Post Doc - High Throughput Mass Spectrometry

Boehringer Ingelheim

Biberach, Germany


At Boehringer Ingelheim we develop breakthrough therapies and innovative healthcare solutions in areas of unmet medical need for both humans and animals. As a family owned company, we focus on long-term performance. We believe that, if we have talented and ambitious people who are passionate about innovation, there is no limit to what we can achieve; after all, we started with just 28 people. Now, we are powered by 50,000 employees globally who nurture a diverse, collaborative and inclusive culture.


A lot to do despite Corona! Boehringer Ingelheim is still looking for new colleagues!

The main reason for failure of late stage drug development programs is lack of efficacy. One goal of our High Throughput Biology Group is the development of more physiologically relevant label-free assays which will lay the foundation already at the earliest stages of drug discovery for higher success rates of novel therapies.

With your strong expertise in mass spectrometry and biochemistry you drive the development of cutting-edge label-free assays and technologies for the screening and profiling of novel drug candidates.

If you are looking for a new professional challenge and want to leverage your scientific career and publication record in the field of pharma-orientated scientific projects, apply for a Post Doc position at our Research site in Biberach.

This position is limited for 2 years.

Note: To make it easier to find our job advertisements, we use the usual designation "Post Doc". Of course, this advertisement is not only addressed to applicants directly after completing their doctorate, but to all qualified candidates.
