About Octapharma Octapharma Biopharmaceuticals GmbH a subsidiary of the Octapharma group founded in 1997 is a successful and expanding biotech company in Heidelberg. Our core business is the development of recombinant proteins produced in human cell lines for therapeutic use in humans. We strive for effective treatments with an improved tolerability and convenience for the patient. We are looking for: A Scientist (m/f/d) to join our R&D Analytics group at our site in Heidelberg. As a member of a young, highly motivated team of biologists and biotechnologists, you will accompany the development of new, protein-based drugs from early identification to late development phases. The Analytics group is involved in the quantification of a broad range of biomolecules as well as the biochemical characterization of a variety of innovative, recombinant product candidates. Among others, ELISA-based methods, immunoassays, cell-based assays as well as activity assays are applied. By performing routine analyses as well as developing and automating new measurement methods our team supports a network of research groups in the identification and characterization of drug candidates in the field of hematology and immunology. Interdisciplinary interactions with other R&D as well as GMP groups are a matter of course for us. We are aiming for recruitment at the next possible date.
