Please use this link to apply:

The Senior Scientist, Global Clinical Pharmacology (GCP), Oncology (TA) role is to apply and promote Clinical Pharmacology knowledge, including pharmacokinetics/pharmacodynamics analyses and principles of model-based drug development in the programs for all stages of drug development ranging from pre-New Molecular Entity (NME) declaration through Post-Marketing support, in collaboration with various stakeholders, QS-Project Matrix teams, Clinical Pharmacology Leader, and Pharmacometrics Leader. The Senior Scientist can also function as Clinical Pharmacology Leader on the Compound Development Team (CDT) and execute the day-to-day operations for the clinical pharmacology aspects of the assigned programs. The Senior Scientist, Global Clinical Pharmacology, Oncology TA will:

  * Contribute to overall compound development via application of quantitative methods to integrate knowledge of PK, PD, patient characteristics, disease states, and drug-drug interactions to optimize dose selection, dosage regimens and study designs throughout drug development. With assistance from senior members, the Senior Scientist will translate quantitative knowledge into strategic opportunities with key stake holders to drive development along the model-based drug development principles.
  * Collaborate with Pharmacometrics (PM) Leaders on modeling and simulation activities in drug development programs. Perform and/or liaise for modeling and simulation analysis of preclinical-clinical data, translational PK/PD data, up to first-in-human (FIH) and if applicable beyond FIH (dose/exposure-response analyses to guide dose regimen from pre-proof of concept (POC) and POC studies
