Senior Scientist, Formulations


We’re working with a pre-series A biotech developing a game-changing drug delivery platform! They are working on oral delivery of biologics for drugs that have only been available via injection. 


They are looking for a Senior Scientist to aid in the formulation of novel oral products (peptides, proteins, small molecule, etc). You’ll be an integral part of a small, multi-functional team, helping move products from Discovery through Pre-clinical phases, and support CMC, clinical and IND activities.



The qualified candidate brings hands-on expertise in state-of-the-art formulation production theories, principles, methods, and techniques for targeted delivery of proteins. You’ll help plan and execute developmental programs for a wide variety of pipeline products. You’ll maintain continual knowledge on the latest trends, methods, improvements, and functions of currently used pharmaceutical drugs.  


  • Formulation of orally delivered biologic drugs 

  • Execute appropriate investigational procedures that are pertinent to the reactions, composition, relationships, structure, and properties of the compounds and products

  • Analyze the material and chemical characteristics of the formulation substances using standard methods (titration, FT-IR, HPLC, ELISA, MSD, DSF, CD, DLS)

  • Identify new techniques, tools, and procedures to analyze formulations

  • Conduct in vitro and in vivo (small animal) studies to test formulations

  • Support the development of products through CMC by preparing quality assurance documentation, including formulation specifications


  • PhD in pharmaceutical science, biological/chemical engineering, or a related field 

  • 5+ years of hands-on industry experience in protein (or similar biologics) drug formulation

  • Deep knowledge about basic and advanced concepts in materials science and pharmaceutical development
