Process Validation Engineer

Gaithersburg, MD

Your tasks

As a member of the Lentigen Technology Process Development team, you will have the exciting opportunity to advance the development and characterization of lentiviral vectors manufactured from clinical studies to commercial gene therapy products.

You will apply your process validation knowledge and development experience to identify design space and define process control ranges for viral vector production.  You will draft characterization study protocols/reports and work with Development, Analytical, and pre-Clinical manufacturing Process Development team members to ensure a robust, scalable production process.

Your Statistical design/analysis software experience will allow you to utilize JMP Design of Experiment (DoE) and Statistics software to analyze previous data and perform studies to identify critical and non-critical process parameters as well as execute scale-down model qualifications.  Your technical experience related to the development and/or manufacturing of biologics in a late-stage, commercial organization will enable you to perform risk assessments and FMEA, identifying TPP based critical and non-critical performance parameters.

Overall, your attention to detail and keen ability to reliably execute process validation activities in a cross-functional team will champion the continued development of Lentigen Technology’s new products and growing success.
