Project Description


As a Scientist, your overall mission is to design, validate and implement automated high output workflows in our company's R&D biopharmaceutical platform. You will focus on scientific innovations to strengthen our knowledge of the biopharmaceutical properties of the drug substance and drug product, ensuring optimal in vivo performance. 

Your Function 
• Implementation of (semi-)automated high-output in vitro workflows in our company's R&D biopharmaceutical platform to understand and predict the gastro-intestinal absorption potential of new compounds across stages of development. 
• Design, coordinate, execute and report experimental work related to Biopharmaceutics and Physiology Based Pharmacokinetic (PBPK) modeling in support of drug product development. 
• Continuously improve existing workflows based on in silico needs and in vivo performance. 
• Participate in the evaluation of new analytical techniques in the area of biorelevant testing and keep up to date with scientific innovations. 
• Build and maintain strong relationship with key stakeholders including Discovery Sciences, Clinical Pharmacology, Drug Product Development and Analytical Development. 
• Work in a multidisciplinary team of researchers, internally as well as externally
