Science & Research Summer Internships
Imagine being surrounded by a team of curious, driven and passionate problem solvers all working towards the same goal – improving lives by providing access to innovative healthcare solutions for people across the globe. You’ll get to experience a part of the pharmaceutical development process from new product development to product testing and release.
We believe that you can realise your potential when you’re empowered to solve problems and gain hands-on experience, when you’re coached by experts and when you’re surrounded by supportive team mates.
We also believe that carefully crafted recruitment collateral and catchy taglines can be compelling. But, let’s be honest, what you really want is the inside scoop from actual interns and graduates. We believe in transparency and want to give you a sneak peek into what it’s really like to be an intern at Douglas, this is the real deal.
Our internships run over the summer for 10 weeks, not including a three week shutdown for Christmas and New Year. Our internships are science based, which best suit final year science students.
You could gain experience in one of the following areas:
- New Product Development team doing formulation or analytical development.
- Quality team doing microbiology, HPLC or wet chemistry.
- Portfolio team supporting with product selection, data analysis and insights.
These internships give you an introduction to the labs, an understanding on how science teams work in the pharmaceutical sector and access to some of the greatest minds, projects and work out there.
