Job Summary

About Us

Genmab is an international biotechnology company specializing in the invention and development of differentiated human antibody therapeutics for the treatment of cancer and other important human diseases.

The Role

Principal Scientist of Pharmacology will serve as the pharmacology lead on a number of pre-clinical and clinical development programs, providing pharmacology support and execution of clinical development plans that include characterization and prediction of pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics of the drug candidate.

You will also work in close collaboration with scientists in Translational Research and Clinical Development to conduct quantitative PK/PD/safety/efficacy analyses for integration into overall program strategies. You will provide rationale for dose regimen selection in FIH trials and beyond, and identification of circumstances where dose adjustment or patient selection/stratification should be considered. You will be responsible for all aspects of quantitative modeling & simulation strategies for candidate drug products from early development (pre-IND) through late stage development using model-based approaches to improve the efficiency of drug development, improve our mechanistic understanding and support dose selection.

This is an exciting opportunity to be part of a passionate, high profile, high-impact Pharmacology team, and work in a highly dynamic and collaborative setting.
