Company: Novartis Group
Location: Cambridge
Posted on: February 19, 2021

Job Description:

Neuroscience Physician Scientist, Psychiatry Job Description 10% or more of the world's population is affected by psychiatric illnesses such as depressive conditions, bipolar illness and schizophrenia. There are no cures for these conditions, and current treatments have limited benefits, though they are used widely due to those benefits. There is major room for improvement in psychiatry, and drug development in this field has slowed down notably in the last two decades.

At Novartis, this major need is seen as an opportunity to make an impact that might not happen otherwise. If you share this desire to make an impact, we invite you to apply to join a psychiatry program aimed not just at developing new drugs, but transforming the field of psychiatry. We are looking for leaders who bring a creative approach to new thinking in psychiatry, such as moving beyond DSM definitions of indications, and going beyond symptomatic drug efforts and towards disease modification.

We believe we need to challenge conventional drug discovery in psychiatry and lead the profession in new directions.

The Translational Medicine (TM ) Discovery & Profiling (TMDP) group is a team of physicians and clinical researchers who drive that innovation science from discovery to the patient through the selection, profiling and effective development of medicines.

In the role of Neuroscience-Psychiatry TM Expert you will develop high value decision-strategies for the Translational Medicine component of drug development projects through the proof-of-concept phase.

Your main accountabilities will include but not be limited to:

--- Lead project teams that develop and implement strategies in early drug discovery and profiling programs for First-in-Human safety (phase 1) and clinical Proof of Concept efficacy (phase 2a) studies.
--- Collaborate with preclinical research scientists to identify, develop, and implement strategy for support of early drug discovery objectives. This includes assessment of medical need, proposal of clinical development pathways, and review of preclinical data for clinical implications, and other relevant activities.
--- Lead project teams that provide investigational brochures (IB) and other regulatory requirements for health authorities
--- Work closely with biomarker expert to develop and implement compound related biomarker strategies in implementation.
--- Provide scientific expert assessments and support for in-licensing opportunities, including due diligences
--- Drive success of late global drug development programs (phase 2b) when appropriate by developing and implementing strategies that lead to clinical pharmacology, design of mechanistic studies and profiling packages that meet regulatory requirements and support differentiated and competitive drug labeling
