Development Chemist

An exciting opportunity has come up for a Development Chemist to join a global pharmaceutical company at their site in Northumberland on a permanent basis. This is a great time to join a growing company working on a number of different projects. As Development Chemist, you will identify and evaluate synthetic routes to target molecules, taking early stage development work and applying it to larger scale commercial processes.

Your role will include the following:

• Design synthetic routes for new products or transformations.

• Carry out laboratory investigations to design processes, solve processing problems and make improvements to processes.

• Provide technical information in support of process changes.

• Carry out evaluations of alternative raw material sources.

• Carry out synthesis of compounds required as analytical reference standards.

• Carry out process scale up studies.

• Provide information on processes and properties of materials to allow effective process engineering design.

• Maintain high standards of safety and housekeeping in the laboratory areas.

Candidates will ideally be educated to PhD level (or equivalent) in organic or synthetic chemistry, or a related discipline with considerable experience in organic synthesis. Experience of working in a GMP or regulated environment would certainly be an advantage, but isn’t a requirement.

Overall this is a great opportunity to join an established company, in a permanent development chemist role. Apply now with your CV, and feel free to contact Tom Kirkpatrick at CY Partners.
