Job Details

At Genmab, we’re committed to building extra[not]ordinary futures together, by developing antibody products and pioneering, knock-your-socks-off therapies that change the lives of patients and the future of cancer treatment and serious diseases. From our people who are caring, candid, and impact-driven to our business, which is innovative and rooted in science, we believe that being proudly unique, determined to be our best, and authentic is essential to fulfilling our purpose.


The Department 


The Bioanalytical Science team is responsible for developing fit-for-purpose bioanalytical strategies to quantify drug in circulation and assess unwanted immunogenicity. We are experts in the design, development, validation, execution and interpretation of bioanalytical methods, with a focus on pharmacokinetics/pharmacodynamics (PK/PD), anti-drug antibodies (ADA), and neutralizing antibodies (NAb). We perform bioanalysis activities for both regulated (GLP, GCP) and non-regulated (mouse studies, exploratory tox & Dose Range Finding) studies. As such, we provide a strong foundation for informed decision-making at critical points throughout our entire drug development program.  


The Role 


The GLP/GCP-compliant Bioanalytical Science core facility is located at the Genmab Research & Development Center in Utrecht, the Netherlands. Last year, we have expanded our bioanalytical capabilities to our site in Princeton, US. We are currently looking for 2 all-round Research Associates to complement our excellent US-based team. These roles present not only an exciting opportunity to provide scientific support to the development of Genmab’s formats and compounds, but also to be hands-on involved in further implementing our bioanalytical laboratory in Princeton.


Are you experienced in ligand binding, cell-based and/or flow cytometry methods for the analysis of large molecules with an affinity for coordinating laboratory processes? Then we are looking for you! 


As a Senior or Principal Research Associate within the Bioanalytical Science team, you work together with the Scientific Lead to develop, qualify and execute immunoassays to support (pre-)clinical sample assessment for product development enabling registration of new therapeutic products.
