Job Description

The discovery absorption, distribution, metabolism, and excretion (ADME) group within the Experimental Pharmacology Department at is seeking a highly qualified multi-disciplinary team-oriented Scientist having cell biology experience with emphasis on in vitro ADME assays. In this role you will provide support for a diverse portfolio that includes small molecules, peptides, and proteins.

You will be responsible for running existing in vitro ADME assays to support pre-clinical project teams and will also be involved in the troubleshooting and development of new ADME cell-based assays. You will gain the ability to conduct cell culture experiments, and experience investigating the fate of molecules.


A good understanding of laboratory equipment, automation, and associated software is desirable. You must be able to demonstrate strong experimental and problem-solving skills, excellent collaboration, and communication skills (both written and oral English), and an eagerness to learn. Demonstration of meeting timelines and excellent time management is favoured. The ability to work in a team-based drug discovery/development environment is essential. Experience in stem cells culture and differentiation would be considered a plus.

Education Requirements

BA/BS in Pharmaceutical Science, Molecular Biology, or a related discipline. 1+ years or an equivalent combination of education and experience.

Experience with in vitro ADME assays, involving use of established and novel sub-cellular and cell-based systems (e.g., microsomes, hepatocytes, cell lines, long term co-culture models) and analysis primarily through LC/MS detection is preferred.
