Bioanalytical Internship Overview (position 2219127) The Bioanalytical Intern will help characterize the proteome of various ocular fluids and tissues from humans and animals to better understand the expression level of ocular hydrolytic enzymes. The results will help understand (i) pro-drug metabolism and polymer biodegradation in the eye, (ii) interspecies differences, and differences between healthy and diseased eyes, and (iii)improve the translation of non-clinical studies. To gain additional insight into the role of these enzymes, the intern may also conduct in vitro studies that investigate metabolism of various drugs and biodegradable polymers. Key responsibilities include: Develop and apply state-of-the-art analytical tools including liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry (LC-MS/MS) systems in an industrial pharmaceutical R&D setting Have a basic understanding of LC/MS quantitation and proteomics workflows. Contribute to developing and characterizing novel in vitro models relevant to ocular drug development Assist in designing and executing experiments Analyze and interpret data Present data/results to department and/or project teams Minimum Qualifications Currently enrolled in university, pursuing a Bachelor’s, Master’s, or PhD degree in Chemistry, Biology, Biochemistry, Pharmaceutical Sciences or other related fields. Must be enrolled in university during the internship period Experience performing hands-on laboratory work Eagerness to learn in collaborative, fast paced environment Preferred Qualifications Experience with bioanalytical tools and software used in proteomics and protein analysis Benefits and Amenities Competitive pay Opportunity to connect with AbbVie leaders and scientists Exposure to Allergan Aesthetics portfolio and Medical Device Design control Equal Employment Opportunity At AbbVie, we value bringing together individuals from diverse backgrounds to develop new and innovative solutions for patients.
