AstraZeneca Bio Pharmaceutical Development Rotational Associates Program

BioPharmaceutical Development (BPD) department at AstraZeneca.

The BPD department, which focuses on creating novel products that fight disease and transform quality of life, has a two-year Rotational Associate Programme that consists of three eight-month rotational assignments across various BPD functions.

The programme enables recent graduates to make a difference by working on challenging technical projects supporting the development of protein therapeutics in the areas of Cell Culture and Fermentation, Purification, Analytics and Protein Characterisation, Formulation, Delivery Devices, Clinical Logistics and Manufacturing.

The programme is designed to equip participants with an understanding of each BPD function’s role in the drug development process, enable them to grow professionally and ensures a full-time position in BPD at the end of all three rotations.

We are looking for scientists with a focus on biology, chemistry, biochemistry, engineering or related discipline (Bachelors and/or Master graduates with 0-2 years prior work experience).

Individuals should have strong academic performance, strong technical and lab skills, be critical thinkers, have good communication skills and a collaborative working style.

Candidates should have a passion for science and a strong interest in a career in drug development.

Applications for the program will close in the US on September 30th and in the UK October 11th.
