Post : Research Associate I

Job Description
This position provides support to the Analytical development laboratory in technical and operational activities such as hands-on support for Physico-chemical analysis, Instrumental analysis, and material characterization or testing for product development. The successful candidate will need to possess solid “hands-on” technical abilities, excitement and energy for product development, and a passion for their work and the impact it has on meeting the needs of patients. The incumbent will perform other duties as assigned.

• Define, organize, plan and execute analytical activities and materials characterization of pharmaceutical injectables in compliance with current international/regional/national regulations with the support of senior colleagues and team members.
• Execute experiments towards method development, failure analysis, and root cause analysis in new product development and sustaining product projects within specified timelines, under supervision.
• Work with and interpret data of advanced instrumentation techniques, hyphenated techniques, and other analytical techniques.
• Execution of work as per standard guidelines like cGLP, GDP, cGMP, Data Integrity, ALCOA, and as per Baxter’s defined systems, whenever applicable.
• Investigate and provide technical insights for observed adverse physicochemical issues during product development, scale-up, or post-marketing phases. Engage in science-based troubleshooting of the issues.
• Provide proposals for product development-related innovations, analytical method innovations, and product/process improvement initiatives in collaboration with senior scientists.
• Ensure good internal and cross-functional communication and regular status update of activities.
• Preparation of scientific product development reports, proposals, and presentations.
• Work collaboratively with the multi-functional and international project team in activities such as sample preparation for analysis, and operation of analytical instruments as per project requirements.
• Provide support as needed in calibration and maintenance of equipment in the laboratory.
• Follow Baxter’s Quality Manual, SOPs, and Environmental Health, Safety & Sustainability (EHS&S) guidelines in day-to-day activities, to ensure proactive compliance and continuous improvement.

Candidate Profile
• A Fresher having a Ph. D in Chemistry or Pharmaceutical Analysis Or, an equivalent Ph. D degree with an emphasis on Organic Chemistry / Analytical Chemistry / Pharmaceutical Sciences.
• Worked on analytical method development of products of complex injectables – i.e., chemically unstable products, liquid and lyophilized products, dispersed systems (emulsions/suspensions) etc. using sophisticated and advanced instrumental techniques.
• Basic understanding (working principles, instrumentation, potential applications) of spectroscopic techniques like (FTIR, UV, ICP-OES/MS, AAS etc.), Chromatographic technique (HPLC/GC), hyphenated techniques (LC-MS, GC-MS), microscopic techniques (e.g., light microscopy, Raman), and Particle size analysis (e.g., Zeta Sizer, Master sizer), Osmometer, Viscometer. Ability to interpret the results will be an added advantage.
• Hands-on experience in the operation of analytical tools/instruments (weighing balances, pH meters) and basic wet chemistry sample preparation techniques.

• Working knowledge of basic chemistry principles and structure elucidation techniques.
• Ability to apply scientific concepts during product development or scientific troubleshooting.
• Good written and verbal communication skills.
• Knowledgeable in the application of statistical approaches related to product development.
• Good command on computer-based software applications, like Word, Excel, and PowerPoint.
• Ability and agility in grasping new scientific concepts and applying them for product development.
• Should have self-initiative and be resourceful.
• Ready to engage in collaborative work.
• Have a broad overview of product development process, tech transfer and post marketing phase of the pharmaceutical industry.
• Have a broad overview of different types of regulatory filings for pharmaceutical products.
• Have a general idea of intellectual property rights esp. patents.
• Well-versed with applicability of pharmaceutical compendial requirements and the routinely referred guidance documents (USP, IP, ISO, CFR, ICH, cGMP, WHO, GLP, GDP)
• Well versed in QbD and DOE
• Basic understanding of structural elucidation of compounds, column chemistry and Literature search for developing analytical method
• Published peer-reviewed journal articles (review or research)
• Demonstrates flexibility and the ability to shift gears between projects comfortably.
