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 manufacturing technologies include liposome extrusion, micro-mixing, tangential flow filtration (TFF) and sterile filtration with availability of small to large-scale equipment.
The site currently has an opening for a Research Associate - Process Development position, responsible for the development and scale-up manufacturing of lipid nanoparticle-based drug formulations and technology transfer to GMP production.
