  • An ability to work as part of a team, engaging other scientists with complementary skill sets in the field of pharmaceutical development.

  • A change agent mentality, proposing novel approach to challenging scientific questions and exploring new modeling approaches.

  • Ability to design and deliver lab experimental plans for crystallization process development including use of typical process and analytical experiment.

Preferred Qualifications:

  • Familiar with PAT and common off-line analytical technics such as HPLC, GC and NMR

  • Modeling experience using gPROMS, DynoChem, Matlab, Python or similar programming languages.

  • Some knowledge in Multivariate Analysis, chemometrics and statistics

  • Experience in the development and scale-up of continuous processes

Additional Comment (if any):

Domestic and international travel may be required (5-10%).
