**Process Development Scientist**

**Live**

**What you will do**

Let’s do this. Let’s change the world.

**Responsibilities:**

+ Characterizing candidate molecules to support protein primary structure as well as characterizing drug candidate chemical and post-translational modifications (quality attributes) and their susceptibility to modification during the process and product development activities. This includes the use of mass spectrometry coupled with a variety of separation techniques, including liquid chromatography (reversed-phase, size-exclusion, cation-exchange) and capillary zone electrophoresis to identify, characterize, and quantitate quality attributes. LC-MS analysis of intact therapeutic proteins and LC-MS/MS peptide mapping.

+ Focus on developing novel sample preparation and MS-based technologies to reduce time and material requirements during all phases of candidate selection. This role will also emphasize mass spectrometric method development and application for product characterization, including primary structure/glycan structure elucidation. Generation of technical documents and technical presentations is required.

+ Working as part of a cross-functional team to define strategies for protein mass spectrometry testing, performing complex data analyses, and developing high throughput methods to monitor attributes. Requires ability to work collaboratively with other scientists on multidisciplinary teams. Additional responsibilities include keeping current with the field of expertise, including literature and technology development.

+ Responsible for providing scientific results that support the generation of publications, patents, and regulatory submissions, participating in recruiting and candidate evaluation, exploring and evaluating emerging technologies relevant to MS-based characterization of therapeutic proteins, and supervising and analyzing driven scientific knowledge from external sources.

**Win**

**What we expect of you**

We are all different, yet we all use our unique contributions to serve patients.

**Basic Qualifications:**

+ Doctorate degree OR

+ Master’s degree and 4 years of experience OR

+ Bachelor’s degree and 6 years of experience

**Preferred Qualifications:**

+ Ph.D. in biological sciences, analytical chemistry, biochemistry, pharmaceutical sciences, physical sciences, chemical engineering

+ Expertise with statistical software, including Excel, is recommended

+ Experience within the biotech industry, experience including data analyses, statistical analysis, setting acceptance criteria in support of process development, process/method transfers, and comparability studies is a plus.

+ Good problem-solving skills requiring the application of scientific theory

+ Ability to demonstrate skills in independently determining and developing scientific analysis and solutions, as well as demonstrate strong laboratory work skills to include the design and performance of scientific experiments and interpretation of results.

+ Excellent written and oral communication skills for the timely documentation, presentation, and discussion of scientific results in a fast-paced, multi-disciplinary environment.

**Thrive**

**Some of the vast rewards of working here**

As we work to develop treatments that take care of others, we also work to care for our teammates’ professional and personal growth and well-being.

+ Full support and career-development resources to expand your skills, enhance your expertise, and maximize your potential along your career journey

+ A diverse and inclusive community of belonging, where teammates are empowered to bring ideas to the table and act

+ Generous Total Rewards Plan—comprising health, finance and wealth, work/life balance, and career benefits—with compensation and benefits rated above 4 stars (out of 5) on Glassdoor
