Position Summary:

Major role in development and optimization of analytical methods for raw materials and finished products, as per regulatory requirements. Formulation-analytical work would require knowledge and experience in handling liquid chromatography (HPLC, UPLC and preparative chromatography), gas chromatography (volatile organics, leachable and extractible studies), wet chemistry techniques (water analysis, pKa, partition coefficient), mass spectrometry (structural characterization by LCMS) etc. Performing Drug release experiments on Dissolution apparatus for solid dosage forms. Characterization of physico-chemical properties of molecules and excipients. Experience in interpretation of data from thermal analytical techniques (DSC, TGA, etc.), particle size characterization, X-ray crystallography (polymorphism and amorphous characterizations) etc. Preparation, review and maintenance of documents such as SOPs, protocols, reports and presentations. Analytical method transfer to other locations. Participation in meetings with stakeholders locally and globally, for project related updates, planning and strategies. Additional tasks as assigned by manager.


Hands on experience in developing analytical methods for dosage forms like liquids, solids and injectable. Knowledge of drug discovery process and experience in testing of clinical trial batches (Phase I, II and III) supplies would be valuable. In depth knowledge of preformulation studies, material characterization (physical forms) techniques. Ability to work with limited quantities of API to develop robust methods. Excellent communication, presentation skills and scientific/technical writing skills. Demonstrate ability to manage time and resources effectively. Candidate must have a sense of urgency and desire to get things done effectively and efficiently. Must be able to demonstrate success in technical proficiency, scientific creativity, collaboration with others and independent thought process. Must be willing to work as a part of team and be able to demonstrate good interpersonal skills.
