Trusted for generations, we are a CDMO partner for life. Here at FUJIFILM Diosynth Biotechnologies (FDB), passion – what we call Genki – lives inside everything we do. This is your opportunity to push the boundaries of your potential to impact where we know it matters most: human lives.

Whilst working in the Process Development team, we want you to embrace your individuality, discover your purpose, and follow what energizes, fulfills, and inspires you every day.

Every year in the UK, we recruit undergraduate degree students on sandwich degree courses for a 13 month work experience placement. The scheme provides paid placements in our Process Development department within FUJIFILM Diosynth Biotechnologies, Billingham, UK.

This is a fantastic opportunity to gain an insight into the operation of an international biopharmaceutical CMO. Working alongside experienced scientists you will advance your own academic knowledge and technical skills.

During the 13 month placement you will gain first-hand experience of science and technology, including development of personal skills and putting your academic theory into practice. You will be an integral member of a lab or manufacturing based project team with work focused on the development, evaluation and characterisation of biopharmaceutical purification processes required for the production of novel therapeutic proteins. This invaluable experience will build your technical knowledge, as well as developing your skills in planning, organisation, communication, team working and problem solving.
