Our scientists and engineers develop innovative technical and business solutions using their deep technical expertise to accelerate testing of the clinical hypothesis and overall drug development. Through recognizing the value of a culturally diverse workforce, SMDD delivers on these responsibilities and helps bring the next generation of life changing medicines to patients.

Our team is looking for experienced, creative, and energetic technical leaders to lead overall control strategy development, unit operation optimization and process optimization of synthetic drug candidates to support clinical trials, regulatory submission, and product commercialization. This position presents an opportunity to lead dynamic teams comprised mainly of process chemists, analytical chemists, and engineers. Top candidates for this position will be expected to:

  • Possess experience leading multiple drug substance and drug product teams through Common Technology Document (CTD) authoring, NDA submission, Pre-approval inspection (PAI) readiness of manufacturing sites, and Country-specific Response to Questions (RtQ) approaches leading to successful submissions

  • Possess fluent knowledge of unit operation design, process modeling, process equipment selection, conducting data rich experiments, PAT utilization in the laboratory and production facilities, and scale-up methodologies with a drive to challenge existing methods; create and apply groundbreaking technology and novel platforms within a time constrained environment

  • Exhibit familiarity and knowledge of synthetic organic chemistry, synthetic strategy, and synthetic route development

  • Demonstrate high learning agility and the ability to exploit scientific concepts and methods across multiple disciplines (e.g., continuous processing, automated reaction engineering, and modeling and simulation); be able to apply these techniques in order to bring value across a portfolio of small molecule, oligonucleotide, and synthetic peptide modalities

  • Demonstrated ability to lead and/or supervise a cross-disciplinary team to evaluate and refine new manufacturing routes, manufacturing technologies, and practices to deliver a challenging portfolio

Demonstrate the ability to generate process (and property design) data based on a fundamental understanding of the underlying physical processes. Utilize advancements in process analytical technology (PAT) and modeling platforms to understand and lead experimental protocols

  • Plan and manage short term and long-term development activities. Develop and/or review technical agendas and timelines for project work. Recommend resource allocation to deliver projects according to plans, communicate progress and propose changes in timeline, objectives, or direction.

  • Collaborate with internal and external manufacturing partners to develop robust chemical processes that are readily amenable to efficient drug substance manufacturing
