UNITY Biotechnology craves an exceptional and highly motivated individual to lead the Formulation Development group. Reporting to the Head of Technical Operations, you will oversee formulation activities across a dynamic (dare we say “industry-changing?”) development space and develop reliable and cost-effective outsourcing strategies for late phase drug product development. You have strong leadership skills, an extensive background in sterile injectable products (parental and/or IVT administration), and are well versed in late-stage pharmaceutical development of small molecules.

What You’ll Do

  • Work closely with other senior members of the Technical Operations group to evaluate and select pharmaceutical development and manufacturing CROs and CMOs that are aligned with UNITY’s development strategy
  • Spearhead project leadership and management of multiple drug product CMOs/CROs, including technology transfers and person-in-plant as part of outsourcing oversight
  • Prepare and oversee future drug product registration and validation batches
  • Continually manage relationships with drug product CMOs/CROs to ensure appropriate resources dedicated to UNITY projects
  • Lead contract negotiations for drug product development activities at CMOs/CROs to ensure cost projection well aligned with UNITY’s budgetary estimates
  • Lead CMC meetings and serve as the Operations Group representative on internal, multidisciplinary project teams
  • We’re not saying we spontaneously erupt into full-voice sea shanties, but we’re not not saying it either
  • Review and approve master batch records, stability, and development reports for GMP activities
  • Author regulatory documents, including IND, IND amendment, NDA, and technical reports
  • Collaborate brilliantly with internal and external quality control, quality assurance, and regulatory personnel to resolve technical issues or deviations
  • Control alignment and understanding of phase-appropriate analytical and quality requirements for GMP drug products
  • Travel (up to 15% of your time) to foreign and domestics contractors for scientific project management and monitoring of critical project activities
