Scientist / Senior Scientist - Process Development
Novome is building genetically engineered microbial medicines (GEMMs) that perform defined activities in the human gut to treat chronic diseases. We’ve developed the first platform for controlled colonization of the gut with engineered therapeutic bacteria. Our recent $33M Series A funding will bring our lead program in hyperoxaluria into the clinic and expand our platform to additional disease areas.
We are currently seeking an experienced professional to serve as a leader in process development to advance our early-stage pipeline into the preclinical setting. This role will be cross functional, engaging with teams across research and development, process development, and manufacturing. A successful candidate will contribute to advancing lead strains, small and large-scale fermentation, generation of cell banks, process optimization, method development, analytical testing, and related CMC activities. Previous experience with fermentation of microbes is required. S/he will serve as a liaison between R&D functions and process development, bridging the functional areas to ensure the development of robust strains, assays, methods, and culture processes. This person will have a multi-faceted skillset, and will not be afraid to be an individual contributor while also having the experience to lead a team.
Knowledge of GMP environment and previous experience working with CMO is highly desirable. Prior experience developing a microbial process and transferring that process to either the manufacturing or quality setting is desirable. In addition, prior experience advancing an asset to the clinical setting and an understanding of CMC deliverables will be a valuable attribute.
