Novaliq GmbH is an established drug delivery company based in the Heidelberg Technology Park.

Collaborations with big pharma and universities create steady flow of new development projects. One Rx product has recently successfully completed its Phase 1 study and an OTC product is about to be launched (1st October 2015). Additional products are under development which will be licensed out to marketing & sales partners. The company is financed by a German highly reputable investor in biotech, Dievini Hopp Bio Tech Holding GmbH & Co. KG. The team shows high diversity with members of many cultures and educational backgrounds.
The pharmaceutical development group is looking for research associates/scientists to support work within their R&D/Formulation groups.
