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 a Senior/Research Associate Analytical Development – an R&D position, responsible for method development and analysis of lipid nanoparticle-based drug formulations.
Develops analytical assays and performs physical and chemical testing of liposome formulations;
- Biophysical characterization techniques such as particle size.
- Analytical Chemistry techniques such as HPLC or spectrophotometer
