We are looking for an ambitious drug discovery scientist with experience in neuroimmunology and neuroinflammation to join our efforts in inventing and developing novel drugs against debilitating CNS disorders.
With your in-depth knowledge of neuroimmunology and neuroinflammation you will drive the development of in-vivo assays and models based on testable hypotheses, that allow us to link target function to disease biology in niche CNS patient populations. You will also setup and direct external and internal in-vivo studies using mechanistic and functional readouts with high focus on cross-species translational biomarkers. As a senior scientist, you will be working across the Neuroscience organization in close collaboration with other academics and technicians and contribute with scientific leadership and key experimental data and insight to our portfolio of drug discovery and development projects.
You will help to guide project paths and decisions and you will continuously seek to extend and further develop our scientific understanding of neuroimmunology and neuroinflammation and related experimental platforms including developing ideas for novel drug discovery programs.
The position will be based in Neuroscience, within the Department of Pathology and Fluid Biomarkers. The overall focus in the department is development of in-vivo assays relevant to disease biology and cross-species translational biomarkers.
Our preferred candidate has the following professional and personal qualifications:
The opportunity to join a team of highly qualified and experienced colleagues that are on a quest of making new innovative medicines in Copenhagen, Denmark. The Neuroscience organization performs biological research at Lundbeck and is focused on generating the necessary pre-clinical data and knowledge for advancing drug discovery and development projects. We span from early idea generation to target evaluation, through to all stages of clinical development. We share a workplace with an open, science-driven, “just do it” collegial and collaborative atmosphere. We focus on teamwork and individual professional development and you will be part of a global and specialized pharmaceutical company with approximately 5,000 employees specialized in CNS disorders.
