You will be part of a team developing innovative medicines that will improve the lives of patients around the world.
PK/PD & Pharmacometrics scientists are functional leaders in research and development throughout the value chain from preclinical lead molecule identification to clinical post-drug approval. Our goal is to identify and develop the right drug with the right dose for the right patient through the model-informed paradigm of drug research and development. You will apply PK/PD and pharmacometric approaches to translate from preclinical to the clinical setting by integrating data from multiple subject areas. We need a dynamic and driven scientist who is able to:
Conduct PK/PD modeling and simulation to inform drug development programs.

Mentor other scientists as well as interact, guide and collaborate with academia.
Represent the group to increase visibility externally, through key publications, active leadership in key scientific organizations, industry trade groups, or consortia.
Additional Skills/Preferences :
While experience from industry, regulatory, consulting or academia with exposure to industry is advantageous, we are also looking for hardworking emerging professionals.
Knowledge of relevant simulation software (e.g. NONMEM, Monolix, R, S-Plus, Phoenix NLME, MATLAB, Berkeley Madonna etc.)
Experience in pharmacokinetics, pharmacometrics, clinical pharmacology, population PK modeling, exposure-response modeling, clinical trial simulation
Communicate effectively and with confidence
PhD and/or MD in relevant scientific field such as pharmacokinetics, pharmacometrics, clinical pharmacology, biological/pharmaceutical sciences, bioengineering, biostatistics.
