Director, Clinical Pharmacology

Director of Clinical Pharmacology

Nimbus has an outstanding opportunity for an exceptional Director of Clinical Pharmacology to join our team. This role will be responsible for all aspects of the clinical pharmacology strategy including early (Phase 1) and late-stage development (Phase 2/3 and NDA filings). This individual will provide strategic leadership and execution of clinical development plans that include characterization and prediction of the pharmacokinetics, pharmacodynamics, and drug metabolism of the drug candidate in selected preclinical and all clinical areas. This role will report to our Head of DMPK.

In this role, you will:

  • Develop clinical pharmacology plans to support the development and registration of Nimbus products
  • Be responsible for protocol design of clinical pharmacology trials, study planning, review, data analysis / interpretation, and reporting of individual studies implemented to support clinical pharmacology components of project plans
  • Provide strategic quantitative clinical pharmacology input to cross functional clinical development teams
  • Determine scope, design, and planning and analysis of early and mid stage pharmacokinetic (PK) and pharmacodynamic (PD) studies, and modeling/simulations required from a drug development and regulatory perspective to take a project from concept to NDA submission. Responsibilities include describing results of these studies in regulatory documents (IND’s NDA’s, IB’s, etc.)
  • Represent Nimbus with regulatory agencies and respond to regulatory inquires related to DMPK, PK/PD, and clinical pharmacology
  • Oversee clinical study conduct and collaborate with leaders across all functions
  • Monitor work with CROs and other external vendors to ensure compliance with agreed protocols, quality standards and timelines
  • Review external data, lead analysis, interpretation and reporting of clinical pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic data
  • Manage bioanalysis and PK activities at CROs and other external vendors

These Qualifications Will Help This Role Be Successful

  • PhD, PharmD or equivalent training in Clinical Pharmacology, Pharmacokinetics, or a related field with 7+ years of biotech or pharmaceutical industry experience as a clinical pharmacologist with proven understanding of drug development
  • Strong knowledge of biologics pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics principles, immunogenicity, modelling and simulation, Model-Informed Drug Development, ADME Concepts, and regulatory clinical pharmacology requirements to support clinical development and regulatory submission
  • Demonstrated track record and ability to manage the clinical pharmacology / pharmacokinetic components of development projects
  • Experienced in performing Modeling and Simulation (M&S) in drug development (ie. PK/PD, PBPK, mechanistic modeling, population PK) (preferred)
  • Proficiency and experience in using common PK / PD modeling software packages (i.e., Phoenix WinNonlin, NONMEM, R, SAS, and other similar tools)
  • Excellent project management skills
  • Excellent verbal and written communication and organizational skills required with demonstrated success in leading projects and interacting with cross functional teams
  • Ability to navigate, problem-solve, execute, and lead in a dynamic, fast-paced and evolving environment
