    • In order to assure the development of appropriate testing methods and strategies, the individual is expected to exhibit/demonstrate an understanding of the behavior of molecules in a chemical and/or physical environment.
    • In a timely manner, validate/verify analytical methods (both chemical and physical) to meet development timelines with quality suitable for regulatory submission.
    • Develop physical methods for characterization of drug products – pH, viscosity/Rheology etc.
    • Develop/validate in vitro dissolution methods using different USP apparatus (I, II, IV etc.)
    • Write method validation protocols and reports
    • Perform stability testing of prototype, GLP, and GMP pharmaceutical products in a timely manner.
