We are seeking a formulation scientist who is up for the challenge of designing and testing formulations for a steady stream of novel drug compounds across many disease areas. Our in silico platform generates novel molecular scaffolds that are well differentiated from those in traditional drug-like compound libraries. Since these drug compounds belong to previously unaccessed portions of chemical space, it is important that you are able think outside of the box and utilize your knowledge of oral and topical ocular drug delivery, nanoparticle drug delivery systems, polymer and extended release formulations with various release profiles in order to bridge the gap between tomorrow’s therapeutics and today’s patient needs.

As a member of our drug discovery team, you will be a part of a collaborative and fast-paced, multi-disciplinary research environment, working closely with our team of biologists and medicinal chemists.

Qualifications:

  • PhD in Pharmaceutical Chemistry, Chemical Engineering or related discipline
  • Strong hands-on expertise in analytical chemistry and various drug formulations for ocular drug delivery
  • In-depth understanding of chemical stability and characterization techniques
  • Thorough understanding of cGMP, pharmacopeia testing and regulatory requirements for filing and registration of small molecules and biologics
