VIEW JOBS 9/13/2019 12:00:00 AM 2019-12-12T00:00 Discovery Safety Associate Principal Scientist Waltham, MA Become a key player in the discovery of innovative oncology medicines One of the major challenges in the discovery of innovative medicines is to ensure they are safe enough to test their therapeutic concept in clinical trials to provide novel treatment for patients. Drug safety is assessed throughout the pharmaceutical R&D value chain, but it is during early drug discovery when we can actively design safety attributes into the future candidate drug. Our Oncology Safety Science and Discovery section takes on this challenge. As true drug hunting partners with our Oncology R&D unit, we contribute to the selection of novel drug targets, identification and optimization of new small molecule chemical series as well as other therapeutic molecules, and selection of novel candidate drugs. We work collaboratively and develop and apply cutting edge technologies such as tissue organoids, microphysiological systems, multi-omics, state-of-the-art imaging and artificial intelligence, and push the boundaries of predictive safety science with our mission in mind: to discover safe innovative medicines for the patients that need them. We are looking for a talented, experienced investigational toxicologist to join our team at the Boston US research site. Discovery Safety Associate Principal Scientist Job responsibilities include: * Be an integral member Oncology drug discovery project teams, and accountable for the delivery of the safety strategy for those projects. * Engage with experts across the organization to develop, refine and implement experimental strategies to ensure that teams make the right decisions regarding safety risks associated with the project. * Design project-specific investigational and mechanistic safety strategies to predict, assess and mitigate target- and chemistry-related safety risks and execute through internal and external experimental capabilities. * Develop innovative solutions and research proposals to pursue cutting edge science and technologies such as 3D microphysiological systems to optimize and influence safety assessment of novel drug targets. * Make a significant contribution to Discovery Safety scientific leadership within and outside AstraZeneca including external meeting attendance and regular publication in high quality, peer-reviewed journals. Job requirements (education and experience) include: * PhD in toxicology, pharmacology, cell biology, systems biology or medicinal chemistry, and a strong scientific track record. * Solid understanding of the drug discovery and development process through experience in pharmaceutical safety, with an appreciation of disciplines within and outside drug safety and toxicology. * Experience with the design and execution of in vivo experiments to determine the effects of therapeutics on biological systems, with line of sight to human safety risk understanding. * Hands-on experience with in vitro toxicology, pharmacology and/or molecular biology experimentation to investigate molecular mechanisms of drug action is critical. * Strong communication, presentation and influencing skills across levels/disciplines. * Highly motivated, creative, reliable scientist with a collaborative, team-oriented mindset, who solves problems in a goal-focused fashion. * Knowledge/experience in Oncology will be considered an advantage. * A social personality that contributes to an open, positive, collaborative working climate.
