Delivra Inc. is a Canadian biotechnology company with an innovative technology for the transdermal delivery of bioactive compounds. The DelivraTM base is currently used in several consumer product lines including LivReliefTM and LivSportTM. Delivra Inc. has recently opened a research and development laboratory in Charlottetown, PEI where the company will expand its knowledge of the current technology and further develop and optimize the Delivra formulation to create new and innovative transdermal products to meet the demands of existing and emerging markets.
The candidate will be responsible for maintaining general laboratory upkeep including record keeping and the preparation of general solutions and maintenance of equipment associated with the individual’s project(s). The candidate will be responsible for the timely completion of projects, providing summarized and detailed technical reports for each project and communicating findings to supervisors. Delivra Inc. has initiated several partnerships with various academic and federal (NRC) institutions, therefore the candidate must demonstrate the capacity to work in a broad collaborative environment.
As a post-doctoral fellow, the candidate is expected to complete projects with minimal direct supervision and demonstrate the ability to meet and overcome challenges during the course of experimental investigation. Technical expertise with plate-based in vitro assays including enzyme, permeation or another form of medium-throughput bioanalysis is required. Specific experience in synthetic (PAMPA or variants), cell culture (EpidermTM) or whole-tissue (Franz) permeation assay is a strong asset. In addition, knowledge of analytical chemistry, including the quantitative analysis of known and novel chemical entities using various methods is an asset.
