Caring for the world, one person at a time, inspires and unites the people of Johnson & Johnson. We embrace innovation - bringing ideas, products and services to life to advance the health and well-being of people around the world. We believe in collaboration which has led to breakthrough after breakthrough, from medical miracles that have changed lives, to the simple consumer products that make every day a little better. Our over 125,000 employees in 60 countries are united in a common mission: To help people everywhere live longer, healthier, happier lives.

Global Safety Pharmacology is an expert center that supports our therapeutic areas across the globe with advice, safety testing and research from discovery, through clinical development and up to marketed product. The lab focuses on the safety pharmacology assessment of new chemical entities on vital organ systems, such as the heart, lungs and brain.
In the department of Global Safety Pharmacology, we currently have an internship position for one (m/f):


At Janssen research & development various in-vitro (e.g. stem cell assay, isolated tissue, in-vitro tox) and in-vivo (small and large animals tox and safety) non-clinical experimental models are important for discovery de-risking and early development project support. We have wealth of (historical) knowledge and expertise in developing and characterizing these experimental models.
Currently there are paper SOP available which describe the procedure how to set up, perform and analyze these experiments. When a new person would like to learn these experimental techniques, they must read paper SOP to learn and get some hands-on training from an experienced person. However, the whole process could be made much more efficient. Within this project we would like to develop a platform where all in-vitro and in-vivo models could be recorded as an interactive video SOP, which would help new researchers to learn these scientific models in a more practical and time efficient manner. This approach would also preserve the wealth of knowledge and expertise available in Non-Clinical Safety organization.
