The successful candidate will work in Drug Product Development (DPD) department. The incumbent will develop, design and perform process development work to support novel formulations activities. The incumbent will design and execute experiments in support of formulation development of biologic drug candidates. He/she will propose and develop models that not only explain observed results but also predict selected protein behaviors. He/she will actively contribute to innovation efforts (e.g. new technologies) in supporting manufacturing and stabilization of proteins and large molecules. He/she will participate in a cross-functional team. The successful candidate witll design workflows and studies, collect, record, and interpret data appropriately.
