What we ask

We are looking for an enthusiastic technician iPSC who holds a bachelor’s degree in Laboratory Studies and who has some years of experience with culturing induced pluripotent stem cells and executing differentiation protocols. Preferably, you have experience or affinity with working within quality systems. You work accurately, are independent, function well within a team and possess solid communication skills. You are also acquainted with generating SOPs. If you fit the description, we look forward to receiving your application!

What you do

As a technician iPSC, you will be actively involved in the development and production of cellular therapies. You will initially be trained by a group of experienced GMP colleagues within the LUMC for working with cell therapy products. You will start together with a technician GMP with whom you will work closely together and share knowledge in the area of iPSC and GMP. You will be trained in the iPSC facility to work with induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs). In addition, you will be part of the NECSTGEN team that focuses on setting up the new GMP facility. After approximately one year, you will start working at the new facility of NECSTGEN.

In short

  • Within NECSTGEN, you will contribute to the production of new medicines in the GMP facility for the advancement of clinical research

  • You will set up and optimize methods for generating cell and gene therapy products

  • You will train colleagues in working with cells according to iPSC standards

  • You will produce cell and gene therapy products for clinical studies


NECSTGEN spun out of the Leiden University Medical Center (LUMC) by recognizing the benefits of curative therapies for society and the needs of early-stage research organizations and start-ups to efficiently develop cell and gene therapy. In a purpose-built facility located on the largest bio-cluster in the Netherlands, Leiden Bio Science Park (LBSP), NECSTGEN additionally offers process development solutions, regulatory and business development support. NECSTGEN is not a regular CDMO but a non-profit initiative aimed at delivering more therapies to patients by the translation of research and early-stage clinical programs into viable commercial products. NECSTGEN helps early stage research organizations and start-ups to enter the clinical stage by bringing together the required expertise from R&D, development, production, QA and regulatory affairs in a non-profit GMP production facility. Our current team consists of professionals from industry and academia with an entrepreneurial mindset. We are a flat organization with a participative management style.

Your position

We are about to start building The Netherlands Center for the Clinical advancement of Stem Cell and Gene Therapies (NECSTGEN), a state-of-the-art GMP production facility accelerating groundbreaking cell and gene therapies to the clinic. We are now looking for an experienced technician iPSC stem cell therapy. Are you a technician with experience in working with induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) and an interest in working in a GMP environment? Are you interested in specializing in cell and gene therapy and being at the starting point of the new GMP facility NECSTGEN? Then we would like to get in touch with you!
