Deeltijd Volledige dag
Den Haag
Are you a driven Laboratory Expert with a passion for designing safe, sustainable and efficient laboratories and clean rooms? Do you also know how to easily translate complex technology to our customers? Then who knows, you might be our new lab specialist for the Life Sciences unit!

The challenge

As a Laboratory Advisor, you translate user requirements into practical designs and take into account user processes and safety regulations. You are the face of the consulting team and work closely with users, multidisciplinary experts and external partners. This role requires a combination of technical expertise, creativity and communication skills. You will be on the road a lot, working independently and in direct contact with clients, including universities, research institutes and companies in the Life Sciences sector.

Your Duties At a Glance

  • Drafting laboratory recommendations in which logistics, safety and flexibility play a central role.
  • Designing and configuring the laboratories based on detailed analyses of the technical and functional requirements.
  • Tender preparation of the fixed laboratory equipment and assessment of the bid budgets
  • Perform technical feasibility studies, risk analyses and cost estimates.
  • Coordinate the implementation of laboratory systems, including managing project schedules, directing suppliers and subcontractors, and monitoring progress.
  • Perform testing, quality control and validation to ensure laboratory systems meet applicable standards and safety regulations.
  • Provide technical support to customers and operations personnel, including training and documentation.

Here's where

  • We worked to expand clean room capacity for Fresenius Medical Care to produce more life-saving dialysis equipment. The capacity could only be expanded by creating a second clean room on another floor of the building. Deerns therefore designed a clean elevator system for Fresenius Medical Care that seamlessly connects the existing clean room to the new clean room. This created a streamlined production process, minimizing the risk of contamination to ensure the quality of the equipment.
  • We worked on the development of the new, sustainable DSM Lab 6 in Delft where Deerns handled all technical installations, electrical systems, IT infrastructure, security, mechanical systems, HVAC (heating, ventilation and air conditioning), transportation and utility systems. Technical and financial feasibility were also thoroughly checked during the design phase. Based on the incidence of sunlight in the building, the energy performance requirements and the strict requirements for indoor temperature, Deerns designed a façade that is 25% closed. This ensures a naturally cool indoor climate, saving energy on heating, ventilation and air conditioning systems.

This is you

  • You are the expert in laboratory design or have extensive experience in a similar position within the Life Sciences sector.
  • You have at least a completed Bachelor's degree (Hbo/ Wo) in a relevant technical discipline such as Mechanical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Chemical Engineering, Engineering Physics or equivalent.
  • You have knowledge of laboratory technologies, equipment and regulations.
  • You are a good listener, think along and are able, together with your team, to transform the customer demand into a realistic, innovative design.
  • You have excellent knowledge of the Dutch and English language (both written and spoken).
  • Finally, you have excellent communication skills and the ability to actively build your network.

We offer

  • A position of 32-40 hours per week with a salary to match.
  • Challenging projects for leading clients in the Netherlands and internationally.
  • A work environment in which innovation and sustainability are put into practice on a daily basis.
  • Attention to your own development and vitality with ample training and development opportunities, bicycle and sports arrangements, flexible working hours, 33 vacation days and the possibility of purchasing additional days.
  • Hybrid working, where you have the opportunity to alternate between working from home and the office.
  • A team where cooperation and collegiality are priority, and where we interact informally.
  • Sustainability is in our genes. This is expressed, for example, in a mobility policy where health and sustainability are most important. Many of our offices are located near public transport hubs, cycling is encouraged and your travel expenses are reimbursed 100% on the basis of public transport.
