Evonik Industries, its Burnaby, B.C. site, specializes in parenteral formulation development and manufacturing process design and implementation at small, intermediate, and large/commercial scales. This enables manufacturing of complex lipid-based formulations of therapeutic agents for preclinical and clinical testing in its state-of-the-art R&D and manufacturing facilities and transfer of drug product manufacturing to commercial facilities. Core analytical methods include HPLC/UPLC, physicochemical characterization assays such as vesicle size, zeta potential, osmolality and separation techniques such as size exclusion and centrifugal filtration.
The site currently has an opening for an Associate Scientist Analytical Development – an R&D position, responsible for method development and analysis of lipid nanoparticle-based drug formulations with responsibility for project planning and development.
Provides technical expertise and leadership to support analytical development of multiple programs;
MSc or PhD in Pharmaceutical Sciences, Chemistry or a Life Sciences discipline with a minimum of 5 years laboratory experience in analytical development.
- Biophysical characterization techniques
- Analytical Chemistry techniques such as HPLC or spectrophotometry/spectrofluorimetry
