Sanofi Manufacturing and Supply Organization is preparing its future through an ambitious program named EVolutive Facility (EVF). The EVF Project is at the cornerstone of Sanofi strategy as it aims at creating a new manufacturing concept consisting of a new generation of evolutive multi-product facilities, modular, adaptable and agile, leveraging new disruptive technologies, to better address vaccine business challenges as well as Specialty Care biological products. One of these two EVF is implemented in Singapore in a new Greenfield site, with a design similar to the one in Neuville (France). Our manufacturing sites are state-of-the-art, powered by big data and digital. It is the bridge between scientific advances and transformative medicines and will be serving millions of people around the world. 

Manufacturing Science and Analytical Technology (MSAT) drives the industrialization and the improvement of biological processes and products. It embarks new technologies and digital trends. It is the keeper of manufacturing process knowledge. MSAT is at the crossroad of R&D and production. It is a multi-disciplinary function that provides expertise in process, manufacturing sciences, process modeling, statistical analysis, process validation and technology transfer.

The MSAT team in Sanofi EVF Singapore is seeking a MSAT Material Expert to refine and execute strategies of single use systems and raw materials during project startup, process validation as well as routine manufacturing. The Material Expert will be accountable for material design, qualification strategy and plans from a site process technical expert perspective, to ensure process materials and their cGMP documents are timely and of adequate process and compliance quality. The Material Expert is self-directed in representing MSAT in the site Material Council while managing internal stakeholder expectations and communications.
