  • Work with multidisciplinary teams to resolve challenges encountered in drug development through experimental design and execution.

  • Compile, analyze, and communicate test results to collaborators, investigate unexpected results related to products or analytical methods, and diagnose equipment malfunctions.

  • Independently analyze, review and document analytical data in compliance with regulatory requirements, and generate timely and concise documentation of scientific results.

Position Requirements:

  • The successful candidate must have an advanced degree in analytical chemistry, chemistry, biochemistry or related field. 0-4 years of relevant industrial or postdoctoral experience required with a PhD degree or a minimum of 6 years’ experience with a M.S. degree.
