Design experiments and write protocols for assay qualification and development. Perform assays or supervise other analysts for assay qualification and validation work. Frequently write technical reports and present findings to internal or external clients. Analyze experimental data with appropriate statistical tools and reprot scientific results.
Demonstrates success in technical proficiency, scientific creativity, collaboration with others and independent thought. Works on complex problems in which analysis of data requires evaluation of identifiable factors. Exercises judgment within generally defined practices and policies in selecting methods and techniqures for obtaining solutions.
PhD in a scientific discipline such as Analytical Chemistry, Biochemistry, Biological Sciences, or equivalent is required. Three to five years related experience; may include post doctoral experience. Extensive experience with chemical/biochemical and biological testing is necessary. The individual should have experience with one or more of the following: HPLC, GC, spectrophotometric assays, immunochemical methods, titration assays, SDS PAGE, IEF, various ELISAs, enzymatic assays and/or IR spectroscopy. The individual should possess good communication skills, be detail-oriented, and able to work well with others. The individual should be flexible and able to handle multiple projects and task, able to solve problems with minimum help. Ascertains relationships between molecular structure and physical properties to aid in analysis of unknown compounds. Conducts research to develop or improve analytical techniques, methodology, procedures and investigates application of instruments in analysis. Organizes and interprets all data obtained. May also require the use of mass spectrometer equipment.
