Lilly is on the forefront of groundbreaking research and has established the Lilly Institute of Genetic Medicine. The ADME Pharmacokinetics (PK)/Pharmacodynamics (PD) Biomolecule group is growing and looking for a quantitatively minded scientist to be part of the team leading PK/PD modeling and simulation techniques to advance our Genetic Medicines portfolio.

Do you have a passion for learning and trying new things? Are you interested in being on the cutting edge of therapeutic drug development? If you are curious about drug discovery and development and enjoy asking questions and solving problems, this is a great opportunity. Apply today and join our dynamic team of scientists!

We seek dynamic, energetic, curious, and collaborative scientists ready to engage and work on life-changing therapies for patients involving novel complex molecules including DNA (e.g. Gene editing) and RNA-based technologies (e.g. siRNA). You will interact with cross-functional teams using in vitro, in vivo, and in silico approaches to mechanistically study the PK and PD of new therapeutic molecules. Through engagement in experimental design and data interpretation, you will help drive and deliver the discovery portfolio of investigational siRNA targets and novel therapeutics.

We are passionate about making an impact in the lives of our patients and pushing the boundaries of science. Consider joining our Indianapolis based team!

We are seeking a modeling and simulation minded scientist to contribute in a team environment as we use diverse analytical and computational tools to characterize factors influencing the pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic properties of our siRNA and Genetic Medicine portfolio.
