A day in Automation

In order to ensure the supply of biopharmaceutical products for our patients, we are building a new innovative biopharmaceutical manufacturing facility at Teva's Ulm site called the Genesis Project. Our interdisciplinary team has successfully completed the detailed design of the highly automated, high-volume facility and we are now making great strides towards commissioning/qualification, technology transfer and ultimately productive use of the facility.


In your new role as Computer System Validation (CSV) Specialist (m/f/d) for Automation youwill support our automation team in the qualification and validation of the process control system as well as the other automation systems used to control and monitor the production process in the new building.


During the project phase, you will accompany the planning and concept adaptation for the validation of our process control system as well as other automation systems. Interfaces to various systems must also be considered and validated. The valid laws, guidelines and current regulatory requirements in the cGMP environment must be taken into account. This includes the independent review of cGMP-relevant documents and also the creation of documents, concepts and processes for the validation and qualification of the entire plant. This also includes coordination with the adjacent departments and coordination of tasks and responsibilities as well as the control of external supporting service providers.


During routine operations, you will be responsible for the validity of the automation systems together with your colleagues and will be in close contact with our Quality Assurance and all other involved departments. As an employee in the Genesis project, you will have the opportunity to work in a highly motivated, multidisciplinary team and actively help shape our processes.
