To work in global cross functional project teams providing expertise in formulation, tech transfer and process improvements among other things. Then perhaps this is the next step for you.

Main duties:
As a Principal Scientist you will work in the Global Technical Operations (GTO) OTC organization with various projects such as reformulation, process changes, technical transfers, compliance issues and issues connected to production needing technical input. You will act as a Technical lead in projects needing technical development or input. As this is a global organization, so are your partners and colleagues such as PM, QA, RA and procurement.

You have a BSc or MSC within relevant chemistry or pharmaceutical area. Your knowledge is wide in pharmaceutical dosage forms, especially solids formulation. You are fluent in English both orally and in writing.

You enjoy collaborating and building relationships in your daily work, both in person and virtually as most of your contacts will be global.
