Over de functie

Yacht has an exciting opportunity for a Team Leader Drug Discovery at one of our partners. 

Partner:
Our partner is a Contract Research Organization (CRO) with global activities and impact. Their focus in the Netherlands is to provide full services in the entire drug discovery process from initial screening to support during clinical trials. The work is done in close collaboration with locations in several countries, but located locally in Leiden. 

Role:
The appointed Group Leader will be a key member of the Operational Management Team providing strong scientific, operational and strategic leadership to multiple project teams at the Leiden site of the Biology Department. You will have line management responsibility for the recruitment, development and retention of team members within the Biology team (6 to 20 (in)direct reports depending on your seniority). 

Functie-eisen

You have significant experience as a line manager in an industrial drug discovery setting, ideally within a CRO environment, as the role includes responsibility for managing drug discovery project teams and individuals. Excellent interpersonal skills and the ability to motivate multiple teams are vital for this key role. You understand that our people are our most valuable asset and excel in helping them grow.

You will be familiar with all aspects of drug discovery (e.g. HTS, biomarker strategies and development of appropriate screening cascades), and have experience in complex in vitro biology, such as use of primary cells or stem cells in drug discovery. You are able to work across various therapeutic areas in order to apply these skills to ongoing and new projects. A flexible and dynamic approach towards achieving client-based objectives and meeting challenging deadlines is required, as is the ability to communicate confidently and concisely with clients via teleconferences, presentations and written reports.

In addition to leading your own project teams, you will be comfortable communicating across sites in order to drive efficiencies and enhance best practice, and working with the global Business Development teams in order to establish client needs and provide guidance to appropriate methods of achieving their goals with regards to skills available across the company.

Arbeidsvoorwaarden

Direct and full-time employment at our client. Attractive primary and secondary benefits.
