The BioPharmaceutical Development (BPD) department at AstraZeneca, which focuses on creating novel products that fight disease and transform quality of life, has a two-year Rotational Associate Program (RAP) that consists of three eight-month rotational assignments across various BPD functions.
The program 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 Characterization, Formulation, Delivery Devices, Clinical Logistics and Manufacturing. The program 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.
AstraZeneca is 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.
AstraZeneca will be accepting applications for a start in 2023 beginning July 19th. Applications for the program will close in the US on September 18th.
