Job Description

Company: Zoetis

Title: Senior associate Scientist/Scientist (Fixed Term: 3 Years)

Location: Kalamazoo, MI

Job Description:

Position Summary:

Zoetis is looking for an in vivo biologist to work in the Companion Animal Research area on animal models of disease states such as allergy and pain/inflammation. Applicants should have a strong grounding in biological sciences with extensive experience of working with animals in a clinical or research setting. Successful work with cats is strongly desired. The skill set of the candidate should include blood and urine sampling from animals, dosing via multiple routes (i.v., oral etc) and potentially training animals to perform simple tasks. The candidate will preferably have research experience including disease model development and some understanding of drug target identification. Strong candidates will have practical experience in preparing animal use protocols, and designing, interpreting and reporting findings from in vivo research studies. Good teamwork, planning and communication skills are necessary, including an aptitude for detailed planning of complex studies. The candidate will work as a member of a team of in vivo biologists where all team members are expected to work collaboratively to ensure that studies are run successfully, alongside having responsibility for leading individual areas of research.

Veterinary Medicine Research benefits from the ability to move into the target species early in the research process and is therefore a fast moving and dynamic field, with a relatively short horizon from idea to a marketed project that will benefit patient populations. We are a dynamic and enthusiastic group who love our science and our ability to make the world a better place for our patients and we want to identify a candidate who shares our enthusiasm.

Zoetis operates in a highly matrixed environment. Interpersonal and communication skills are critical to the success of this role. The ability to convey scientific and technical information and data to a diverse audience is therefore important.
