Job title: Pharmacometrician / Pharmacokinetic Modeller

Location: The London Cancer Hub’s Innovation Gateway in South West London (Sutton).

Contract type: Full-time, permanent

About Vesynta: We are developing a toolkit that, for the first time, will enable clinicians dosing life-saving therapies (incl. chemotherapies, antibiotics and immunosuppressants) to map the unique pharmacokinetics of their patients at the point of-care using this information to rapidly identify the optimal dose, for each and every patient. Having spun-out of University College London, we work with clinicians, patients and academics across the UK, Europe and the USA, to establish this important healthcare innovation into clinical practice. Our work has been recognised and awarded for its vision and impact, including funding from prestigious grant competitions (Innovate UK, NIHR i4i) and private equity. We welcome you to join our journey to deliver data-guided dosing, that is safe, effective, and personalised to every patient.

Role description: You will operate within the clinical pharmacology division of the R&D team. It involves applied pharmacometrics including population pharmacokinetic (PK) and pharmacodynamic (PD) modelling building on exposure-response datasets. Your models form an integral part of our clinical software solution that will deliver personalised treatments in clinical practice. Support will be provided by senior team leads, internal clinical advisors and collaborators from globally renowned research institutions. This will aid your decision making and data interpretation, applied to real-world patients across a variety of disease areas. You will have the opportunity to lead pharmacometrics processes and techniques within the team, combined with strategic business exposure, to develop models for both product development and guide use-case prioritisation. You will work alongside our software developers to ensure your models are useable and scalable.
