• Support discovery, pre-clinical, and clinical development studies (in vitro and in vivo) to aid drug candidate progression
• Assure quality standard guidelines and safe work practices are applied while working in the laboratories

Basic Requirements:

• Degree in Chemistry/Biochemistry/Biology/Pharmaceutical Sciences with experience in drug discovery, or a higher degree with research experience relevant to drug metabolism or mass spectrometry science
• PhD with 0+ years, MS with 0 – 5+ years, or BS with 5 – 10+ years of relevant experience
• Title and salary will be commensurate with experience

The ideal candidate will draw from any the following key skillsets:
• Familiarity with in vitro systems (hepatocytes, microsomes, S9 fraction, recombinant enzymes)
• Hands-on experience in operation, maintenance, and troubleshooting of state-of-the-art high resolution orbitrap and inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometers
• Experience with HPLC/UPLC, ion pairing and size exclusion chromatography
• Prior experience with either oligonucleotide and/or intact protein analysis is desired but not required
• Excellent oral and written communication skills
• Careful attention to detail, exceptional organizational skills and ability to multitask
