Role Summary: MAb Applications is a section within the Downstream Bioprocessing Department (~90 people) which belong to the Global BioProcess R&D (~500 people). The section is based in Uppsala and consists of ~15 highly skilled research engineers and scientists all with a solid background in bioanalysis and downstream purification. We are now looking for a Scientist that can strengthen the section with respect to mechanistical modelling of downstream chromatography.
Essential Responsibilities: The section is responsible for designing downstream processes for monoclonal antibodies and related molecules and is also contributing to the development of new resins based on structure function relationships. Statistical modelling together with deep chromatographic understanding are two cornerstones in our daily work.
The Scientist is expected to
Perform mechanistic modelling of downstream unit operations with focus on chromatographic separations, including continuous chromatography.
Provide guidance to resin development and research projects as well as support in application work.
Lead customer interactions regarding fundamental understanding of the mechanistic foundations of chromatography.
Act as mentor and support to co-workers.
Act as activity leader in project work.
Independently report accomplished tasks in writing or orally
Contribute to scientific presence presenting posters and orals at conferences.
