How You Can Achieve More At Intellia:

Intellia is seeking a highly skilled and motivated DMPK (drug metabolism and pharmacokinetics) senior scientist to join our team. The primary responsibilities for this position will be to design and oversee preclinical to development DMPK studies to understand pharmacokinetics of CRISPR/Cas9 based therapeutics. This position will work closely with Toxicology, Research, Clinical, Regulatory, Project Management and other departments. This position will develop DMPK strategies that meet regulatory requirements and project goals. This position will build and develop quantitative tools to translate PK/PD relationship from preclinical to clinical using modeling and simulation. Additionally, this position will contribute to regulatory filing submissions.
  • Design and oversee internal/external preclinical and development DMPK studies to understand pharmacokinetics (PK) and absorption, metabolism, distribution, and excretion (ADME) of CRISPR/Cas9 based therapeutics
  • Represent DMPK as a subject matter expert to project teams ranging from preclinical to clinical
  • Responsible for the analysis, interpretation, integration, and reporting of DMPK data generated both internally and externally
  • Build and develop quantitative tools to translate PK/PD relationship from preclinical to clinical using modeling and simulation
  • Develop DMPK strategies that meet regulatory requirements and project goals
  • Author high quality Regulatory documents including INDs, CTAs and NDA filings. Partner with and support Toxicology, Research, Clinical, Regulatory, Project Management and other departments
  • Participate in the management of CROs supporting DMPK studies

About You:
  • Strong knowledge of drug metabolism, ADME concepts, pharmacokinetics, pharmacodynamic and bioanalytical principles is required.
  • Experience with CRISPR/Cas9, AAV, LNP, and ex vivo therapies is highly desirable
  • Required hands on experience on pharmacokinetic characterization using WinNonlin Phoenix.
  • Good to have in-depth hands-on modeling experience (e.g. , MATLAB/Simbiology, PK Sim, Simcyp, or, background using NONMEM to develop PK/PD models)
  • Experience leading regulatory enabling and early clinical DMPK
  • Industry experience at pharmaceutical/biotech companies or CROs, as higher desired.
  • Strong interpersonal and collaboration skills
  • Familiarity with regulatory submission including First-In-Human (FiH) Dosing plans
  • Understanding on GLP requirement, as highly desired.
