The Amgen Postdoctoral Program is committed to providing future scientists 
with an enriched environment to inspire innovation that will contribute to the 
development of human therapeutics. 

In this role the candidate will work as part of Amgen Process Development’s 
Next-Generation Automation Group, based at our corporate headquarters in 
Thousand Oaks, California.
The NGA team is tasked with developing new manufacturing technologies. This 
project relates specifically to automated visual inspection, with particular 
focus on the fluid dynamics and optomechanical handling our products 
experience during this part of the manufacturing process. 

The successful candidate will use contemporary computer modelling packages to 
simulate the physical forces and conditions our products experience during 
automated inspection – a key stage of the manufacturing process. These models 
will then be evaluated against home-grown, lab-based test systems. The 
expectation is that a first-principles, science-based approach will lead to 
insights and improvements that we can then work to scale-up and deploy into 

The NGA group is a diverse, multi-disciplinary team made up of mechanical and 
electrical engineers, chemical engineers, physicists, computer scientists and 
manufacturing experts. The candidate will have the full support of the team in 
developing and realizing their experiments. The candidate will have ample 
opportunity to learn about our industry and add to their portfolio of skills. 

During the course of this project it is expected that the candidate will 
develop working relationships with other relevant teams throughout the 

It is also expected that over the course of this position the candidate will 
contribute both to peer-reviewed scientific publications and Amgen’s portfolio 
of intellectual property. 

This postdoctoral assignment is intended to last for 2 years, with the 
possibility to extend for a third year.
