  • Position Overview

    This position is responsible for the planning, implementation, and maintenance of Small Molecule QC methods, processes, and operations for current and new chemicals in the Small Molecule Portfolio with assistance from senior scientists or management.  In this role this scientist will also be expected to contribute to the improvement of QC methods and processes with a focus on adhering to strict product lot release deadlines. The Associate Manufacturing Scientist is also responsible for understanding small molecule product specifications, troubleshooting technical problems, and for developing new methods for optimizing the current QC testing/manufacturing/packaging of small molecules. 


    1. Perform small molecule QC testing utilizing a variety of methodologies (HPLC, TLC, solubility, melting point, etc.).
    2. Analyze and interpret data from small molecule testing with assistance from senior scientists or management.
    3. Utilize method development skills as a means for troubleshooting more complex small molecule related issues in order to ensure that required specifications are met before new product lots are released to inventory.
    4. When needed, assist with all aspects of compound library manufacturing (prefills, library plating, raw material sourcing) and documentation (J-Chem software manipulation, SDS file generation, etc.).
    5. Revise SOPs, batch records, and other related documentation as needed to ensure accurate record keeping and continuous improvement in manufacturing, packaging, and QC testing of Small Molecules.
    6. Optimize and improve existing products and manufacturing/QC processes to continually facilitate improvement in product quality and reduction in scrap rate of raw materials and finished good inventory.
    7. Maintain complete, detailed, and accurate documentation for all chemical QC and chemical production.
    8. When needed, assist with overflow of scheduled chemical fills in order to ensure that shipment deadlines are met.
    9. When needed provide backup and assistance for MSDS/ChemGes support.
    10. Communicate production and QC testing status including any operational or manufacturing/QC issues to the QC Manager and the Manufacturing Lead in a timely manner.
    11. When needed, assist with the manufacture and/or QC testing of ELISA kits and kit components as per pre-existing manufacturing and ELISA QC SOPs. Complexity of kit manufacturing and kit QC assignments are dependent upon experience/skills as determined by QC Manager. 
    12. Manage inventories, supplies, and equipment usage in a manner that supports thorough yet expeditious achievement of manufacturing deadlines.
    13. Maintain operating performance of production and QC testing equipment by adhering to best practices guidelines.
    14. Assist with the preparation of production plans including scheduling resources and raw materials to ensure timely delivery of products.



    Education:  Bachelor’s Degree in a scientific field (preferrably Chemistry, Biochemistry, or Biology).


    Experience:  1–3 years of related scientific product manufacturing experience. Solid background in industrial Chemistry, Biochemistry, or Biology preferred.  Specific hands on experience with HPLC, TLC, and immunoassays a plus.  Knowledge of ISO and/or GMP standards are not required but are also a plus.


    Skills:  Good oral and written communication skills, including strong documentation skills. Excellent planning, technical, and analytical skills. Proven ability to succeed in a fast-paced work environment, manage multiple projects, meet deadlines, and be flexible in responding to changing demands. Ability to work effectively in a team environment. Computer proficiency required. Experience with chemical structure file software and proficiency in Excel are desirable. Must be able to lift up to 25 lbs. and be able to stand 4-6 hours/day.
