Job Description

Spacer Image
Our client, a Raleigh area company that is developing cutting edge Class III devices for surgical procedures, is actively recruiting for a very bright, capable and knowledgeable scientist to assume key role on its R&D team.

This is an outstanding opportunity with one of the fastest growing companies in the Triangle. Initial products are on the market, a second product is near launch and the pipeline is rich. The Raleigh office is expanding to meet increased demands, and the future is very bright.

This is a hybrid role that will involve R&D/preclinical functions as well as QC testing of finished product. Both functions will require consistent and compliant documentation habits. Seek quality-driven scientist, with GMP/GLP lab experience, who will bring excellence to all.

Specific duties will include:

Lab Research - wet chemistry techniques and pre-clinical experimentation, and related documentation
• Provide technical lab support such as formulation development, experimental design, manufacturing support, and test method validations
• Test and evaluate product formulations using analytical techniques and performance assays. Perform tolerance and stability testing as required
• Design of experiments execution to establish formulation and manufacturing critical parameters
• Participate in formulation development and scale up work
• Validate novel test methods (including IR, FTIR, HPLC, GPC, GC, LC, titrations) to characterize prepolymers, polymers, degradants and extractants
• Perform data analysis, record keeping, protocol and report preparation, and laboratory maintenance
• Perform analytical, physical and functional testing of products

Quality Control - test methods on finished product, and related documentation
• Perform analytical and physical tests on samples using instrumentation and equipment including HPLC, GPC, rheometers, titrators, and Instron
• Perform calculations to measure such factors as shear force, viscosity, purity/composition, gel point, and visual appearance utilizing documented test methods
• Perform calibration and maintenance of general test equipment
• Collect and record results of sampling and testing
• Revise and update standard operating procedures as needed
All activities are performed and documented in a cGMP/cGLP and ISO 13485 environment.

Targeted candidate will offer a scientific degree and 2+ years of experience in a lab, handling duties similar to those cited above including analytical testing, protocol prep, test method design, etc. Exceptional documentation habits expected and required. Some background in a Quality Control function is also needed. Industry experience is preferred, but will consider exceptional candidate who has handled similar duties in an academic setting.

In addition, we seek a candidate who will work exceedingly well in this dynamic, empowered and collaborative start-up environment. Team members are hands-on, flexible and mission-driven. We seek a candidate who combines the scientific knowledge with the attitude, versatility, and commitment to thrive.

This is a Direct Hire role and an immediate need. Please forward Word resume for prompt consideration.
