Are you a passionate scientist, eager to join a company at the forefront of sample management technologies? Would you like to contribute to the continuous improvement of life-changing projects? Perfect, we have a new challenge for you!

We are looking for a motivated and engaged team member for our Compound Management team to join us as a Research Scientist at our vibrant R&D site at AstraZeneca in Gothenburg, Sweden.

In this role you will be responsible for the storage and timely supply of chemical compounds to AstraZeneca's drug discovery projects. Highly automated liquid handling systems will be employed to supply molecules to AstraZeneca scientists and partner organisations. You will be a part of the Discovery Sciences organisation, operating within a first-class scientific environment to support drug discovery across each of AstraZeneca's Therapeutic Areas.

This is a chance to thrive in a place where the brightest and most curious minds seamlessly come together in our inclusive environment.

What you will do:

In this position, you will get the opportunity to work in a dynamic and enthusiastic environment, whilst delivering critical support to all phases of drug discovery projects and working with a broad

range of chemical modalities. You will be supporting projects by providing compounds in the requested format - assay ready plates, serially diluted mother plates, formulations and solids. Bringing in new capabilities and building new processes are core activities within our group, performed in a cross-functional collaboration setting with the drug discovery projects.

You are expected to act upon day-to-day issues that occur whilst processing samples and run Compound Management development projects to ensure continuous improvement within the local team and the global department.

Examples of typical tasks are:


Designing, performing and interpreting experiments independently to investigate process improvements and evaluate new technologies.

Working closely with internal project teams to meet drug discovery needs.

Rapidly addressing customer queries with regards to Compound Management orders, software, processes and capabilities.

Achieving personal scientific visibility through project contributions, internal presentations and publications.

We work collaboratively within our Compound Management team to understand the customer needs and how to add value through our experience and capabilities. To maintain this position and provide support within agreed service levels, we actively seek ways to improve our process and exploit new technologies.

Essential for the role:

Compound Management is a highly collaborative group, working with tight delivery schedules - so the ability to be comfortable working at a fast, goal-oriented pace, with a team-focused attitude, is essential to being successful in the role. Furthermore, you have excellent communication skills with a proactive delivery and customer-focused approach.

We also believe that you have:


A BSc/MSc in Chemistry/Biotechnology/Chemical engineering, with relevant experience.

Excellent problem-solving skills and ability to identify and implement improvement activities.

A track record in the performance of a range of practical skills, including non-routine complex tasks, to a high level.

We also believe that our new colleague shares our passion for science, technology and innovation and has an understanding of the drug discovery process. Previous experience of working in a compound management role and operating integrated automation equipment like liquid handlers and scheduling software is beneficial but not required. Some experience with IT (SQL/Python/Java coding) is an advantage but not a requirement.

Why AstraZeneca?
Here we are committed to making a difference. We have built our business around our passion for science. Now we are fusing data and technology with the latest scientific innovations to

achieve the next wave of breakthroughs.

So, what's next? If your passion is science and want to be a part of a team that makes a bigger impact on patient's lives, then there is no better place to be.

We look forward to getting to know you and invite you to submit your application as soon as possible but no later than the 10th of December 2023. Applications will be reviewed continuously.
