Internship - Research & Development in Bornem
Today Lonza is a global leader in life sciences. We are more than 15,000 employees in more than 100 locations around the world. While we work in science, there’s no magic formula to how we do it. Our greatest scientific solution is talented people working together, devising ideas that help businesses to help people. In exchange, we let our people own their careers. Their ideas, big and small, genuinely improve the world. And that’s the kind of work we want to be part of.
In Bornem, hard gelatin capsules for the biopharmaceutical and consumer health and food industries are designed, developed and produced. The unique combination of science, engineering and capsule expertise enables customers to optimize their biopharmaceutical and consumer health & nutrition products. Also filling and sealing machines are sold to global customers and technical services are offered. The technological R&D center for the Lonza capsule trade worldwide is also based in Bornem.
We are currently looking for an intern to join our R&D department. The R&D Engineering department develops state-of-the-art equipment that is used internally to support the full process cycle of the Hard Capsule manufacturing business in view of improving the productivity and/or quality and creating new capabilities. They are also active in developing equipment to process capsules into finished products in support of our own CDMO activities and/or for external customers and to support other non-capsule related Lonza operations.
The duration and timing of this internship is flexible based on the needs of the candidate’s university schedule.
