We give our best effort to our work, and we put people first. We’re looking for people who are determined to make life better for people around the world.

Lilly is looking for inventive, motivated and eager scientists to join the Global Pharmacokinetics/Pharmacodynamics and Pharmacometrics Team. PK/PD & Pharmacometrics scientists are functional leaders in research and development throughout the value chain from preclinical lead molecule identification to clinical post-drug approval. Our goal is to identify and develop the right drug with the right dose for the right patient through the model-informed paradigm of drug R&D. These emerging scientists will apply PK/PD and pharmacometric approaches to translate from preclinical to the clinical setting by integrating data from multiple subject areas.

This role will give you the opportunity to contribute your scientific and technical knowledge to model-informed drug discovery and development strategies and plans, trial designs and data interpretation. If you have a passion, curiosity and persistence to affect change and deliver results, this could be the career for you. Apply today!
