Working at Galapagos

Galapagos offers you a dynamic, open minded, fast and exciting work environment. We work with the best scientists, who like adventurers explore uncharted territories. At the same time, we operate like a Switch watch; well-organized, punctual and with high integrity. The core of our business is based in trusting our unique target discovery technology and our scientists, in empowering our people to go where no one has gone before: to discover and develop novel molecules that have the potential to be of benefit for so many people.

At our site in Leiden, we use our target discovery platform to identify new ways of treating diseases, based on in vitro human disease models. Our analysts and scientists are bachelors, masters or doctors in cell biology, medical biology, molecular biology and bioinformatics. At the Mechelen site, we cover both research and development aspects of drug discovery. Here you will find masters and doctors of (medicinal) chemistry, bachelors, masters and doctors in biomedical sciences, bio-engineering and masters in pharmaceutical sciences. At the Romainville site, located at Biocitech Park close to Paris, we cover mostly drug discovery including medicinal chemistry, protein sciences, pharmacology, translational sciences, DMPK and histology. We have a group dedicated to compound management for the whole company and we are also working on some  preclinical development activities.

We regularly have at all three sites internships or jobs available for new or recent graduates in the above mentioned studies. In addition to the vacancies listed on the Current Openings page, we encourage speculative applications from highly skilled and enthusiastic people. Please send your CV and covering letter to the appropriate email address below.
