• Purification: Purify achiral small molecules (semi-prep scale) using reverse phase/normal phase systems such as Waters Auto purification System (Masslynx Software) and combi-flash system to support chemistry arrays and building blocks for oligo-chemistry work. Process includes analytical analysis and scale-up to prep purifications of final products.
Additional responsibilities:
• LC/MS method development and safety/compliance responsibilities.
Knowledge/Skills/Abilities (KSA's):
• BS/MS in analytical, organic, or medicinal chemistry with 1-5 years of experience in the analytical instrument/pharmaceutical industry.
