The AbbVie Experiential Internship Program As an AbbVie Experiential Intern, you'll participate in a paid, ten to twelve-week summer program that is focused on providing students with robust projects throughout the summer. As an intern, you will be located at our corporate headquarters in north suburban Chicago, with housing and shuttle services for eligible students. Department Overview - Process Chemistry Process Research and Development (PR&D) invents chemical processes and prepares active pharmaceutical ingredient (API) to enable clinical trials, toxicology studies and drug product development for AbbVie's pre-clinical and clinical drug pipeline. PR&D scientists create valuable intellectual property through composition of matter, chemical processes, and technologies resulting in cost effective commercial manufacturing processes. PR&D also develops supply chain for APIs, and prepare and defend CMC (Chemistry, Manufacturing and Control) regulatory content. Assignment Details The summer intern will work on synthesis of a variety of novel phosphine ligands and apply them in metal-catalyzed reactions. A highly modular synthetic approach will be developed to rapidly synthesize several analogs of the ligand. High-throughput, parallel screening techniques will be utilized to screen these ligands in reactions of interest to AbbVie. Testing of these ligands in metal-catalyzed reactions will allow exploration of previously unknown space in catalysis with respect to the steric and electronic properties of ligands. Qualifications
  • Completed at least one year of college education before beginning internship
  • Must be enrolled in school the semester following your internship
  • Graduate Level Student majoring in synthetic organic chemistry or organometallic chemistry
  • Minimum Cumulative GPA: 3.0/4.0
  • Must be authorized to work in the U.S. on a permanent basis without requiring sponsorship (students on an F1 visa with CPT can be accommodated).
