Are you looking for the next step to kick-start your transition from an early career in clinical practice to become a young professional in a leading pharmaceutical company that is entirely dedicated to Central Nervous System (CNS) disorders? Then we have the Graduate Programme for you.

As part of your two-year graduate journey at Lundbeck you will be exposed to various parts of the business and encounter many exciting challenges. The learning curve will be steep and we expect a lot from you, but in return we offer a programme that will empower you to grow on a professional and personal level.

Clinical Development at Lundbeck
Clinical Development is responsible for planning, conducting and the evaluation of clinical studies. Our therapy areas consist of Psychiatry and Neurology. The position is based within the Neurology Clinical Development Group at Lundbeck’s Headquarters in Valby, Copenhagen.

Your job and the journey
We are searching for a graduate who can support Clinical Development mainly on translational aspects of clinical development plans focusing on integration of imaging biomarkers, while developing professional and personal skills and expertise for a career in drug development.

You will participate in clinical study teams and be interacting with multi-disciplinary project groups and work in close collaboration with partners in Research, Clinical and Quantitative Pharmacology, Biostatistics, Bioinformatics, and Clinical Study Management.

For you to learn as much as possible about drug development, the Graduate Programme includes periods of job rotation to other relevant areas in Lundbeck, including Research, as well as the potential option of a short research stay at an external facility.

During the programme, you will also participate in a wide range of development activities on your own as well as with other graduates across the entire value chain – everything designed to guide you through the programme, making sure you are on track and able to unfold your potential.

The position may include travel activities.
