We have an exciting opening for a Clinical Pharmacology Lead. Pfizer is a leader in model-based drug development and you will be an integral member of the Pfizer Clinical Pharmacology team, supporting late stage programs in the Internal Medicine therapy area. The colleague will initially work under the guidance of an experienced Clinical Pharmacology Lead to provide required clinical pharmacology inputs on drug development projects, and is expected to eventually grow into the role of an independent Clinical Pharmacology Lead. The successful candidate will have strong quantitative pharmacology skills with hands-on experience in the implementation of common software tools (e.g., NONMEM, R, SAS, WinBUGS) for PK and PK/PD analyses. Self-motivation, strong scientific reasoning and communication (both verbal and written) skills, and the ability to function effectively in a team environment are highly desirable.
With appropriate mentorship, the candidate will support late-stage development projects in Internal Medicine, including developing the clinical pharmacology plan, designing clinical pharmacology and clinical studies, establishing PK/PD plans, performing PK/PD modeling/simulation and model-based meta-analysis, interpreting and integrating results to inform drug development decisions, writing clinical pharmacology sections of the clinical study reports and regulatory submission documents (briefing book, NDA, MAA, etc.). The candidate will work closely with multidisciplinary teams including clinicians, statisticians, pharmacometricians, clinical assay and clinical operations colleagues. The candidate will also be expected to influence the environment outside of Pfizer through methods such as publications and presentations.
PhD with 0, PharmD with 1 year, or MS with 3+ years of drug development experience in clinical pharmacology and/or clinical PK/PD and/or pharmacometrics.
Strong quantitative skills and expertise (e.g. experience in population modeling, literature meta-analyses, and clinical trial simulations) with hands-on implementation of tools such as NONMEM, R, SAS, or WinBUGS for data analysis and handling.
Excellent written and verbal communication skills.
Post-doctoral training in quantitative clinical pharmacology in academic, industry, or regulatory setting.
