  • Compiling and organizing information and evaluating product and process risks, and providing justifications for implementing process controls or for making updates to existing process control programs.
  • Drafting of process control documents, including Process Control Strategy documents, In-Process Control (IPC) Development Reports, and Process Performance Monitoring Plans, including setting relevant limits using appropriate scientific rationale or statistical analysis, where appropriate.
  • Technical and scientific writing of assessments to summarize criticality of product attributes to recommend appropriate testing at release pools and support creation of specifications.
  • Completing and/or reviewing IPC documentation associated with batch manufacture or for regulatory filings.
  • Coordinating with team members to obtain additional data as needed to support creation, updates, and changes to process control programs.
  • Understanding, defending, and presenting on process control program structure, rationale, and methodologies during cross-functional meetings and to senior leadership when required.
