About the role:

The intern will learn the challenges of single use and ancillary component integration into cell therapy GMP manufacturing process.

  • The drug product group currently has qualified third party vendors to accomplish the characterization as well as in-house capabilities but require person with strong interpersonal and communication skills for vendor interactions as well as the ability to think out side the box to vet a new manufacturing ancillary component addressing current and future risk-to-patient concerns.
  • Other duties as assigned

Position Requirements & Experience:

  • Enrollment in an academic institute to attain BS/MS in Material Sciences or related field required (or relevant experience)
  • 0-2+ years of experience in similar role in biotechnology industry
