Amgen's 10 - 13-week internship program offers meaningful project experiences that impact patient's lives. This internship provides the opportunity for executive and social networking events and to participate in community volunteer projects while providing a competitive compensation.

Limited relocation housing and/or transportation allowance may be available for eligible candidates.

Amgen discovers, develops and delivers innovative human therapeutics. A biotechnology pioneer since 1980, Amgen was one of the first companies to realize the new science's promise by bringing safe, effective medicines from lab, to manufacturing plant, to patient. Amgen therapeutics have changed the practice of medicine, helping millions of people around the world in the fight against cancer, kidney disease, rheumatoid arthritis, and other serious illnesses. With a deep and broad pipeline of potential new medicines, Amgen remains committed to advancing science to dramatically improve people's lives.

Operations is one of the three foundational functions at Amgen with a mission to be consistent and efficient in delivering safe and effective medicines around the world. Operations manufactures and delivers Amgen therapeutics to our patients. Made up of five functions: Global Supply Chain, Process Development, Quality, Manufacturing, and Engineering, and spread across nine sites, Operations' aspiration is simple: Ensure patients have access to the Amgen products they need. Every patient, every time.

Process development (PD) is the department within Operations that takes molecules from Research & Development and turns them into products which can be manufactured for therapeutic use. With the support of her/his hiring manager, the PD intern will complete a lab-based project in one of the following areas: Drug Substance Technologies, Attribute Sciences, Development Supply Chain, Drug Product Technologies, or Final Product Technologies. The intern will be responsible for rigorously conducting and documenting their experiments as well as analyzing and interpreting data into meaningful, business-influencing outcomes, and then communicating this process to their team in a clear and compelling manner.

In conjunction with the project work, interns will have the opportunity for professional development through training sessions, an Executive Speaker Series, lab and facilities tours, one-on-one mentoring, and various networking events. Interns will also be able to interact with peers at Amgen-sponsored social events.

Example projects from previous internships:

Drug Substance Technology - Cell culture optimization through transcriptomics, media evaluation, and single-use bioreactor modification

Drug Substance Technology - Assaying cell line stability at the single-cell level using Berkeley Lights next-general nanofluidic technology
