The Protein Biochemistry Group at Regeneron is seeking a biophysical chemist Scientist to provide analytical protein characterization through the use of ground-breaking technologies. You will be responsible for providing in-depth biophysical and biochemical characterization of proteins to support development programs in our pipeline. You will be expected to take on a role in applying a diverse array of sophisticated biophysical techniques to deepen our knowledge of labeled proteins and their heterogeneity to support regulatory submission. This is a permanent position in the Protein Biochemistry Group that will be responsible for development, purification and characterization of the critical protein reagents.

A Typical Day in this Role Might Look Like:
  • Purify and characterize labeled and unlabeled proteins and anti-drug antibodies at both small and large scale
  • Develop and implement new analytical techniques to assess the stability of labeled protein reagents including freeze/thaw studies; optimize labeling conditions and formulation buffers to improve reagent stability
  • Develop site-specific labeling methods as an orthogonal to amine coupling
  • Provide well characterized protein reagents to other departments in the company and to collaborators
  • Manage stability testing program for critical protein reagents
  • Manage and mentor research associates and work as part of a collaborative team to meet project milestones
  • Conduct experiments to determine quality attributes of labeled drugs that impact downstream assays
  • Maintain documentation of experimental procedures and results in a laboratory notebook per established guidelines
  • Provide timely support to internal and external collaborators and present results and reports at various meetings
  • This position will provide the opportunity to make visible contributions to a variety of projects while interacting with a knowledgeable and dedicated multidisciplinary team

This Job Might be For You If:
