Open Position

Food and Drug Chemist


We are seeking a Chemist for a non-laboratory position to work in our Washington, D.C. Office.  This individual will work closely with our attorneys and other staff scientists to assess the regulatory status and health and safety considerations related to various products intended for use in food, drugs, medical devices, and related applications.  Responsibilities include assisting in the advisement of steps that can be taken to attain appropriate regulatory status, including assisting in the preparation of submissions and dossiers to regulatory agencies in the United States (such as FDA, EPA, and OSHA) and their sister agencies throughout the world.  This is not an intellectual property position.

The ideal candidate will be able to interpret complex analytical data and should have a strong proficiency in mathematics.  Expertise in any area of non-theoretical chemistry will be considered, though 5+ years of experience in polymer, organic, or analytical chemistry is a positive.  A background in the food, chemical, or packaging industry, and experience with FDA regulations, is a plus.  Must be able to multi-task, work effectively with others, and write clearly.  Graduate Degree in Chemistry is required; Ph.D. preferred but not required.

We offer an excellent benefit package, bonus plan, and salary commensurate with experience. E.O.E.
