The Pharmacokinetic Sciences (PKS) Department within the Novartis Institutes for Biomedical Research (NIBR) in Cambridge, Massachusetts is looking for a laboratory -based biotransformation scientist to join their global biotransformation team (with groups in Europe and North America) to strengthen the department’s metabolite profiling and identification capabilities for new modalities such as antibody drug conjugates, oligonucleotides, or peptides. Additionally, knowledge of small molecule biotransformation would be considered advantageous. As a biotransformation scientist working on new modalities, you will develop state-of-the-art analytical methodologies using high resolution mass spectrometry and be familiar with the chromatography, structure elucidation, and data processing requirements needed to characterize metabolites of intact proteins, oligonucleotides, and peptides. You will plan and execute tailored experiments, maintain the laboratory environment/instruments, and support the development of new technologies. You will also be expected to interact with and present your findings in team meetings, document your findings, and prepare internal reports. As the successful candidate you will be adaptable, independently motivated, and challenge driven with a history that demonstrates strong interpersonal skills that encourage successful collaborative working relationships. In this role, you will work in a team environment to support programs through the conduct of drug metabolism studies designed to understand ADME properties, metabolite identification, biotransformation pathways, and routes of elimination for a diverse portfolio of therapeutic modalities. Therefore, the ideal candidate should have a good understanding of the drug discovery/development process and have a keen interest in implementing/optimizing new experimental methods for the analysis of new modalities. Furthermore, depending on the seniority of the successful candidate, you will represent the ADME line function in PKS sub-teams and project teams, collaborate in the preparation of external publications, and contribute to registration documents.
