Candidates must have 2-5 years of work experience
To support the complex drug product design and process
development projects being executed in the Drug Product Design department
(Pharmaceutical Sciences) there is a need for additional specialized laboratory
scientists to be engaged.
Their responsibilities will
Hands-on generation of data using laboratory techniques such as X-ray
diffraction, thermal analysis, NMR (solid state and liquid), vibrational
spectroscopy, laser diffraction particle size analysis, electron microscopy,
liquid chromatography, shear cell testing, compaction simulation, etc.
Hands-on generation of data using small scale manufacturing technologies such
as blending, granulation, milling, tablet compaction, encapsulation, film
Preparation of prototype formulations (solutions, suspensions, tablets,
capsules, etc) for exploratory studies in in-vitro and in-vivo models.
Evaluation of the robustness of prototype drug product manufacturing processes.
Analysis of solid and liquid samples for key physical and chemical properties
(such as solubility, static charge, sticking potential, segregation tendency,
Accurate record keeping of the above activities using electronic databases,
notebooks and document management systems.
Calculation of derived parameters and properties from primary data.
Scale-up and scale-down of drug product manufacturing processes using
engineering models and computer simulations.
Maintaining and calibrating complex instrumentation (such as X-ray
diffractometers, Raman spectrometers, electron microscopes, tablet presses,
Working in a GLP or GMP environment with appropriate documentation and safety
Evaluation of new equipment/technology.
Typically qualified to BS, MS or PhD in chemistry, engineering,
biology, pharmacy, materials science, physics, computer science or related
