The EDQM / European Pharmacopoeia Department (EPD) is recruiting a Scientific Programme Manager.
EPD Scientific Programme Managers are responsible for managing assigned Groups of Experts/Working Parties and their related work programmes and for co-ordinating the work involved in developing monographs for adoption by the European Pharmacopoeia (Ph. Eur.) Commission.
The European Pharmacopoeia is recognised as Europe’s legal and scientific benchmark for pharmacopoeial standards and is known to deliver crucial information earlier than any other pharmacopoeia. Applicable in 38 European countries and used in over 100 countries worldwide, these standards are instrumental in ensuring that the quality of medicines received by patients in Europe and beyond remains consistently high. European Pharmacopoeia texts are elaborated and revised by Groups of Experts and Working Parties and adopted by the Ph. Eur. Commission which is the Pharmacopoeia's decision-making body. While many of these experts work for a national authority (national pharmacopoeia authority, official medicines control laboratory, licensing authorities, inspectorates, etc.), others work in the private sector (pharmaceutical or chemical industry), academia or for a research organisation. In total, 700 experts from all around the world contribute to the success of the Ph. Eur. So don’t miss out on this opportunity!
