In your daily work you will challenge and approve documents in connection with development, manufacture, stability and status assignment of clinical batches produced in CMC and PS. In addition, you will be a part of our development projects ensuring our products used in clinical trials are following the information provided to Health Authorities worldwide. Furthermore, you will - in close cooperation with your colleagues - identify and contribute to strengthening our production facilities compliance level and act as a consultant for them.


You will primarily be working in Måløv and must expect several traveling days as we are outsourcing more and more of our clinical batch productions to different international Contract Manufacturing Organisations (CMO).

You hold a MSc in Pharmacy, Engineering, Biology, Chemistry or similar. You have 7+ years of experience with GMP and quality assurance - preferably within batch release/status assignment.

You have a profound understanding of the important aspects of regulations, requirements and guidelines for pharmaceutical development and production and hence can navigate without adding complexity.
