Pharmaceutical QC experience, following GLP / GMP regulations, would be a strong advantage, though candidates will be considered from other settings such as Food, Cosmetics, Diagnostics or Medical Device testing. If you have experience of pharmacopoeia testing of raw materials this would be a bonus. You must have a good understanding of chromatography techniques like HPLC and GC and will need to have the ambition to progress a long-term career in the lab.
