Investigator/Principal Investigator, Biopharmaceutics

If you are looking for an exciting opportunity to make a difference in the lives of patients by applying integrated biopharmaceutics to support patient focused product development to help people do more, feel better and live longer, this might just be the role for you.

We are looking for an experienced Investigator/Principal Investigator, Biopharmaceutics to join the UK Biopharmaceutics group within Drug Product Development. In this role, you will interact with project teams and support the design of all new drug products (including oral, long-acting injectables, implants) developed within GSK’s Pharmaceutical portfolio.  This will be based on biopharmaceutics knowledge created using integrated in-vivo, in-vitro and in-silico (physiologically based pharmacokinetic/ biopharmaceutics modelling) tools to design and develop the most suitable drug product that is fit for the patient and meets the development timelines.

In this role you will:

·  Apply biopharmaceutics knowledge across projects to support integrated product design, drug delivery and targeting, innovative manufacturing processes, and smart bioavailability and bioequivalency studies, where applicable.
·  Develop projects/platform specific biopharmaceutics knowledge (integrated in-vivo, in-vitro, and in-silico understanding) to support the design and development of exceptional patient focused drug products (e.g., oral, long-acting injectables, implants).
·  Collaborate with partners across MDS and IVIVT to build mechanistic understanding of absorption/biopharmaceutics (through use of PBPK modeling, e.g., Gastroplus, Simcyp) and apply this fundamental understanding around product performance, biology, and PK to design the best value-added platforms and products.
·  Develop plans for in-vitro biorelevant measurements (e.g., solubility/dissolution, IDR, permeability, transfer models for oral; in-vitro release methods for long-acting injectables, implants) across projects and collaborate with partners (e.g., Materials Science, Analytical Development) to generate input data for modelling in-vivo product performance.
·  Develop in-vitro and in-silico (digital) models to enable mechanistic, science-based predictions of in-vivo pediatric behavior of drugs to support pediatric product design. 
·  Work with team members in Drug Product Development, Drug Substance Development, Process Engineering and Analytics and Analytical Development groups to support development of clinically relevant control strategies (e.g., applying physiologically based biopharmaceutics modeling) across projects for global filings.
·  Provide biopharmaceutics focused technical support as needed to established commercial projects when such support is endorsed and prioritized by CMC Board.
·  Design and execute modeling and/or experimental studies that influence project direction in line with QbD approaches.
·  Proactively engage and collaborate with cross-functional scientists to solve problems. Demonstrating networking and influencing skills through interactions across departments and divisions.

Additional responsibilities include:

·  Preparing oral or written summaries of results with interpretation for project work. Writing specific technical sections of internal and external reports. Presenting effectively to internal GSK forums, governance reviews and external meetings.
·  Being responsible for sharing relevant scientific information from internal and external meetings with appropriate colleagues.
·  Demonstrating timely and reliable recording of data/results in suitable systems in accordance with company policy and legal requirements. Performing data management and data stewardship to ensure high quality and traceable work. 

Why you?

Basic Qualifications:

We are looking for professionals with these required skills to achieve our goals:

·  BSc in an appropriate discipline, with relevant scientific experience and capabilities.
·  Experience in biopharmaceutics/drug absorption, related tools (in-vivo, in-vitro, in-silico) and product design and development.
·  Experience in mechanistic PBPK modelling (e.g., Gastroplus, Simcyp), in-silico platforms (e.g., MATLAB, gPROMS) and application to product design across dosage forms (e.g., oral, pediatric, long-acting injectable, implants).
·  Experience in in-vitro biorelevant measurements for oral biopharmaceutics (e.g., solubility/ dissolution, IDR, transfer models, TIM-1), and/or in-vitro release methods for long-acting injectables and implants.

Preferred Qualifications:

If you have the following characteristics, it would be a plus:

·  PhD/Masters in biopharmaceutics/drug absorption, pharmacokinetics, PBPK modeling, in-silico platforms and/or drug delivery.
·  General knowledge of preclinical and clinical development disciplines including DMPK, Safety, Clinical Pharmacology, etc. and integration of biopharmaceutics/modeling with formulation design across dosage forms.
·  Demonstrated experience in understanding biopharmaceutics/in-vivo performance across dosage forms including oral, pediatric, long acting injectables and/or implant products.
·  Excellent written and oral communication skills and the ability to interact effectively with scientists in other disciplines with a positive and collaborative attitude.
·  Demonstrated collaborative behaviors working in a matrix environment and working across functions/disciplines.
·  Understanding of late-stage product development. Understanding of regulatory requirements for change management for a global file.
·  Demonstrated experience in formulation design across dosage forms.
·  Demonstrated effective interpersonal, communications and negotiation skills. Logical and independent thinking.
·  Managing and delivering execution across multiple disciplines and projects.
