We are seeking a Scientist to support key analytical method development and method characterization activities within the Formulation Development Group of Regeneron Pharmaceutical Inc. at Tarrytown, NY. In this role, you will be responsible for developing fit for purpose analytical methods that will be used to assess drug product stability of various modalities, including mABs, ADC, fusion proteins, RNA therapeutics from pre-clinical to commercialization development. In addition, this individual will support development of new analytical technologies/tools for assessing formulation and stability characterization.

A Typical Day in the Role Might Look Like:
• Develops and qualifies analytical methods to support formulation development, process development, and stability testing for early and late stages programs.
• Directly or indirectly leads, guides, and works with other Scientists and Research Associates in conducting research and developmental activities. Investigates and solves problems related to the methods used to assess product quality and stability. Sets goals, assigns tasks, and provides performance management and development as needed.
• Serves as an analytical team representative in cross functional team meetings, and shares knowledge and expertise within the company.
• Authors and reviews sections of regulatory and technical documents, method SOPs, method performance reports, method transfer documents and contributes to pharmaceutical development reports for completeness and correctness.
• Maintains full proven understanding of scientific literature for techniques and instruments and applying appropriately to projects.
• Identifies and assess novel analytical methods and technologies. Contribute to the acquisition of new instrumentation.
• Participates in general lab and instrument maintenance.

This Role Might Be For You If:
• You have strong initiative and drive to complete results-oriented tasks and learn new technologies related to formulation development.
• You are capable of multi-tasking, working both independently and within a team environment.

This role requires a Ph.D. in Analytical Chemistry, Chemistry, Biochemistry, Pharmaceutical Science, Chemical or Biomedical Engineering (or related field) with a minimum of 1-4 years meaningful experience in developing and characterizing analytical methods for biological drug products, including mABs, ADC, fusion proteins, RNA therapeutics. Track record in developing, trouble-shooting and validating analytical methods used in biopharmaceutical development, including capillary electrophoresis, HPLC/UPLC, mass spectrometry. Strong understanding of ICH guidelines and familiar with analytical requirement for drug product development such as stability study, IV and SC administration is desirable. Knowledge and experience in protein characterization, degradation pathway identification and particle analysis for biological products using biochemical and biophysical tools are a plus. Familiarity with the techniques commonly used to identify and quantitate leachable and extractable compounds in biologic drug products would be advantageous. The ability to work independently to design experiments, as well as interpret, document and communicate results is required. Experience with quality by design (QbD) or the application of statistical approaches to method development including design of experiments (DOE) is desirable. Excellent oral and written communication skills are required. Enthusiasm in science with a drive for making meaningful contributions a plus.
