The obesity research team is working to develop a diverse pipeline of anti-obesity medications to ensure patients have access to effective treatments. We are working in close collaboration with our key stakeholders globally (obesity research in Seattle) as well as locally (e.g. formulation, bioanalysis, histology, chemistry). In our daily work we are responsible for establishing and progressing the early obesity treatment pipeline by delivering high quality in vitro and in vivo support to new target ideas and established projects.
You will support scientists and technicians with practicalities in relation to planning, preparation and execution of experiments in support of our obesity research projects. The Danish obesity function consists of an in vivo and an in vitro department. Your position within the function will be heavily focused on practical work assisting with standardized procedures in the lab, while getting a chance to learn more about obesity and drug discovery. You willalso be part of the scientific discussions. Depending on your qualifications you will perform hands on in vitro and in vivo lab work with everything from cells to mice to pigs.
We are looking for an intern with a passion for biology, pharmacology and drug discovery. You have completed an experimental animal course and preferably you have experience in working with animals. Preference will be shown to applicants studying for a master’s degree in science, veterinarian science, biomedicine or related fields. We expect you to master English fluently, verbally as well as in writing, and that you can handle a large number of projects (with supervision) and are willing to learn and adapt in a fast-paced research environment.
As a person, you are outgoing with a strong personal drive and dedication. Your strong interpersonal skills assist you in creating trustful relations within the function as well as out in the organization and you bring a healthy sense of humor to your work – even when the pressure is on.
