  • You have good experience or understanding in the thermodynamic modeling of multicomponent systems
  • You have good laboratory analytical skills
  • You are a dedicated scientist interested in advancing materials science modeling in pharmaceutical research.
  • You are a creative and agile collaborator who enjoys skillful contributions in a cross-functional team setting to enable solving multi-faceted technical challenges.

Preferred skills and background:

  • Experience with thermodynamic models such as PC-SAFT, UNIFAC, and UNIQUAC.
  • Lab experience in solid and solution state characterization of materials or pharmaceutical formulations with techniques such as differential scanning calorimetry (DSC), XRPD, HPLC, and dynamic light scattering (DLS).
  • Experience with thermodynamic modeling of pharmaceutical formulations or processes.
  • Programming experience in e.g. Python, C++, or Matlab is a plus but not a must-have.
