Senior Scientist - Bioanalytical Method Development

The Senior Scientist - Bioanalytical Method Development is a part of the Assay Development team which designs and executes assays that complement the company's capabilities in custom critical reagents to enable clients to efficiently make data-driven decisions for optimal analytical outcomes to support biotherapeutic drug development. To realize this goal, B2S offers a range of services from drug discovery through nonclinical/clinical development. This includes early phase ADME investigations, reagent optimization, generation of optimal matched pair of antibodies, method qualification, and non-GLP sample analysis.

The Senior Scientist develops, documents, and qualifies large molecule bioanalytical methods including, but not limited to PK/TK, immunogenicity, and biomarker assays to support a range of nonclinical/clinical studies. The Senior Scientist will:

  • Design and develop new bioanalytical methods primarily based on ligand binding assays to support the development of large molecule therapeutics.
  • Perform a variety of assays including conventional Enzyme Linked Immuno Sorbent Assay (ELISA)/Electrochemiluminescence (ELISA/ECL) immunoassays as well as biophysical/biochemical/bioanalytical characterization techniques including bio-layer interferometry.
  • Complete sample analysis and method qualifications.
  • Troubleshoot existing analytical methods.
  • Review data associated with method investigations, development, and qualification efforts.
  • Compile scientific data (including analysis and technical writing) in an intelligible format suitable for a professional audience
  • Record and note the experimental processes on time and in a correct documentation format.
  • Report and treat data with high level of integrity and ethics.
  • Comply with application able regulations (GXP); maintain proper records in accordance with standard operating procedures (SOPs) and policies; independently design and perform scientific experiments with a pre-defined goal including developing new methodologies, protocols, and/or test procedures that contribute to core group research goals and reflect expert knowledge.
  • Write, edit, and revise standard operating procedures (SOPs), qualifications, and forms.
  • Independently apply basic scientific principles, perform literature searches, attend scientific meetings, and keep up to date on literature in the biotherapeutic bioanalysis field.
  • Order laboratory supplies, as needed.
  • Maintain laboratory equipment, as needed.
  • Perform other duties as assigned.
Education and Experience:
The ideal candidate will have a Bachelor’s Degree (B.S.) with at least five-years of direct laboratory experience, or a Master’s Degree (M.S.) in chemistry or a related science with at least three-years of direct laboratory experience. An equivalent combination of related education and required work experience will be considered with management approval.
ELISA/Ligand Binding Assay experience strongly preferred
