Job Details

Role Description

Pfizer is seeking a dynamic and collaborative experimental scientist for a Senior Scientist position contributing to ADME (absorption, disposition, metabolism and excretion) sciences in the in vitro enzymology and preclinical pharmacokinetics (PK) group.

The individual will be joining a dynamic group in Drug Metabolism, Department of Medicine Design, in support of the global Pfizer small molecule discovery research and development portfolio. The qualified candidate will be responsible for design and conduct of in vitro drug metabolism studies in support of drug discovery and development programs. The individual will be a member of matrix teams comprised of other ADME discipline scientists and led by a project representative, with expectations that integrated information resolves ADME issues and advances programs. The role includes mentorship of laboratory staff, responsibility for experimental conduct or oversight, and resource management relevant to our therapeutic areas. The individual will also be expected to advance scientific understanding, grow effective partnerships externally as well as internally to incorporate growing technological advances, and incorporate novel experimental approaches to address challenging drug disposition issues.

Responsibilities

  • Provide scientific leadership and enzymology knowledge or expertise for lab-based portfolio support and scientific innovation relevant to ADME sciences. Relevant areas include understanding of drug clearance, tissue binding and disposition, reaction phenotyping, enzyme kinetics, enzyme inhibition/induction or relevant DDI data generation, pharmacokinetic data analysis, and delivery or conduct of quality preliminary or definitive ADME studies in support of regulatory filings.

  • Working with modeling and simulation scientists, take scientific leadership for the predictions of clearance (IVIVE) and drug-drug interactions. This includes directing or undertaking physiologically based PK (PBPK) modeling strategies, which support and achieve project goals or address regulatory interactions.

  • Advise discovery and development project teams regarding approaches to understand and optimize dispositional attributes and to address any regulatory filings for clinical candidates.

  • Guide and develop laboratory-based scientists focused on the design and conduct of novel low- and medium-throughput in vitro assays to support discovery and definitive development assays for regulatory filings.

  • Review and approve DMPK study protocols, research reports, nonclinical ADME summaries, and abstracts/manuscripts for publication.

  • Direct original research aligned with the research priorities established by the Medicine Design Strategic Imperatives and Business Plan, as well as ongoing assay conduct to support the Pfizer discovery and development portfolio.

Basic Qualifications

  • PhD or equivalent with 0-3 years of relevant postdoctoral academic or industry experience in the scientific field. Candidates with a diverse scientific background (eg pharmaceutical sciences, drug metabolism, pharmacokinetics, biochemistry, chemistry, biology, biomedical sciences, or engineering) are encouraged to apply.

  • A keen interest in growing knowledge and optimizing dispositional attributes of small organic molecules through ADME science and technology is required.

  • Strong leadership and interpersonal skills as well as a track record of enthusiasm to deliver results in a fast-paced environment.

  • Highly effective written, presentation and verbal communication skills are essential. Recognition for creativity and innovation through strong publication/presentation record.

Position Requirements

  • Periodic travel will be required to other Pfizer sites (eg Cambridge, MA; La Jolla, CA) or to attend and present at scientific conferences.

  • Conduct of experiments will require the scientist to work in a laboratory environment.

Sunshine Act

Pfizer reports payments and other transfers of value to health care providers as required by federal and state transparency laws and implementing regulations. These laws and regulations require Pfizer to provide government agencies with information such as a health care provider’s name, address and the type of payments or other value received, generally for public disclosure. Subject to further legal review and statutory or regulatory clarification, which Pfizer intends to pursue, reimbursement of recruiting expenses for licensed physicians may constitute a reportable transfer of value under the federal transparency law commonly known as the Sunshine Act. Therefore, if you are a licensed physician who incurs recruiting expenses as a result of interviewing with Pfizer that we pay or reimburse, your name, address and the amount of payments made currently will be reported to the government.
