Therapeutic Area Lead - Autoimmune Diseases, MEC-154
The "Therapeutic Area Lead Autoimmune Diseases" will be responsible for leading a set of projects in the autoimmune portfolio from target discovery stage up to pre-clinical candidate delivery. Innovation and in-depth scientific insights are expected to be key drivers in the approach taken by the Leader for selecting targets and progressing projects to success through the design of critical testing cascades. The Lead will be operating internally in a matrix-type environment, and will take a central position in coordinating the activities of several departments ranging from in vitro through in vivo pharmacology. The application of concepts which increase probability of success, such as e.g. biomarkers and other translational activities, will be strongly encouraged. The Lead will also manage interactions with external experts in the field as well as the contacts with alliance partners collaborating on specific projects. Besides the management of projects, the Lead will also play a central role in the maintenance of a high-quality knowledge environment within the area, through the interaction with KOLs, attending congresses and following up literature closely. Building a clear view on the competitive environment in an area is part of the knowledge to be gathered in the area. The continued scientific support to projects in the development phase represents another element of the position. This leader is expected to deliver on the preset objectives in the area described above, within a defined budget. He will report to the Therapeutic Area Head, Autoimmune Diseases.
