- Demonstrated proficiency of LC-MS or LC-MS/MS instrumentation, method development, and data interpretation
- In depth expertise in bioanalytical chemistry and the physicochemical properties of small molecules, and/or peptides, proteins, and biomolecules as they relate to the pre-formulation and formulation development of new drugs
- Understanding and working knowledge of regulatory guidance for bioanalysis and GLP compliance.
- Experience in biopharmaceutical development, lyophilized formulation development, parenteral formulations or novel dosage form design a plus
- Excellent communication, interpersonal and management skills to collaborate with and direct the work of others on assigned projects (including both internal teams and external collaborators) required
- Sound knowledge of related aspects of pharmaceutical research, development, and commercialization processes
- Established knowledge of applicable global drug development and regulatory standards including cGMPs
- Experience preparing technical sections of regulatory submissions and interacting with regulatory authorities on technical matters a plus
