A BS or Master's Degree with an engineering or scientific discipline focused on biologics, with a focus in a process engineering field (e.G., chemical, or biochemical engineering) is strongly preferred.
Industry related experience Associate Scientist I (BS with 0-5 years, MS 0-3 years). Industrial experience developing or supporting clinical or commercial biotechnology is not required.
Proficiency in Microsoft Office (or related) programs.
Excellent teamwork and communication skills including proven technical writing skills are required.
Experience in depth filtration and TFF optimization.
Knowledge of continuous centrifugation.
Experience with GMP equipment design and use of data management systems.
Skilled in effectively explaining complex scientific or engineering concepts to a broader, diverse, cross-functional audience.
Position may require weekend work.
As an Associate Scientist in Bioprocess Technology and Engineering (BTE), you would join a team developing the Client's harvest operation.
You and the team would develop the harvest operation platform to support both traditional fed-batch bioreactors as well as high-density perfusion cell culture for biological therapeutics, including antibodies, bispecific antibodies, and Fc-fusions.
You would apply these methods to drug candidates in Phase I, II, and those entering Phase III.
As the molecules progress through the development lifecycle, you will have opportunity to develop the process characterization methods to support commercialization.
You would work on a matrix team with members from cell line development, cell culture development, purification development, analytical development, formulation development, and data analytics and modelling.
Help develop and optimize mammalian cell culture harvest, specifically continuous centrifuge, and depth filtration, as well as process technology.
Help develop and improve tangential flow filtration (TFF) for cell culture perfusion.
Demonstrate scientific rigor in assessing own data and that of others.
Support technology transfer to clinical and commercial manufacturing sites.
This 12+ month position starts ASAP.
