The short version is that Batavia helps to optimize the route from drug discovery to clinic.

The reality is that we do much more than that: by leveraging the combination of our expert workforce, our broad, international academic and public network and our extensive range of high-end services, we design the optimal route for our customers to reach the one person that we all are 100% committed to: the patient.

To help us take biopharmaceutical development to the next level, we would love to welcome you as our new Project Manager.

Also technology development projects in collaboration with non-for-profit organizations such as the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation are in scope. The Project Manager interprets the client’s needs and collaborates with the Batavia Subject Matter Experts to translate this into plans that are scientifically and financially sound, with timelines that are agreed between client and Batavia.

To be successful as a Project Manager it is important that you are knowledgeable, an excellent communicator, pragmatic and punctual in a hands-on approach. In this challenging and rewarding position you are in the heart of our business, dealing with all layers of the organization.
