The position will entail long-term planning and daily execution of the following tasks:

  • Formulation of immunomodulatory organic molecules (in solution or lyophilized) for preclinical or early clinical studies;
  • Biological and physicochemical characterization of new formulations;
  • Strategic formulation based on desired therapeutic administration route in preclinical or early clinical studies (IP, IV, transdermal, intranasal, etc.);
  • Method development for the preparation, lyophilization, re-suspension, analytical characterization and scale-up of new formulations;
  • Designing, performing and monitoring in vitro and in vivo studies to characterize new formulations in preclinical or early clinical studies;
  • Adapting existing pharmacologic formulations to incorporate new components;
  • Proposing and assessing various drug-delivery vehicles such as liposomes, dendrimers, cell-penetrating peptides, microparticles and nanoparticles, microcapsules and nanocapsules, etc.
  • Liaising with CROs for out-sourcing of formulation tasks (safety studies, pilot-scale GMP synthesis, animal PD/PK studies, etc.); 
  • Daily collaboration with the Company’s chemists and biologists;
  • Close collaboration with the Company’s QA & Regulatory Affairs manager for all regulatory affairs issues (ANSM, EMA, FDA, etc.);
  • Keeping abreast of new developments in drug formulation (industry activity, clinical trials, patents and scientific literature);
  • Periodic contributions to scientific publications and/or presentations (patents, articles, conference posters, etc.).

About the candidate:

The ideal candidate will have at least 10 years of biotech/pharma industry experience in drug formulation; possess a solid understanding of the drug-development process, including in vivo preclinical studies; and have worked on formulation in drug development programs from early preclinical research into early clinical development


  • A PhD in Chemistry, Biochemistry or Pharmacology;
  • At least 10 years of industry experience in drug development;
  • Have worked on formulation of at least two drug candidates from early discovery up through Phase I or later;
  • A solid list of authored scientific publications and presentations, including patents, while in industry; 
  • Flexibility to adapt to the dynamic environment of a small drug-development company;
  • Fluency in written and spoken English;
  • Strong interpersonal, presentation and writing skills;
  • Independent but also a team player.

About InvivoGen Therapeutics:

InvivoGen Therapeutics is a rapidly expanding subsidiary of InvivoGen that seeks to leverage the Parent Company’s expertise in innate immune biology to develop novel treatments from discovery up to the early clinical stage. The Company recently completed a Phase I trial in gene therapy for pancreatic cancer, which it will follow up with a Phase II trial in mid-2016, and is planning a separate Phase I trial in immuno-oncology for pancreatic cancer in the same year. Both InvivoGen Therapeutics and its parent company, InvivoGen, are privately held and are based in San Diego (USA) & Toulouse (France).
