For the Ardena Business Unit based in Amsterdam, specialized in solid-state of pharmaceuticals we are looking for an Intern to develop an analytical method


The aim of this internship is to do the method development on a new UPLC-CAD. It concerns setting up an assay for quantifying counterions of pharmaceutical salts (small molecules). The main challenge lies in setting up a robust method that is still accurate enough to determine the stoichiometry of the salt while a limited amount of material (milligrams) is available. It is a very analytically oriented internship in the pharmaceutical industry for which working accurately is very important.
