Danaher Corporation Junior Lab Technician - Chemical Processing (late shift) in Leuven, Belgium
We are currently looking for a Junior Lab Technician to join IDT’s labs at our European facility in Heverlee during the late shift (1pm-10pm). You will become part of our Chemical Processing department which is the heart of our production site upon which all fellow lab colleagues rely to start making IDT’s oligos.
As a Junior Lab Technician you and your colleagues are mainly responsible for ensuring all chemical reagent requests are executed, whether they are in larger tanks requiring the use of a bulk chemical dispensing system or in smaller amounts requiring manual mixing and/or filtering. You will also be responsible for the quality control on both raw incoming materials as on the in-house mixtures and formulations including, but not limited to, water content, identification, concentration and pH measurements. Every day consists of a variety of tasks and gives you the opportunity to plan your work the way it’s most efficient for yourself and the team.
Ideally we are looking for a candidate with a Bachelor’s degree in a science related field, preferably chemistry related. Since working with chemicals implies a high attention to safety and procedures, those two things are very important assets for this job. Being focused, having an eye for detail, being someone others can rely upon are also crucial in this role.
Are you totally into chemistry? Are you only a risk taker outside the labs? Have you got good computer skills? Then you might be the candidate we are looking for.
