Scientist


The Opportunity

We are seeking a highly-motivated Scientist to join our process development team. You will play a key role in the development of processes for optimising expression and quality of recombinant proteins in mammalian cell culture. The role of Scientist in the Cell Culture & Purification Development department requires technical expertise in mammalian cell culture process development where you will apply your cell culture skills to develop processes suitable for manufacture of recombinant proteins.

 

The Role

Reporting into the Manager, Cell Culture & Purification, you will be responsible for:

  • Cell culture process design, development and optimisation with guidance from the Senior Scientist or the Manager of Cell Culture and Purification
  • Generation of accurate, reliable data to support upstream process development
  • Assisting with scale up, optimisation and tech transfer activities to the pilot scale operations group and to commercial manufacturing sites
  • General laboratory housekeeping duties as assigned, and must maintain Laboratories and facilities to GSP & regulatory standards.
  • Ensuring high safety standards are adhered to as governed by local, state and federal regulations, laws and policies as well as CSL’s policies and directives. Ensuring compliance with OGTR guidelines.

To be successful

We’re looking for a dynamic applicant who demonstrates the following qualifications and skills:

  • Bachelor of Science or Chemical Engineering with at least three years’ experience in a bioprocess development field.  It is an advantage if you have specific experience relating to mammalian cell culture. Alternatively skills and experience associated with related process development disciplines including microbial cultures, application of bioreactor analytical techniques or pilot scale operations are also valued.
  • Proven ability to be independent and self-motivated, demonstrating flexibility to flourish in a fast paced environment
  • Understands new scientific concepts and ideas
  • Aptitude for statistical analysis and experimental design
  • Experience in fermentation and/or cell culture process development disciplines
  • Excellent grasp of sterile techniques
