Do you have aPhD in chemistry and a passion for the development of solid dose pharmaceuticals? A brand new 12-month contract has been created in Sandwich, Kent, to investigate how the composition and solid-form properties of pharmaceutical products can affect nitrosamine formation. Paying up to £28 an hour, full details on application where you can find out more about this unique and exciting opportunity.

Responsibilities, Experience & Skills

- Design and execute accelerated stability studies and use statistical and kinetic modelling approaches to analyse the data and understand the effect of factors of temperature and humidity.
- Develop and apply quantitative trace analytical methods, especially LCMS, and apply a range of physical characterization techniques (such as laser diffraction, PXRD) as necessary.
- Effectively collaborate with project team members in a multidisciplinary environment (e.g. from analytical chemistry, material science, formulation science and organic chemistry), including presenting data at project team meetings, critically reviewing experimental data and be actively involved in solving technical challenges.
- Provide presentations, training and advice to others to share learnings and promote increased scientific and technical understanding around their area of expertise.
- Devise creative solutions for reducing nitrosamine formation and develop experimental protocols to critically evaluate their effectiveness.
- Maintain written records of experimental work in accordance with GLP/GMP and departmental philosophies.

. Experience in analytical and/or pharmaceutical chemistry.
. Developing and applying quantitative trace analytical methods
. Running quantitative high sensitivity LC-MS methods
. Studying composition and solid form properties and stability.
. Experience in contributing to the authoring external technical publications.
. Knowledgeable in the use of diverse computational, modelling and simulation tools.

Honours or master’s degree in chemistry, Analytical Chemistry or a related discipline with a high degree classification (e.g. equivalent of U.K. 1st or 2nd class). PhD degree in Chemistry, Analytical Chemistry, Pharmaceutical Sciences, Chemical Engineering, Material Science, or a related field.
