SRI International, Biosciences Division, is seeking a formulation scientist to be a part of the Formulation & Advanced Drug Delivery group within the Center for Pharmaceutical Sciences. The successful candidate will design and develop pre-clinical stage candidate formulations for the delivery of small-molecules/proteins/vaccines/antibodies. Candidate will actively collaborate with analytical and quality control, pharmacokinetics and toxicology, clinical manufacturing and quality assurance, as needed, throughout the various stages of the project.
Duties will include development of stable injectable formulations.
Hands-on experience in microfluidizer, spray-drying, fermentation process scale-up, lyophilization cycle development, and microencapsulation/nanosuspension is desired.
Experience developing novel long-acting intramuscular formulation platform is a plus.
Candidate will be responsible for generating pre-formulation and formulation technical reports, as well as technology transfer reports.
Candidate will be mentored to author and review development and production reports and CMC sections of regulatory submissions.
A Ph.D. in Chemistry, Biochemistry, Pharmaceutical Sciences, Biomedical Engineering or related fields is required. In-depth knowledge of formulation and biopharmaceutical development, protein biochemistry and degradation mechanisms, biopharmaceutical manufacturing processes, combination drug products, and/or analytical and comparability testing strategies is required. Candidate should be able to work both independently and as part of a multidisciplinary team. Excellent written and oral communication skills are required. Successful hire will eventually have the opportunity to build own funded research program within the Formulation & Advanced Drug Delivery group.
