Chemical lab technician

You have a keen interest in chemistry, biology and maths? You are inquisitive and like to get to the bottom of things? You like experiments and can work with care and remain highly focused? Then undertaking training with us is exactly right for you.

As a Chemical Laboratory Assistant (m/f) you will apply a wide range of analytical methods to test the quality of raw and auxiliary materials. In the diverse research, development and analysis activities at Biotest you will work with substances for life-saving medicines. You will research new or existing active ingredients to ensure that high quality standards are maintained.

You will perform immunological, biochemical and microbiological assignments and be responsible for research and development projects in producing pharmaceuticals. Furthermore, you will carry out analytical investigations into the drug manufacturing process under our quality control. You will be utilising modern computer technology.

Our Chemical Laboratory Assistants (m/f) are trained in cooperation with Ferro GmbH in Frankfurt. Your technical college is the Paul-Ehrlich College in Frankfurt-Höchst. Attendance at the school is organised in block sessions: Two-week school blocks alternate with four-week practical phases.


Training starts on the 23. August 2021 and lasts 3 ½ years. Through good performance this can be reduced to 3 years. The entry requirement is a secondary school certificate (Realschulabschluss).

Your training allowance is € 1001 in the first year of training and increases to € 1223 by the 4th year of training. In addition, there is a year-end performance and holiday pay. You also receive a flat-rate travel allowance.

After completing training, you can expect exciting tasks in our laboratories wherever quality control of our products and production processes is required. Further training possibilities are possible, for example as a Chemical Technician (m/f). It is also possible to undertake further studies parallel to your working.
