COVID 19 Vacancies


Your next move could mean our next step towards a vaccine against COVID-19. We are putting in our best effort to develop a vaccine against the coronavirus. For example, our researchers in Leiden are taking important steps developing our vaccine while our operators and engineers are starting the production of the vaccine. At the same time, regular care continues, and we continue to focus on patients for whom our medicines can make a difference. In order to be able to do this extra work, we are looking for 250 new colleagues (mainly in Leiden and several in Geel) to join our team. Will you join us in creating a future where disease is a thing of the past?

As part of the Johnson & Johnson Group, Janssen has been contributing to healthcare for over 50 years. With more than 5000 employees in Belgium, we work on all aspects involved in the discovery, development, production and marketing of medicines. One of the focus areas of Janssen is infectious diseases and vaccines. Over the past decades, for example, we have worked on a vaccine against Ebola (recently approved by the EMA), on a treatment against multi-resistant tuberculosis, and we have taken important steps towards a vaccine against HIV. The knowledge we gained in these breakthroughs enables us to make steps towards a vaccine against COVID-19.
