+ Supports the clinical trial conduct within scope of the Clinical Assay Group responsibilities, including development and review of documents and processes such as CRF and data setup, clinical site lab manual, sample management & reconciliation, bioanalytical study planning & reporting, budgeting & invoicing, compliance with clinical SOPs & policies, and regulatory inspection readiness & conduct.

+ Contributes to the development of Best Practices, processes, templates, and policies.

+ Maintains up-to-date knowledge of current and novel chromatographic separation/mass spectrometry based detection, ligand binding technologies & techniques or bioanalytical techniques commonly used for Biomarkers (as relevant to the role), global regulatory guidances & expectations, and industry best practices.



**Qualifications:**



+ BASIC QUALIFICATIONS



PhD with 5+ years or M.S. with 8+ years of industry or bioanalytical experience with PK and/or immunogenicity assay and biomarker assay development, validation, and sample analyses using

chromatographic/mass spectrometry, ligand binding (ELISA and ECL) or other methodologies like flow

cytometry, FISH and etc. (as relevant to the role).

Working knowledge of GxP regulations governing conduct of clinical trials and regulatory guidance and

expectations relevant to regulated bioanalysis.

Subject matter expert in regulated bioanalysis small organic molecules or Biologics and understanding of

bioanalytical techniques commonly used for Biomarkers.
