SCIENTIST

Bristol-Myers Squibb is a global biopharmaceutical company whose mission is to discover, develop and deliver innovative medicines that help patients prevail over serious diseases.
One shared journey is moving us forward at Bristol-Myers Squibb.
Around the world, we are passionate about making an impact on the lives of patients with serious disease.
Empowered to apply our individual talents and ideas so that we can learn and grow together.
And driven to make a difference, from innovative research to hands-on community support.
Bristol-Myers Squibb recognizes the importance of balance and flexibility in our work environment.
We offer a wide variety of competitive benefits, services and programs that provide our employees the resources to pursue their goals, both at work and in their personal lives.
Among our several NJ locations, our Hopewell and Bloomsbury sites are key components of the Biologics Network Strategy, with available Process Development and Analytical Development & Testing opportunities to support the innovating biologics under development.
In the Molecular and Analytical Development group of BMS, we are a world-class Mass Spectrometry and Biophysics Center of Excellence to support the development of life-saving medicines in immuno-oncology and other therapeutic areas.
We specialize in biologics development using state of the art biophysical methods to decipher the structural complexities of biological molecules.
We foster an innovative and collaborative environment that values and recognizes diversity of contributions, and pushing the limits of technology for analyzing monoclonal antibodies, fusion proteins, and other novel scaffolds progressing in clinical trials for unmet medical needs.
The Molecular and Analytical Development group is seeking a highly motivated and creative Biophysical Scientist to analyze structure, stability, and post-translational modifications to support development of biopharmaceuticals, and be part of the leadership position of BMS in Immuno-Oncology.
This individual is also expected to push the limits of advanced biophysical techniques for characterization of fusion proteins, therapeutic monoclonal antibodies and other protein modalities.
These techniques include, but are not limited to:
Spectroscopy (UV/VIS, CD, fluorescence, FTIR, Raman)Microscopy (FTIR, Raman, AFM) Flow-based protein particulate imaging and enumeration Light obscuration and other protein particulate characterization/enumeration techniquesAnalytical ultracentrifugation Calorimetry (DSC, ITC) Chromatography (SEC, IEX, RP) Capillary electrophoresis (iCIEF, SDS-CGE) Additional responsibilities include:
Defining critical quality attributes and understanding protein post-translational modifications including degradation pathways in in-vitro systemsExpected to publish novel findings in journals and present scientific data at internal and external conferencesMatrix team leadershipWork independently and in collaboration with colleagues within analytical and across various functional areas to support programs from clinical development through registrational studiesInterface and collaborate with multi-disciplinary teams in a high paced analytical laboratory environment Qualifications We look for scientists who are truly inspired by our mission and who would share our passion for collaborative and entrepreneurial work culture.
Because we know that employees are key to our success in bringing novel cancer medicines to patients, we are committed to providing employees with benefits that allow them to bring their best.

Don't Be Fooled

The fraudster will send a check to the victim who has accepted a job. The check can be for multiple reasons such as signing bonus, supplies, etc. The victim will be instructed to deposit the check and use the money for any of these reasons and then instructed to send the remaining funds to the fraudster. The check will bounce and the victim is left responsible.
