Regeneron's Analytical Chemistry Group, Inc. located at Tarrytown, NY is looking for a Staff Scientist, Analytical Chemistry. The Staff Scientist will work in a state-of-the-art analytical lab and lead characterization of therapeutic protein drug candidates to enhance all stages of drug development, from early-stage candidate selections to late-stage regulatory submissions. As a group, our Analytical Chemistry team develops innovative mass spectrometry-related technologies to support Regeneron R&D programs in the context of multidisciplinary project teams.

A Typical Day in the Role Might Look Like:
  • Lead analytical and biochemical characterization of therapeutics, including monoclonal antibodies, bispecifics, adeno-associated virus and other therapeutic drug candidates to support different drug development activities;
  • Accountable for the development of analytical strategies and methods to elucidate and ascertain quality attributes, risk assessment and control strategies, including PTMs, product and process related impurities, especially for host cell proteins (HCPs), charge variants, LMW/HMW species, sequence variants, etc., to address emerging challenges
  • Provide analytical mentorship and support for formulation development, upstream and downstream functional groups manufacturing to tackle real-time development issues in the process development and OOT/OOS investigations
  • Identify and drive technical innovations that will supply future developmental needs and improvements
  • Present work at the internal and external meetings; prepares and reviews development reports, memos, and regulatory submission documents in CMC (e.g., IND, IMPD, BLA, MAA, comparability and other study reports.) and peer-reviewed articles for publications
