As Senior Drug Substance Specialist at MinervaX, you will play a central role in the technology transfer and upscaling processes for MinervaX’s prophylactic vaccine targeting Group B Streptococcus (GBS).
Your main responsibilities include:
Your qualifications include at least three years of experience in the pharmaceutical and/or biotechnology industry, you’ve played a pivotal role in the development and/or manufacturing of microbial upstream and downstream processes for proteins. Your expertise extends to GMP manufacturing, covering tech-transfer and process validation, and you highly value hands-on manufacturing experience in your professional background.

MinervaX is a Danish biotechnology company, established in 2010 to develop a prophylactic vaccine against Group B Streptococcus (GBS), based on research from Lund University. MinervaX is developing a GBS vaccine for maternal immunization, likely to have superior characteristics compared with other GBS vaccine candidates in development. The latter are based on traditional capsular polysaccharide (CPS) conjugate technology. By contrast, MinervaX’s vaccine is a protein-only vaccine based on fusions of highly immunogenic and protective protein domains from selected surface proteins of GBS (the Alpha-like protein family). Given the broad distribution of proteins contained in the vaccine on GBS strains globally, it is expected that MinervaX’s vaccine will confer protection against virtually 100% of all GBS isolates.
Domicile: Commuting distance from the MinervaX office in Copenhagen.
