Specialist in Toxicology and Safety Pharmacology

  • Måløv

We are hiring a Specialist in Toxicology and Safety Pharmacology in our Department of Early Toxicology and Safety Pharmacology.

We are looking for a highly skilled person with solid industry experience in safety assessment of non-clinical safety studies from pharma, biotech or CRO, preferably with industry leading knowledge about development of RNA therapies. If that sounds like you, you might be our new colleague.


About the department

We are 11 highly experienced people in the department, but we need you to support our growing and exiting project portfolio. Our key task is to drive our development projects towards “first in man” with focus on human safety, high quality science, animal welfare and project timelines. We have a long track record in running toxicology and safety pharmacology studies at Contract Research Organizations (CROs) - but we also have a tradition for being contributors to the scientific community (speaking at conferences,  writing publications and supervising PhD students as well as post-docs).


About the job

Your will be responsible for optimal monitoring of study planning, study conduct as well as study reporting, in close collaboration with study directors at the CROs and other key stakeholders. You will be the key driver for the science-based safety assessment of the molecule(s) in your project team(s). Internal communication in project teams and to e.g. safety committees are important aspects of the job. In addition, you will be co-author for the documentation to the authorities towards the approval of the “first in man” studies (e.g. IND, IB and CTA).



You have a background in biological sciences, e.g. a degree in veterinary medicine. You have several years of industry experience in safety assessments of a wide variety of treatment modalities. Specifically, experience with RNA therapies would be an asset as we recently have entered a collaboration with Dicerna™ Pharmaceuticals to develop novel therapies using their RNAi platform technology.
We expect that you have a track record of relevant publications, are used to speak at conferences and have been working in international cross industry/consortia settings. In addition, we obviously expect that you have a good overview of the non-clinical guidance landscape.


As a person you have a proven scientific mind-set as this will be needed to interact with key specialist, internally as well externally. You are fluent in English, both written and spoken and have good communication/presentation skills. You are energetic, a fast learner, takes responsibility, are a conscious team player, and you are good at establishing contacts. Curiosity for IT solutions (scientific tools for data exploration, data bases, big data, SEND, machine learning, etc) would be an advantage as we currently invest heavily in digital solutions. Certifications in relevant fields (e.g. Master in Toxicology, DABT, ERT, DSP) proves an ambitious mindset and will also be an advantage.

Hopefully this sounds like and interesting opportunity for you and if so, we are curious to learn more about you.
