Major role in development and optimization of analytical methods for raw materials and finished products, as per regulatory requirements. Formulation-analytical work would require knowledge and experience in handling liquid chromatography (HPLC, UPLC and preparative chromatography), gas chromatography (volatile organics, leachable and extractible studies) dissolution techniques, wet chemistry techniques (water analysis, pKa, partition coefficient), mass spectrometry (structural characterization by LCMS) etc. Characterization of physico-chemical properties of molecules and excipients. Experience in interpretation of data from thermal analytical techniques (DSC, TGA, etc.), particle size characterization, X-ray crystallography (polymorphism and amorphous characterizations) etc. Preparation, review and maintenance of documents such as SOPs, protocols, reports and presentations. Directly managing a small team of junior staff to achieve the set objectives and regular feedback to supervisor on the progress of assigned work. Training and mentoring of team members. Guidance, mentoring and oversight of analytical raw data, calculations, results and conclusions. Analytical method transfer to other locations. Any other responsibilities delegated by Supervisor from time to time. Experience in analysis of Peptides/Proteins would be added advantage.
