Job Description

Spacer Image
The primary focus of the role is bioanalytical method implementation at external CROs and coordination of biological samples analysis for non-GLP and GLP studies in support of clinical development programs across all projects within the Roivant family of companies. The manager will also contribute to relevant regulatory submissions for clinical programs. Secondary roles within the bioanalytical remit will include CRO site qualifications and study specific audits. The position will include the opportunity to learn and support nonclinical drug metabolism and pharmacokinetic studies. This is an ideal opportunity for a motivated and energetic bioanalytical scientist that wishes to broaden their expertise in nonclinical drug disposition.

Responsibilities include:

•Provide operational support to nonclinical and clinical bioanalytical programs for the development of drug candidates by establishing appropriate methods in each species and matrix required to meet development program timelines at qualified CROs
•Review method development, validation, and stability data to ensure adequate accuracy, precision, reproducibility, and stability, in line with regulatory requirements
•Ensure on-time delivery of bioanalytical data to project team members by liaising closely between the project team member and the CROs
•Perform site CRO site qualifications, set up MSA’s and obtain cost estimates for the bioanalytical support of clinical and nonclinical studies
•Represent the bioanalytical function of the nonclinical department on project teams to critique and interpret existing data and develop and execute project plans to support clinical development
•Support the product development teams by providing operational and scientific oversight for studies in other DMPK disciplines such as drug metabolism, PK, and in vitro transporter studies. This may be a growth opportunity for scientists with strong expertise in bioanalysis that wish to broaden their experience in nonclinical drug development.
•Author and review regulatory submissions (INDs, CTAs, IBs, NDAs, etc.)
•Participate in performing reviews of due diligence data packages to identify issues/risks/gaps to development
•Effectively communicate data to project teams, senior management, and collaborators as necessary
•Present data in the form of poster and/or oral presentations at relevant scientific meetings; draft manuscripts for peer-reviewed literature based on study results

We are looking for a top quality individual with the following characteristics:

•Deeply motivated self-starter with an entrepreneurial spirit
•Thrives in a quickly changing, fast-paced environment
•Desire to work in multiple therapeutic areas
•Unrelenting dedication to delivering quality results
•Being an integrity role model by visibly and consistently speaking and acting with superior moral values
•Willing to roll up your sleeves to get the job done
•Able to work with CRO personnel and gain their trust and respect
•Willing to travel up to 15%
