    • Multiscale Modeling of Biotherapeutics and Vaccines
      Brief description: The Preformulation-Predictive Sciences group develops creative and novel solutions to address significant unmet needs in the biopharmaceutical drug product development space. The Preformulation organization is continuing to build key scientific expertise in computational modeling of key molecular and macroscopic protein processes. Thus, we are seeking a highly motivated and driven postdoctoral individual that will lead the development of the next-generation computational and statistical tools to predict and mitigate physical instability challenges in protein-based formulations. The successful candidate will work in an interdisciplinary environment, contributing to cross-functional teams and gaining insight into many aspects of biotherapeutic and vaccine discovery, development and manufacturing. The Postdoctoral Fellow is expected to author scientific papers on their research and present novel findings at scientific conferences.
    • Next-Generation Predictive Technology
      Brief description: We are looking for a highly driven and motivated post-doctoral scholar who will spearhead transformative innovations in machine and deep learning in the biopharmaceutical drug product development space. The advent of machine learning has created exciting new opportunities to improve drug products and positively impact the lives of patients. The integration of these new data technologies into the R&D landscape requires further study. The scholar will work in a highly dynamic environment at the interface of drug product development and data science. The scholar will develop innovative predictive solutions to pressing problems encountered in drug development of next-generation therapies for cancer, infectious diseases, and other areas.
