Learn why Mercurna is the place to be for you
Working at Mercurna
.. to do great science and improve human health
Are you a passionate scientist with a desire to build life-changing medicines? Do you have innovative ideas about targeted medicines, therapeutic mRNA or novel disease targets? Do you want to explore the vast opportunities of a new type of medicine?
Then Mercurna might be the place to be for you!
The modular nature of the nanoparticle drugs that we are building at Mercurna allows you to test innovative therapeutic concepts quickly and explore new molecular targets, without the need to re-design or re-test other parts of the system. The research engine that we are setting up supports short timelines and rapid innovation cycles.
Our flat organization allows you to take the lead in your project and affords ample opportunities to develop your career within our rapidly growing company. Because we strongly believe in the value of cross-disciplinary involvement during the entire drug-development cycle, you have the opportunity to manage your pet-project from bench to bedside.
Join us, in our pursuit of the next life-changing medicine!
Learning at Mercurna
.. about science, entrepreneurship and drug development
Do you want to learn more about nanomedicine? Do you want to learn how to develop new drugs? Are you curious about the newest techniques being used to develop life-changing medicines? Are you wondering about the differences between academia and industry? Are you considering starting your own science-based company in the future?
Then, Mercurna might be a good place for you to learn!
As science-based company, we are striving to develop the best medicines known to man. Therefore, we continuously look for and work with the latest technologies and state-of-the-art knowledge in nanomedicine. Through your own project and our weekly meetings, you will learn all about this.
As being a small company, our inner-workings are quite visible and our decision process democratic. Doing your internship at Mercurna, you will be submerged in the pharma-business scene and see many different roles and positions in action. A good opportunity for you to think about your own career.
Join Mercurna for your MSc internship and learn about science, entrepreneurship and drug development from a dynamic, young and approachable team.

Internship opportunities for a MSc student
Your daily activities will include designing new mRNA sequences, cloning those novel sequences, in vitro transcription and purification of mRNA, transfection into mammalian cells and read-out of protein expression by specialized assay (e.g. luciferase assay), western blot, microscopy and/or flowcytometry.Your results will contribute to the development of new mRNA-based drugs, with even higher potency. A higher protein production per delivered mRNA means lower doses can be used, which in turn reduce the cost of medicine and reduce the chance of side-effects.
