As Director, Regulatory Affairs CMC you will play a key role in our highly dynamic organization.

You will have the unique opportunity to grow and shape the Regulatory function of a rapid-growth biotech startup.

You will formulate and lead innovative CMC regulatory strategies for assigned development projects, represent Global Regulatory Affairs CMC on interdisciplinary project teams, and present comprehensive risk assessment and mitigation plans for potential regulatory issues to successfully influence key stakeholders.
