Pharmacometrics Lead

This role will combine strong pharmacometric skills with a deep biological 
understanding. They are responsible for independently determining, planning, 
and executing M&S analyses for an entire drug development program in close 
collaboration with cross-functional colleagues within the R&D organization. 
Specific experience and interest in working in population PK/PD or quantitative 
systems pharmacology is required. This role determines, plans, and executes 
technically challenging analyses by using state of the art Modeling & 
Simulation methodologies to strongly contribute to critical decision making. 
This role will lead M&S projects for an entire drug development program to 
evaluate study design, dose selection, probability of success estimation, 
portfolio strategy, pediatric extrapolation etc. In this role, it is expected 
that they will represent M&S with cross-functional drug development teams, 
proactively advocate for model-based approaches, and clearly communicate M&S
