Job Title: FDA Analysis of Aerosol Spray Drug Products Fellowship
Job Number:
Organization: US Food and Drug Administration (FDA)
Posted: 1/6/2022
Type: Full-Time
Number of Openings: 1
Location: St. Louis,  MO    USA
Position Description: *Applications will be reviewed on a rolling- basis.

A research opportunity is currently available in the Office of Pharmaceutical Quality/ Office of Testing and Research (OTR) at the Center for Drug Evaluation and Research (CDER), Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in St. Louis, Missouri. CDER performs an essential public health task by making sure that safe and effective drugs are available to improve the health of people in the United States. As part of the FDA, CDER regulates over-the-counter and prescription drugs, including biological therapeutics and generic drugs. This work covers more than just medicines.

The project aims to better understand the physical properties of aerosol spray drug products by examining the characteristics of aerosol spray products, including formulation and performance. Analysis will focus on aerosols emitted after actuation from the aerosol spray cannisters, including particle size distribution, droplet evaporation, movement, and deposition. New methodology and data will be generated on the performance of aerosol sprays to support FDA regulatory research and activities.

Under the guidance of the mentor, the participant will develop aerosol/particle analytical methods to support regulatory activities. The participant will also learn to characterize physical characteristics of aerosol spray products using instrumentation such as laser diffraction, aerodynamic/scanning mobility particle sizers, cascade impactors, HPLC/MS, etc. and conduct product drug performance evaluations on characteristics critical for drug quality.

This program, administered by ORAU through its contract with the U.S. Department of Energy to manage the Oak Ridge Institute for Science and Education, was established through an interagency agreement between DOE and FDA. The initial appointment is for one year, but may be renewed upon recommendation of FDA contingent on the availability of funds. The participant will receive a monthly stipend commensurate with educational level and experience. Proof of health insurance is required for participation in this program. The appointment is full-time at FDA in the St. Louis, Missouri, area. Participants do not become employees of FDA, DOE or the program administrator, and there are no employment-related benefits.

Qualifications: The qualified candidate should have received a doctoral degree in one of the relevant fields, or be currently pursuing the degree with completion by the end of May 2022. Degree must have been received within the past five years.
