Project Description

Research Scientist-Toxicology Project Leader
United States
At Lilly, we unite caring with discovery to make life better for people around the world. We are a global healthcare leader headquartered in Indianapolis, Indiana. Our 39,000 employees around the world work to discover and bring life-changing medicines to those who need them, improve the understanding and management of disease, and give back to our communities through philanthropy and volunteerism. We give our best effort to our work, and we put people first. We’re looking for people who are determined to make life better for people around the world.
We are seeking a Research Scientist in the Department of Nonclinical Safety Assessment within the Division of Toxicology/Pathology for the role of Toxicology Project Leader with a focus on those candidates that have demonstrated expertise in the endocrine system. The project leader will provide scientific leadership on endocrine issues within Toxicology/Pathology as well as represent Toxicology on drug development teams from early discovery through clinical trials to registration and beyond. The Toxicology Project Leader plays an integral role in developing world-class medicines for Eli Lilly and Company.

Subject matter expertise in endocrine physiology is a requirement. You will be able to integrate data from the target, pharmacology and toxicology studies and provide an assessment of the potential physiologic/toxicologic outcomes that could manifest when the endocrine system is perturbed.
As a Toxicology representative on drug development teams, you will work collaboratively across multiple functions including Chemistry, Discovery Biology, Drug Disposition, Pathology, Medical/Clinical and Regulatory Affairs within Lilly and with external research organizations to lead toxicology strategy, design effective toxicology plans to identify issues, characterize, and address risk of toxicity for compounds moving through development.

You will have leadership and advancement opportunity in the Division of Toxicology/Pathology which is a multidisciplinary group that uses basic and applied approaches to predict and evaluate the safety of new chemical and biological entities. This position offers opportunity for a high level of impact both internally within Lilly and in the external research and/or regulatory environment. You will be expected to contribute to a group of highly-engaged scientists, striving to provide industry-leading toxicology support to development teams.
