Job Details

Eikon Therapeutics is a new biopharmaceutical company employing revolutionary technology at the intersection of chemistry, engineering, computation, and biology to discover novel treatments for life-threatening diseases. Eikon’s discovery platform is built on groundbreaking innovations from its founders (Nobel Prize, 2014), culminating in the creation of microscopes which enable real time, molecular-resolution measurements of protein movement in living cells, thereby unlocking otherwise intractable classes of proteins as drug targets. 


As the Manager, CMC you will be a key member of our Regulatory CMC team, responsible for preparing the strategy and documents for regulatory submissions. This individual will shepherd CMC workflows, through Veeva and other project management tools, for early to late-stage projects. Your expertise in pharmaceutical development and regulatory CMC will be essential in driving our regulatory submissions and ensuring the quality, safety, and efficacy.

About You

You are a dedicated professional with a passion for ensuring the successful development of pharmaceutical products. Your collaborative nature is the cornerstone of your work philosophy, as you thrive on building strong relationships with cross-functional teams. Your keen attention to detail is second nature, as you meticulously oversee the intricacies of meeting regulatory objectives. The prospect of guiding innovations through the complex web of regulations energizes you. With every project, your goal is to merge the precision of regulatory requirements with the excitement of pioneering research and development, ensuring that the medicines of tomorrow are not only groundbreaking but also manufactured with the highest quality standards.

  • Veeva System Management: Utilize your expertise in Veeva or equivalent systems to manage and maintain CMC-related documentation, ensuring accurate and up-to-date records throughout the drug development lifecycle.
  • Technical Oversight: Provide technical leadership and guidance to internal and external stakeholders regarding CMC processes, manufacturing, analytical development, and quality control.
  • Risk Management: Identify potential risks and challenges related to CMC activities, proactively develop mitigation strategies, and contribute to decision-making processes.
  • Cross-Functional Collaboration: Collaborate closely with R&D, Manufacturing, Quality Assurance, Regulatory Affairs, and other teams to ensure seamless integration of CMC activities into overall project timelines and objectives.
  • Quality Standards: Ensure compliance with cGMP (current Good Manufacturing Practices) and other relevant industry regulations, standards, and guidelines to maintain the highest quality of pharmaceutical products.


  • Bachelor's, Master's, or Ph.D. degree in Chemistry, Pharmaceutical Sciences, Chemical Engineering, or a related field.
  • A minimum of 6 years of experience with a Bachelor’s or 4+ years of experience with a post graduate degree in regulatory CMC roles or equivalent experience in pharmaceutical development roles.
  • Proficiency in using Veeva or equivalent electronic document management systems.
  • In-depth understanding of regulatory requirements related to CMC for pharmaceutical products (FDA, EMA, ICH, etc.).
  • Strong project management skills and the ability to effectively manage multiple projects simultaneously.
  • Excellent communication and interpersonal skills, with the ability to collaborate across multidisciplinary teams.
  • Leadership experience, including managing teams and fostering a collaborative work environment.
  • Problem-solving mindset, with the ability to analyze complex issues and develop strategic solutions.
  • Preferred experience with regulatory submissions, including participation in IND, IMPD, NDA, MAA and/or post-approval variation submissions.
