Lilly Associate-TS/MS Laboratory in Branchburg, New Jersey

46577BR

Responsibilities:

Position Brand Description:

The Technical Services/Manufacturing Science (TS/MS) Laboratory in Branchburg supports commercial and late stage clinical manufacturing of recombinant mammalian therapeutics through the development and use of comprehensive small-scale models, both upstream and downstream. Our vision is to support the smooth, timely and efficient transfer of new molecules in and out of the site with facility fit and cGMP compliance in mind, as well as to support commercially manufactured products. We are committed to streamlining manufacturing through creative experimental design and an in-depth knowledge of the relevant molecules and processes. The position requires strong technical knowledge of cell culture, including experimental design, planning, hands-on laboratory work, data analysis and report preparation.

We are looking for a talented upstream scientist/engineer to join the TS/MS lab, who will be responsible for designing, planning, executing and troubleshooting of laboratory experiments in support of manufacturing operations, continuous improvement, process validation and technology transfer. The candidate should have experience in upstream mammalian cell culture and bioreactor experimental design/operation. The candidate will be expected to develop and lead upstream projects and should understand how upstream process parameters can affect monoclonal antibody critical quality attributes. Prior experience in analytical methods is preferred. The candidate would be cross-trained to understand and perform such methods related to TS/MS projects.

Key Objectives/Deliverables:

  • Process Support, Process Improvement, and Technology Transfer

  • Provide expertise in the area of recombinant biologic production process, bioreactor engineering, and scale-up principles; have an in-depth knowledge of the science (including analytical) behind the molecule and the process.

  • Lead the transfer and qualification of cell culture/bioreactor laboratory models from R&D for late stage clinical and commercial manufacturing processes.

  • Design and perform laboratory experiments in scale-down models designed to further understand and improve the process. Work with Manufacturing to resolve technical issues / deviations and implement corrective / preventative actions in the plant.

  • Collaborate with R&D and Manufacturing to develop, transfer and implement well-understood, robust and fit-for-purpose process control strategies.

  • Use comprehensive business and technical knowledge/experience to drive solutions for products and processes across sites and biologics portfolio.

  • Author/review technical reports and presentations.

  • Communicate results across functions, sites and scientific meetings.

  • Understand, and perform all job responsibilities in compliance with, safety and regulatory expectations.

Req ID:

46577BR

Additional Skills/Preferences:

  • Experienced in cell culture techniques used in the manufacturing of recombinant expressed therapeutics.

  • Experienced in statistical data analysis and knowledge of design of experiment (DoE) principles.

  • Experience with bioreactor setup/operation/troubleshooting and scale-up/scale-down engineering principles.

  • The ideal candidate would gain the process understanding to later rotate into a front-line TS/MS process support role in the manufacturing plant.

  • Have prior understanding of cGMP and regulatory requirements
