Whether you are in the discovery sciences, ensuring drug safety and efficacy or supporting clinical trials, you will apply cutting edge design and process development capabilities to accelerate and bring the best - in - class medicines to patients around the world.

What You Will Achieve

Scientists in this role provide logistical support for Pfizer's Global Small-Molecule Bioanalytical Group. This is accomplished through the management of samples, compounds, and biological matrices to enable the bioanalysis of studies that advance Pfizer's global portfolio. The colleague is responsible for interfacing with our sample submitting partners, troubleshooting submissions, interfacing with the group's scientists, and identifying opportunities for the continuous improvement of our processes. The colleague is expected to conduct work in a manner that is compliant with applicable regulatory requirements.

It is your hard work and dedication that will make Pfizer ready to achieve new milestones and help patients across the globe.

This group provides quantitative analysis of drugs and metabolites from biological matrices in support of Pfizer's global pharmaceutical portfolio. This colleague will interface with our sample submitters and will coordinate resources for their study support. This includes ensuring that the required compounds and matrices are in-house and assisting in the scheduling of bioanalytical support.

Sunshine Act

Pfizer reports payments and other transfers of value to health care providers as required by federal and state transparency laws and implementing regulations. These laws and regulations require Pfizer to provide government agencies with information such as a health care provider's name, address and the type of payments or other value received, generally for public disclosure. Subject to further legal review and statutory or regulatory clarification, which Pfizer intends to pursue, reimbursement of recruiting expenses for licensed physicians may constitute a reportable transfer of value under the federal transparency law commonly known as the Sunshine Act. Therefore, if you are a licensed physician who incurs recruiting expenses as a result of interviewing with Pfizer that we pay or reimburse, your name, address and the amount of payments made currently will be reported to the government. If you have questions regarding this matter, please do not hesitate to contact your Talent Acquisition representative.
