Job Description

The Global Owner of Process Modelling role is accountable for developing a global center of excellence for modelling and scale-up of processes and systems based on CSL Behring engineering standards, current regulations, and industry standards and practices for biopharmaceutical manufacturing. This leader will be responsible for developing capabilities for process modelling and simulations enabling optimization of biopharmaceutical production at multiple sites across a global network. This role will have a wide focus requiring an understanding of how to integrate the activities of numerous areas of technical, operational, and business expertise and align them toward accomplishing common goals.

  • Develop and maintain a global center of excellence with best practices, strategies and framework enabling modelling, simulation and scale-up of processes and systems (within the scope of technology transfer and validation) based on current regulations, industry standards and industry practices for biopharmaceutical products.
  • Through collaboration with R&D and Process Engineering, apply a science-based approach to process modelling with an understanding of how the systems and equipment enable and control the process. Enable data-based evaluation of options to implement process robustness improvements, innovative technologies and new processes/systems at commercial facilities
  • Apply Lean Six Sigma approaches, in alignment with the End-2-End Operational Excellence framework, to drive efficiency biopharmaceutical processes by establishing practices that enable process and system optimization.
  • Lead the staff who will conduct process scaling and optimization simulations based on current process and facility knowledge to support supply chain network strategy decisions and subsequent technology transfers.
