As a Biologics Manufacturing Supervisor, you schedule, plan, coordinate, and supervise downstream production activities. You not only oversee the downstream manufacturing staff but are very hands-on in the purification operations. Through on-the-floor observation, direction, and participation, you ensure that production is maintained in full cGMP compliance. You carefully perform purification operations, such as column chromatography, nanofiltration, tangential flow filtration, and aseptic bulk fills.

Under your excellent leadership, your team is inspired to take pride in the quality of their work. Your style of management fosters teamwork, respect, accountability, and trust. You keep up-to-date and accurate cGMP documentation, regularly reviewing the batch production records (BPRs), standard operating procedures (SOPs), and batch history records (BHRs). To ensure cGMP compliance, you follow through on any needed corrective actions. You ensure that all manufacturing operations comply with both internal and external regulations.

Working closely with supporting departments, you coordinate manufacturing, validation, and maintenance activities. You oversee the setup of new manufacturing processes and critical equipment. Strategically, you identify the technical, procedural, and equipment issues that hinder production and compliance. You assist with any investigations, inspections, and audits. Proactively, you report any issues to the appropriate leadership. You get great satisfaction from working to improve the quality of life for people suffering from life-threatening diseases!


  • Bachelor's degree or equivalent in a science field such as biology, biotechnology, or chemical engineering and 3+ years of cGMP experience
  • Supervisory Experience is a must
