Full time

The Preclinical Pharmacokinetics and Pharmacodynamics (PPK/PD) group is seeking a knowledgeable PPK (or Pharmacology) scientist. We need someone proficient in the application of PK/PD to describe and understand the pharmacology/biology of therapeutic proteins. This key role will represent the group on cross-functional discovery projects teams. They will also advocate for the use of quantitative approaches to describe the relationship between the known physiology and the observed PK/PD of candidate drug molecules. We are looking for someone who can provide innovative PK and PK/PD input into early preclinical in-vivo studies, collaborating with scientific staff performing these studies. Additionally, preparing analyses to internal project teams and potentially senior management is in scope.

As the PPK/PD Scientist, a typical day might include the following:

- Proactively communicating project team inquiries, requests, and expectations from the Project Teams to subordinates and management

- Conducting and reporting PK and PK/PD analyses using data derived from preclinical studies

- Working with Toxicology, Pathology, Clinical Pharmacology (CP) and Quantitative Pharmacology (modeling & simulation) functions, within the Drug Safety and Pharmacometrics (DSP) Department

- Maintaining current knowledge of relevant scientific literature including regulatory guidance and standard methodologies as they pertain to PPK/PD

- You are an excellent communicator with presentation and leadership skills

- You demonstrate scientific creativity with a willingness to propose innovative solutions

- We share a passion for science and are data-driven throughout research processes

To be considered for this opportunity, you must have a PhD in Pharmacology, Pharmacokinetics, Biology/Molecular Biology, or Biochemistry combined with 0-4 years of relevant confirmed experience. Previous experience with protein/monoclonal antibody therapeutics in one or more of the following therapeutic areas; oncology, inflammation/immunology, metabolism, infectious disease or ophthalmology is helpful. An in-depth theoretical and applied understanding of PK and PD and demonstrates the ability to plan, coordinate, lead all aspects of, and analyze PK/PD studied data is needed. Experience in relevant PK/PD software applications (eg. WinNonLin) and drafting PK reports and IND's is desirable but not required.
