Job Description

Cardio-metabolic disease is the leading cause of death worldwide, taking an estimated 17.9 million lives each year. Obesity not only directly contributes to risk factors such as dyslipidemia and type 2 diabetes but also leads to the development of cardiovascular disease mortality independent of other risk factors. The Cardiovascular and Metabolism (CVM) Disease Area at the Novartis Institutes for Biomedical Research (NIBR) is dedicated to the creation and development of innovative and transformative medicines to prevent and treat cardio-metabolic disease.

We are seeking a highly motivated scientist to join our in vivo pharmacology group to help discover new therapies for cardio-metabolic disease. In this role, you will be responsible for planning, executing and analyzing in vivo pharmacology experiments in preclinical models of metabolic disease. You will be working in a highly matrixed, team-oriented and collaborative environment.

The successful candidate is expected to perform and excel in the following areas:
• Assist in the design, development, characterization, implementation and validation of relevant preclinical models for identifying and profiling of metabolic targets
• Plan and perform in vivo pharmacology studies to evaluate metabolic treatment strategies including efficacy, PK/PD and mechanism of action analyses.
• Perform biochemical and/or histological analyses of samples
• Document, analyze and interpret experiments in a timely manner.
• Present results in lab and department meetings
