The successful candidate will be a member of the drug metabolism and pharmacokinetics (DMPK) Team and be involved in supporting in vivo studies of oligonucleotide-based drug candidates to understand the uptake of oligonucleotides into plasma and tissues as well as their metabolism.  The initial focus will be quantitation of drug levels in plasma and tissue.  This requires the candidate to be well versed and open to learning techniques employed in both bio-analytics and molecular biology, particularly analytical HPLC methods (HPLC-MS, HPLC-Fluorescence).  Experience with quantitative analysis and reporting of pharmacokinetic (PK) data is highly desired.

Position Requirements:

  • BS/MS/PhD in Biochemistry or Analytical Chemistry; BS with at least 5 - 8 years of industrial experience; Ph.D. with at least 3 years of industrial experience.
  • Experienced with analytical HPLC and in particular HPLC-MS.
  • Effective interpersonal skills, including both written and oral communication skills.
  • Self-motivated, ability to work independently while also willing to follow protocols, resourcefulness, and innovative thinking.
  • Strong analytical skills, highly attentive to details, and strong work ethic.
  • Ability to work within schedules and deadline.
  • Ability to multitask, prioritize, and function in a fast-paced, dynamic environment.
  • Hands-on experience with quantitative analysis and reporting of bioanalytical data.
  • Hands-on experience with sample extraction from tissue and plasma.
  • Ability to quickly learn new data-analysis software and efficiently manipulate large datasets in Excel.
  • Willingness to learn existing techniques outside one’s field and to introduce new techniques.
  • Strong work ethic, attention to details and good organization skills.
  • Will work on assignments that are complex in nature where considerable judgment and initiative are required in resolving problems and making recommendations.
  • Demonstrated ability to think critically and to work independently as well as in a team setting.

Skills desired:

  • Track record of developing or preforming in vitro DMPK assays.
  • Thorough understanding of PK concepts in theory and practice, experience with running PK simulations and modeling.
  • Proficient in WinNonLin Software, R-programming, and/or Python.
  • Experience with running and/or development of ELISA assays.
