Known for its scientific and operational excellence, Regeneron is a leading science-based biopharmaceutical company that discovers, invents, develops, manufactures, and commercializes medicines for the treatment of serious medical conditions. Regeneron commercializes medicines for eye diseases, high LDL-cholesterol, atopic dermatitis and a rare inflammatory condition and has product candidates in development in other areas of high unmet medical need, including rheumatoid arthritis, asthma, pain, cancer and infectious diseases.
The Preclinical Manufacturing and Process Development group is looking for an Analytical Lead, Process Development, responsible for establishing analytical efforts to support manufacturing process development functions. This function will provide Adeno-Associated Virus (AAV) manufacturing processes and products with the aim of providing treatment to unmet medical needs through gene therapy. The analytical function is embedded within the process development team and has the dual responsibility of designing, characterizing and implementing high through-put analytical tools supporting innovation of AAV manufacturing processes, while also performing routine analytical analysis. This is a growth opportunity that combines the excitement and opportunity of a start-up with the security and institution knowledge gained from working for a larger firm.
Job Responsibilities include, but are not limited to:Support viral vector process development and production by designing, characterizing, implementing, coordinating, and executing fast and robust assays for the analysis of process- and product-related impurities of viral vector production processes.
Lead assay development, drive results, and onboard new technologies.
Demonstrate expertise in theory and practice of manufacturing steps and analytical methods.
