Role: Formulation chemist Scientist II

Location: 21 Davis Drive, Research Triangle Park, NC, USA, 27709-2016...

Duration: 12 Months

Job Description
• Under the supervision of an R&D Manager, the candidate will help with the development of new chemical formulations and/or biomaterials (hydrogels, coatings, resorbable polymers, viscoelastic materials etc.), and test methods for characterizing them.
• Specifically, the candidate is expected to design and execute experiments aimed at developing formulations for enabling controlled release of drugs/proteins, and improving our understanding of the drug-material-tissue interactions impacting the performance of medical devices.
• Additional duties involve characterization of formulations using analytical instrumentation and assessment of functional performance both in-vitro and in-vivo.
• Additional responsibilities include investigating and resolving technical problems and managing different workstreams to meet program objectives and timelines.
• The incumbent is expected to work closely with other R&D project team members and support functions, contribute to the development of intellectual property, create experimental designs/test methods, and analyze experimental data.
• They will work with project team leadership to help ensure a smooth transition of projects from the Innovation phase to product development.
• The successful candidate must have experience working in a chemicals/materials/biomedical/textiles lab, be familiar with basic synthetic (polymers or small molecules) chemistry techniques, and have hands-on experience using analytical instruments (UPLC, spectroscopic methods).
• Additional experience with test method development using medical prototypes, working knowledge of biomedical polymeric materials and their characterization methods (rheology, Instron, etc.), and preclinical testing in animals is also valuable.
• The candidate should be able to plan and conduct scientific experiments, and effectively analyze, interpret, and present experimental results while collaborating with team members from a variety of backgrounds.

• Extensive experience working with various chemicals/materials/polymers
• Experience designing and characterizing formulations (micro/nano particles, gels, emulsions, biomedical polyesters, other viscoelastic systems etc.). Experience developing controlled drug delivery formulations is a plus.
• Hands-on experience with commonly used analytical instrumentation equipments (UPLC, spectroscopic methods)
• Ability to design, execute, and appropriately document experiments
• Ability to effectively interpret and present scientific results

Education And Experience
• Graduate degree (Ph.D. preferred) or equivalent work experience in the fields of Chemistry, Chemical Engineering, Textile engineering, Biomedical Engineering, Materials Science and Engineering, or related scientific discipline.
• Prior work experience in a medical device R&D organization is a plus.
• Experience developing drug delivery formulations and biomedical coatings
• Experience in basic synthetic chemistry (small molecules or polymer synthesis)
• Knowledge of materials characterization tools (such as rheometer, Instron, spectroscopic methods, DSC, GPC, etc.) and interpreting resultant data
• Experience with in-vivo testing of biomedical devices or prototypes
• Willingness to work occasionally with biological specimens (e.g. animal tissues) for lab scale testing
