Graduate Process Engineer

Are you a recently graduated, motivated chemical engineer with an inquisitive nature and a passion for working in the laboratory? If so, this role could be for you!

We are currently recruiting a Chemical Engineering graduate to join our Drug Substance Development (DSD) team at GSK Stevenage R&D site. We are considering applicants at graduate level to develop as a process engineer. As a member of DSD, you will use your engineering knowledge coupled with training and mentoring, to develop and deploy state-of-art processes and technology to enable the delivery of GSK medicines.

This is a practical role where you will be working in the R&D laboratories alongside chemists and material scientists to generate process understanding that underpins the successful scale-up and commercial industrialisation of GSK’s future manufacturing processes for small molecules. Your focus will be to combine Digital Data and Analytics (DDA) information generated in laboratory studies with your strong knowledge of engineering principles and processes (including simulation/modelling) to develop robust, scalable, sustainable pharmaceutical manufacturing processes. As processes transfer to pilot plant facilities (to support clinical trial delivery) or to manufacturing facilities (as part of commercialisation), you will be required to provide support as the engineering technical expert at these facilities globally.

GSK Stevenage R&D site accommodates over 2,000 R&D staff, this hub of scientists inspires a culture of innovation and collaboration. Additionally, GSK R&D is IChemE ACTS Accredited, and the Engineering group sponsors and supports chemical engineers to achieve the Chartered Chemical Engineering diploma. GSK Stevenage R&D site benefits from excellent facilities and easy access.

In this role you will

  • Design and perform scale up/down experiments in chemical engineering unit operations to develop understanding against fast paced project timelines

  • Think creatively to optimise engineering solutions and de-risk scale-up processes.

  • Ensure that experimental work is communicated effectively at internal R&D meetings.

  • Participate in technology transfer activities as appropriate to GSK manufacturing partners.

  • Author or contribute to internal documentation relevant to the role.

  • Comply with applicable Data Integrity, Quality, cGMP (current Good Manufacturing Practice) and regulatory requirements in all aspects of work.

  • Fully embrace all aspects of safety when working in the laboratory.

Why you?

Qualifications & Skills:

We are looking for professionals with these required skills to achieve our goals:

  • Degree (or equivalent) in Chemical Engineering or expected to achieve a Degree in Chemical Engineering in 2023

  • Keen, interested in developing practical process engineering experience.

Preferred Qualifications & Skills:

If you have the following characteristics (perhaps obtained as part of an industrial placement programme), it would be a plus:

  • Previous experience working in a multi-functional team

  • Direct laboratory experience in the pharmaceutical industry, or related sector.

  • Practical familiarity with process simulation/modelling techniques such as MATLAB, DynoChem and gPROMS.
