Scientist - Department of Preclinical Fluid Biomarkers and Occupancy

Are you a highly motivated Scientist with a genuine interest in Translational Biology, experience with immunoassays and bioanalysis and a solid understanding of biomarker applications. Then you may be a great addition to our team of scientists in the discovery of transformative treatments for neurological disorders.


Your new role – why is this a great opportunity?

As a Scientist, you will contribute to our biomarker discovery efforts in in vivo pharmacology and pharmacodynamics studies. It is an excellent opportunity for an independent and motivated scientist to conduct hands-on laboratory work in support of drug discovery programs in our portfolio, and to:


  • Perform quantitative bioanalysis using fit-for-purpose assays (e.g., commercial ELISAs, MSD, GyroLab) for quantification and qualification of new biomarkers in preclinical and clinical samples in collaboration with technicians and other colleagues across Lundbeck R&D
  • Adopt and develop new fluid biomarker modalities such as Flow Cytometry based analysis (i.e., whole blood/PBMC, FACS, microRNAs microvesicles (MVs) and exosomes)
  • Actively seek external inspiration for optimisation of our methodologies and stay up to date with scientific advancements to ensure our continuous development
  • Direct studies through external partners such as CROs and approved vendors
  • Contribute to development of translational strategies for Target engagement, Mechanism of action, and Pharmacodynamic biomarker exploration
  • Engage in multidisciplinary project teams and contribute to cross functional biomarker teams whilst working collaboratively with colleagues across Lundbeck R&D
  • Promote a culture of diversity, innovation, and curiosity, while maintaining accountability and timely delivery of high-quality decision-enabling data.


Your future team

The Department of Preclinical Fluid Biomarkers and Occupancy is based at Lundbeck’s R&D headquarter in Valby, Copenhagen. The department comprises a small team of 8 members, including scientists, laboratory technicians and students, and our team is currently expanding.


Our department supports research projects with generating comprehensive in vivo pharmacology data packages for new drug candidates in Lundbeck’s R&D pipeline. We do this by testing the pharmacological effect of compounds in mechanistic animal models and by measuring related fluid biomarker changes. Bioanalyses are run on multiple immunoassay platforms, including as e.g., ELISA, Gyros and MSD


What you bring to our team

You hold a PhD degree in Biomarker assay development, Life Sciences, Neuroscience, or a related discipline relevant to pharma/biotech research and development, with 1-3 years post-PhD experience. You have experience and good understanding of translational research in both preclinical research and early clinical development settings. In addition, you bring:


  • Experience with translational biomarker development (pharmacodynamic, predictive and fit-for-purpose qualification) including experience with quantitative bioanalytical assays, developing assays, qualifying assays, automation, and process optimization
    • Experience of (soluble) biomarker assay platforms (e.g., ELISA, MSD-ECL, Simoa, O-Link and GyroLab) is highly desirable
    • Experience with biomarker innovation; specifically with Flow Cytometry based analysis (i.e., whole blood/PBMC, FACS, microRNAs, microvesicles (MVs) and exosomes), or neuroinflammation related immunoassays is highly desirable
  • FELASA B or equivalent, and experience in in-vivo study planning (good organizational mind-set) and execution is ideal 
  • Good statistical analysis skills
  • Experience working within cross-functional project teams, and a proven history of successful collaboration with internal or external teams at contract research organizations and academic laboratories
  • Proficient in oral and written English, and good effective communication skills with demonstrated ability to deliver presentations in a broad range of settings.
