Responsibilities

The Scientist/Sr. Scientist will use their skills and knowledge to optimize biopharmaceuticals and vaccines fermentation processes. The incumbent will participate in large molecule process development efforts (e.g., enzymes, vaccines, monoclonal antibodies etc.). S/He should be able to plan, perform, interpret and report results of scientific experiments. Design, review and make recommended changes to scientific protocols and procedures. This position will be responsible for implementing R&D strategies to optimize biological processes. This position is laboratory-based and will require routine interaction with scientists across multiple discovery and core research laboratories at Elanco. The incumbent scientist will be expected to support multiple projects at any given time. The ability to independently execute experiments, coupled with a "can do" attitude, is a must

Functions, Duties, Task:

  • Support process development group with project-related activity such as microbial fermentation, cell culture, seed creation etc.

  • Plan, execute and coordinate daily and weekly work schedule. Design, review and make recommended changes to scientific protocols and procedures.

  • Maintain infrastructure of laboratory and an organized, clean and safe working environment.

  • Schedule and perform maintenance of instruments/equipment. Evaluate new laboratory equipment.

  • Use proper safety equipment and follow appropriate safety procedures. Takes responsibility for proper handling and disposal of biohazard materials and/or hazardous chemicals.

  • Present results during team, project or unit meetings.

  • Write reports, prepare SOPs/working procedures. Support preparation of tech transfer and registration documents.

  • Perform data analysis and use results for the design of next experiment.

  • Perform troubleshooting activities.

  • Collaborate with other associates and scientists to facilitate knowledge exchange. Train and coach peers.

  • Participate in project teams within the function.

  • Work according to, and eventually ensure the compliance with, external and internal guidelines (e.g. SOP's, GxP, HSE, and AW).

  • Supporting other technical development functions (e.g. analytical, DSP and formulation).

  • Support projects from development to tech transfer in M&Q.

  • Keep abreast of scientific literature in the field and able to provide expertise in evaluation of new platform technologies.

  • When required, should be able to come during night/weekend and occasionally required to stay longer hours to support project work
