scientists responsible for the development, qualification, and implementation of various analytical methods including methods testing for product quality and the quantification of all GSK biopharm assets. You will be involved in all aspects of the biopharmaceutical development including engagement with project teams and other stakeholders for various projects under different stages of development. In this dynamic role, you may interact with other labs, internal and external to GSK, to support the training and transfer of analytical methods. Your primary focus will be on the laboratory development, qualification and transfer of analytical methods that employ such techniques as HPLC, cIEF, CGE, and UV. Although predominantly lab-based, the role also involves verbal and written communication and requires good organization as well as a broader scientific knowledge. Both individual and team working are required and therefore the role will suit a scientist with good interpersonal skills, self-motivation and an open mindset.

  • Must be able to work full-time (35-40 hours/week) throughout the 6 month co-op.
  • Must have an active student status and/or within 12 months post-graduation from a BS or MS degree program. Post-doctoral candidates are not eligible.
  • Basic understanding of analytical separations methods such as liquid chromatography, isoelectric focusing, and electrophoresis.

  • Sound understanding of the biopharmaceutical product development life cycle including analytical method qualification, validation, and transfer. 
  • Broad knowledge and experience in protein analytical & biochemical techniques such as HPLC, UPLC, capillary electrophoresis, spectroscopy, and other bioanalytical technologies. 
  • An understanding of protein biochemistry along with a knowledge of assay development/qualification/validation.
  • Pursuing a MS or PhD in analytical chemistry, chemistry, chemical engineering, or related field. 

  • Must successfully pass a drug screen and background check prior to assignment target start date.
  • Must provide your own funding for relocation and commuting.
  • If your skillsets are a match for this role, you will be contacted by our recruitment team with next steps to complete our internal World of GSK Assessment.
  • Please note, you must receive a passing score to move forward in the interview process. Once your assessment is complete, a recruiter will review your results and be in touch with next steps.
