The FHCRC Biologics Quality Control laboratory performs in-process, release, and stability testing assays for viral vector, recombinant proteins, and antibody-drug conjugate products manufactured in our GMP Biologics Processing Facility. The group also develops, transfers, and qualifies new analytical methods to support product characterization, process development, and product comparability studies. In addition, the group qualifies instrumentation and equipment to support these activities, and actively supports clinical trial regulatory submissions.
We are searching for a dynamic, organized, and detail-oriented laboratory professional to join our team.
The Biologics Quality Control Associate II performs analytical methods to support the characterization, release, and stability testing of protein-based therapeutics in a GMP laboratory environment. This position represents Biologics QC throughout the project lifecycle (i.e. initiation, implementation, sun setting) and continuously interacts with laboratory management, project sponsors and/or their representatives. The position performs analytical methods such as SDS-PAGE, IEF, HPLC, ELISAs, and endotoxin, and conducts aseptic procedures ranging from routine environmental monitoring to fill/finish of final products. This position must complete all activities precisely/accurately, and document results appropriately. Additional laboratory responsibilities may include development and transfer of analytical methods to/from internal and external partners. Administrative duties include creation/revision of laboratory quality systems and standard operating procedures, environmental/stability/contract laboratory testing data management and trending, and routine maintenance of the lab to ensure a continued state of regulatory compliance.
