Associate Principal Scientist, Singapore

Join a highly successful business and the market leader to help continue the growth of their focused and ambitious product development pipeline.

Reporting to the General Manager (Singapore) you will play a crucial role in the leadership of all key in vivo projects, managing and leading highly qualified study directors.  This operation is focused on the development of novel and scientifically robust approaches that provide reliable scientific evidence and data, of the highest quality, using a systems biology based approach.  This helps us to understand mechanisms of disease observed in animal models and then translate these observations to human physiology – validating scientific concepts and develop new tools for future research.

Using highly advanced in vivo / ex vivo systems and technology you will provide scientific expertise and guidance to the General Manager. You will bring a high level of scientific expertise and experience in developing targeted in vivo models to understand specific disease mechanisms in areas such as Lung Cancer and Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD). You will be expected to interpret complex data from both in vivo and ex vivo methodology. You will have excellent written and oral communication skills and will work closely with scientific leaders, regulatory groups and senior management.

You will be responsible for leading, developing and motivating a high performing BioResearch team, working directly with the Biological Systems Research group in Switzerland, responsible for the establishment and validation of novel in vivo models.  Your aim is to deliver scientific data of the highest quality, leading the development of new models to enhance disease understanding.

You will have direct and indirect line management responsibility in a matrix environment, leading strong multi-disciplinary and multi-cultural scientific teams, ideally with the ability to manage through influence, with excellent problem solving skills and leadership capability, whilst developing excellent relationships with stakeholders in all countries.

You will have the ability to motivate others, think strategically, be an excellent communicator and possess the awareness to invest in and develop positive relationships at all levels, with a high level of comfort with senior management.

Your success will be linked to your ability to develop and lead a high performing team(s) delivering science and scientific data of the highest standards, providing direction, leadership and vision. You will also be expected to gain the respect of your scientific peers and external stakeholders, such that you are recognised as a global expert within the development and use of in vivo models for Lung Cancer and COPD.

This is an exciting opportunity to join a highly successful global business, within a leadership capacity, in a highly visible capacity where the long term career prospects are varied and exceptional.
