Our client is seeking a Ph.D. and/or M.D. (Masters considered with relevant experience) trained research scientist to support the preclinical study execution, commercialization activities, internal research and development. The right candidate will have familiarity of a protocol driven environment in order to meet the preclinical objectives related to evaluating the efficacy, pharmacology and safety of new therapeutics, medical devices, and drug delivery technologies in nonhuman primates (NHPs). The role requires strong interpersonal skills to address and communicate unmet needs and obstacles faced in the translational research process with sponsors/collaborators. Must have experience with core research methods and familiarity with related scientific fields to meet technical writing, presentation, data collection/analysis, and reporting expectations. Experience leading and collaborating with a team is preferred in order to effectively supervise the project team and delegate tasks.
