About the Department                                                                                                                                     

The Novo Nordisk Research Center Indianapolis, Inc. (NNRCII) supports our global mission to transform the treatment of chronic diseases through the discovery of high-quality drug candidates and disruptive technology innovations. We operate as a Transformational Research Unit (TRU), meaning we are a relatively small team of elite interdisciplinary researchers working in unison yet with autonomy relative to the global R&D organization—essentially a biotech-like ecosystem within the Novo Nordisk biosphere. We have multiple strategic collaborations with internationally acclaimed academic centers of excellence and emerging biotech’s, which we view as an integral part of our discovery research process and essential for our fundamental scientific endeavors. Collectively, this allows us to focus our efforts on data generation and translation of research hypotheses to foster quick data-driven, non-stochastic decisions. 

We are keenly focused on grassroot discovery projects pertaining to cardio-metabolic diseases and rare endocrine disorders, and we are responsible for driving projects from ideation to clinical development. In addition to drug discovery research, we also explore novel chemical biology technologies to optimize the therapeutic applications of peptides/proteins as well as biotechnologies that catalyze the pursuits of therapeutic modalities new to Novo Nordisk.   Are you ready to make a difference?

The Position

The Scientist II will provide scientific leadership in the identification and validation of new drug targets, advancing novel therapies to the clinic, and developing technologies to accelerate drug research. This will be achieved by coordinating multiple research activities involving cross-functional project teams to ensure achievement of key deliverables. The Scientist II will represent the organization to the external scientific community through publication and presentation of research and through participation in external collaborations.

Relationships

Reports to of the Site Head of Novo Nordisk Research Center Indianapolis & Senior Director of the Transformational Research Unit-Chemical Biology. 
Internal relationships include project teams and research colleagues in Seattle, Indianapolis, Denmark, and around the globe. Communicates data externally when required. May oversee parts of discovery research chemistry operations and laboratory facilities. May manage external collaborations with academic and industry partners. Individual Contributor: does not manage other employees or contingent workers.

Essential Functions

  • Advances research projects by demonstrating technical expertise, creativity, and scientific leadership in discovery research chemistry, particularly with specialization in targeted protein degradation and/or bio-conjugated oligonucleotides, and a broad knowledge of related disciplines.
  • Spearhead local drug discovery efforts aimed at exploring new chemical modalities and methodologies. This includes developing, enacting, and performing strategies for proof of concept and identifying subsequent fit-for-purpose applications
  • Analyzes complex data with high degree of sophistication, connecting disparate datasets to reach conclusions and set direction on experiments. Contributes strong scientific acumen to enable projects and advance the research agenda.
  • Effectively communicates and collaborates across global sites and guides project strategy by providing leadership of cross-functional project teams. Represents the organization through external communication of impactful scientific research in the form of presentation at external conferences and publication in scientific journals and patents.
