Applied Molecular Transport (AMT) is currently growing its R&D organization to enable various aspects of its CMC and product development activities required to bring AMT technology-enabled biopharmaceuticals to clinical testing. AMT’s novel, proprietary technology platform allows for the efficient delivery of biopharmaceuticals across the intestinal epithelium; the critical step that has previously evaded the pharmaceutical industry in its efforts to identify commercially viable oral dosage forms for therapeutic peptides and proteins. AMT’s approach is based on solid scientific principles related to the biology of the GI tract. The company’s goal is to develop biopharmaceuticals that by their oral delivery will enable, or at the very least enhance, previously unappreciated biological outcomes for agents delivered by the oral-GI route.
An immediate opening exists for a Sr. Scientist, Protein Formulation Development in the Pharmaceutical Development function, reporting to the functional area Head.
The primary focus of the position will be executing unique methods required for protein formulation, characterization and stability testing. The position will characterize the biological activity and fate of AMT’s oral protein drug products in the developed formulation. The successful candidate can also work directly with vendors or contract laboratories (CROs), supporting drug development, methods and technology transfer.
This position requires candidates to present a scientific presentation in a seminar during the interview.
Applicants are expected to include a cover letter highlighting how their qualifications match our needs.
