Utrecht, Netherlands
Posted on Monday, June 24, 2024

At Genmab, we’re committed to building extra[not]ordinary futures together, by developing antibody products and pioneering, knock-your-socks-off therapies that change the lives of patients and the future of cancer treatment and serious diseases. From our people who are caring, candid, and impact-driven to our business, which is innovative and rooted in science, we believe that being proudly unique, determined to be our best, and authentic is essential to fulfilling our purpose.

(Senior) Scientist, Clinical Bioanalytical Science

The department

The Bioanalytical Science team is responsible for developing fit-for-purpose bioanalytical strategies to quantify drug in circulation and assess unwanted immunogenicity for Genmab’s compounds. We are experts in the design, development, validation, execution and interpretation of bioanalytical methods, with a focus on pharmacokinetics/pharmacodynamics (PK/PD), anti-drug antibodies (ADA), and neutralizing antibodies (NAb). We perform bioanalysis activities for both regulated (GLP, GCP) and non-regulated exploratory studies. As such, we provide a strong foundation for informed decision-making at critical points throughout our entire drug development program.

Your role at Genmab

As a (Senior) Scientist within the Bioanalytical Science team, you act as Scientific Lead for Genmab compounds in the clinical development stage. You will be part of the cross-organization development teams for several programs and be responsible for the bioanalytical method strategy, mainly focusing on PK and ADA methods. As such you lead the in-house development, qualification or validation, and execution of ligand binding and NAb assays, as well as the transfer to Contract Research Organizations (CROs). In addition, you will work closely together with a team of technicians to coordinate, execute, and report on sample analysis. To achieve this, you work in a regulated GLP/GCP environment, adhering to relevant guidelines and standard operating procedures aimed at ensuring data reliability.

Responsibilities include but are not limited to:

  • Oversee development, qualification, validation, execution and/or transfer of ligand binding and NAb assays to measure pharmacokinetic (PK) and anti-drug antibody (ADA) responses in biological matrices
  • Ensure compliance to GLP/GCP guidelines, develop study-specific plans and carry out tasks according to standard operating procedures
  • Ensure to be adequately trained according to the BioA training matrix
  • Participate in multi-disciplinary project teams and communicate with Clinical Trial Manager during all stages of the study
  • Hold final responsibility for the scientific, administrative (including authoring and archiving of necessary documentation) and regulatory aspects of the bioanalytical part of a clinical trial
  • Act as a primary contact for external parties (validation, managing timelines, troubleshooting, analysis)
  • Support technology innovation and/or process improvement projects
  • Keep the department up to date with the latest relevant scientific information regarding immunology, bioanalysis and additional regulatory documents
