Who are we looking for?

  • Master degree in life sciences (e.g. industrial pharmacist, biomedical sciences, bio-engineer, …) or equivalent through experience
  • 10+ experience in regulatory affairs in life sciences (knowledge of ISO 13485 is a plus) and with sterile production processes (in line with GMP Annex 1)

  • You are result oriented, motivated and good at coordinating multiple projects and following up with internal/external stakeholders
  • And finally, if the words accurate, driven, flexible and organized cover your personality, you are the perfect regulatory affairs (RA) lead.
