Senior Level PhD Scientist - Assay Development/High- Throughput Screening -
4286HS
In this role, you will provide scientific leadership in the evaluation and
development of new assay technologies for high-throughput screening. You
will work closely with scientists throughout the various therapy areas of
Schering Plough to bring novel therapeutic targets into HTS. To qualify, you
must possess a PhD with a strong background in pharmacology or biochemistry,
at least 7 years in pharmaceutical drug discovery, and experience in HTS
technologies. Experience in cell-based HTS assays is highly desirable.
Candidates with more extensive experience are also encouraged to apply.
Excellent communication and collaboration skills are required.

Senior Level PhD Scientist - Oncology Research - 4287HS
In this role, you will provide scientific leadership in the molecular
mechanisms of cancer. Areas of particular interest include: (1) biochemistry
of signal transduction pathways involved in tumor cell proliferation and
apoptosis; (2) development and utilization of molecularly-defined
(transgenic or knock-out) animal models of cancer; or (3) expertise in high
through-put target validation using RNA interference or antisense
approaches. To qualify you must possess a PhD or MD/PhD with a strong
background in molecular mechanisms of cancer. Post-doctoral research
experience and at least 5-7 years of independent research experience in an
academic or industrial setting are required.Expertise in the application of
biochemical, molecular biological and/or in vivo modeling approaches to
oncology research also required. Familiarity with small molecule drug
discovery and evaluation would be an asset, along with strong communication
and collaboration skills as well as a productive publication record.

Senior Level PhD Scientist - Antiviral Research - 4288HS
In this role, you will provide scientific leadership in the Antiviral area,
which will include participation/supervision of an interdisciplinary
research team, dedicated to the discovery and development of antiviral
compounds/therapeutic proteins. To qualify you must possess a PhD in
Molecular Biology, Microbiology, Biochemistry, Immunology or suitable field
and 7 + years of post-graduate research with prior team management
experience along with expertise in molecular virology and/or viral
immunology. Candidates with prior research experience in HCV/HIV or related
viruses are preferred, along with previous experience in drug discovery and
pharmaceutical industry experience. This position requires overseeing the
activities of a team of highly talented scientists; therefore applicants
should possess prior scientific management experience and excellent
leadership skills along with a productive publication record.

Senior Level PhD Scientist - Central Nervous System Research - 4321HS
In this role, you will provide scientific leadership to a group engaged in
assay development, identification/in vitro pharmacological characterization
of drug candidates, and validation of novel targets for the treatment of
various CNS diseases. To qualify, you must possess a PhD with a strong
background in molecular pharmacology or biochemistry and at least 5 years of
independent research experience in an academic or industrial setting.
Expertise in radioligand binding techniques, signal transduction assays,
high throughput assay development, and all common molecular biology
techniques is essential. Excellent oral and written communication skills,
the ability to work in a team setting and a strong publication record are
also required. 

Senior Research Pathologist - 304HS
As a member of our multidisciplinary team, you will research mechanisms of
drug efficacy and toxicity; evaluate drug safety measures; and develop
strategies for the registration of superior new therapies worldwide. For
this position, you must be a DVM/VMD (a PhD in Pathology and board
eligibility/certification by the American College of Veterinary Pathologists
desirable). Anatomic pathology experience in investigative and toxicologic
pathology and various toxicity studies, including chronic toxicity and
carcinogenicity studies, is highly desirable.

In vivo Toxicology Research Associate - 3691HS
In this role, you will conduct and oversee pre-clinical drug safety studies
in a GLP environment. This includes ensuring compliance with protocol design
and regulatory requirements in dosing, drug preparation and toxicity;
collecting and tabulating data using applicable computer systems; and
assisting in data verification and evaluation. To qualify, you must have a
BS or MS in Biological/Animal Sciences and 5+ years experience conducting
and/or overseeing pre-clinical drug safety studies in a GLP environment. You
must also have strong oral/written communication skills. Supervisory
experience preferred. AALAS certification desirable.

BS/MS Research Associate - Cardiovascular Pharmacology - 4279HS
As a member of our discovery research team, you will test novel compounds in
in-vivo and ex-vivo models on various projects in the areas of thrombosis
and heart failure. You¹ll also plan, schedule and analyze study data and
communicate findings to the group. To qualify, you must have a BS in
Biological Sciences and 4+ years of related research or experience (or) an
MS with 2+ years experience. A strong understanding of cardiovascular
physiology and pharmacology in the areas of thrombosis and heart failure is
essential, as are surgical skills and the ability to evaluate in-vitro and
in-vivo platelet function and thrombosis. You must also have excellent
oral/written communication skills.

PhD Scientist - CNS Behavior - 4078HS
As a member of a core CNS behavior group, you will establish a team to
develop novel pre-clinical tests of psychiatric disorders to support the
assessment of novel drug targets; perform and oversee pharmacodynamic tests
to study drug action; and work within multidisciplinary project teams to
discover novel CNS-based therapeutics. To qualify, you must have a PhD in a
Neuroscience and/or Pharmacology and 1+ years of postdoctoral experience,
preferably in a drug discovery environment. A proven commitment in applying
behavior techniques to study drug action is essential. You must also have
excellent oral/written communication and interpersonal skills.

PhD Scientist - Cell Biologist (Cell-Based Assays) - 3783HS
In this role, you will provide leadership in the development of cell-based
assays involving calcium and membrane potential responses,
fluorescence-based reporter genes, and other miniaturized assays for GPCR
and other HTS targets. You will also play a major role in evaluating and
disseminating new assay technologies to scientists in all therapeutic areas
of Schering-Plough. To qualify, you must have a PhD, extensive background in
pharmacology or biochemistry, and 2+ years experience in a pharmaceutical
drug discovery program. Experience in HTS technologies (i.e., FLIPR, FP,
ECL, MS) and high-content screening will be helpful. A background with
cell-based HTS or large quantity cell production is highly desirable.
