The mission of GSK's clinical imaging group is to apply, seek, and develop impactful imaging biomarkers for informed clinical drug development decision making. We are responsible for designing and enabling exploratory and multicenter imaging studies, where specialized radiological techniques are developed and implemented as registrational clinical trial endpoints or enabling biomarkers.

The Associate Director or Director Clinical Imaging Oncology role is accountable for providing multimodality imaging guidance and expertise, including common response assessment algorithms (RECIST, RANO, etc.), and with a strong focus on developing imaging biomarkers (e.g. CT derived tumor growth kinetics, PET biodistribution and target occupancy) for internal decision-making needs in Oncology. Further, this role contributes to the execution and reporting of these studies, and strategically builds relationships to ensure a robust portfolio of imaging endpoints is available to support decision-making within GSK.

Clinical Imaging sits within Clinical Pharmacology Experimental Medicine (CPEM), as one of four integrated groups of physicians and scientists who deliver optimized early clinical and translational opportunities for assets through the (1) Discovery Medicine; (2) Clinical Biomarkers; (3) Clinical Pharmacology, Modeling and Simulation; and (4) Clinical Imaging functions. CPEM serves as a clinical and translational bridge between GSK research units and late clinical development. We leverage expertise in human disease, clinical pharmacology, biomarkers, imaging, and experimental medicine to define the optimal destination for cutting edge science to impact patient lives.

Clinical Imaging delivers and enables radiological imaging within GSK's clinical trials across therapeutic areas and all phases of development for the current pipeline, while anticipating and developing imaging solutions for future R&D and Clinical Development needs. Current and future delivery is achieved through a balanced external model, working alongside external consultants, academic institutions, and CROs to meet the varied needs of GSK.

Key Responsibilities:

This role will provide YOU the opportunity to lead key activities to progress YOUR career, these responsibilities include some of the following…

  • Oversee and deliver registrational and exploratory imaging endpoints on Phase1 to Phase4 clinical trials
  • Lead application of PET imaging for early-stage decision making in Oncology, including novel PET radiotracer development
  • Network in a matrix environment between the four CPEM groups, the Oncology Clinical Development scientists, physicians, and study teams to identify stakeholders' needs to progress GSK assets using imaging
  • Resource the studies appropriately to provide high-quality imaging data
  • Identify and solicit input from external key opinion leaders on various oncology indications and imaging solutions to identify fit-for-purpose endpoints
  • Maintain an appropriate network of key opinion leaders, imaging consultants, vendors, and academic labs to support disease area imaging needs

Why you?

Basic Qualifications:

We are looking for professionals with these required skills to achieve our goals:
  • Bachelor's or master's degree in a biomedical or imaging-related field
  • Experience in clinical imaging using multiple imaging modalities (e.g. CT, PET, MRI)
  • Experience in clinical drug development (preferably including early phase and late phase trials across multiple therapeutic areas)
  • Direct experience delivering imaging endpoints in Oncology clinical trials

    Preferred Qualifications:

    If you have the following characteristics, it would be a plus:
    • Medical or PhD degree with imaging experience in drug development
    • Clinical radiology experience
    • Understanding of cancer biology and experience in Oncology clinical trials
    • Hands-on experience with clinical imaging in a research or hospital environment
    • Experience with PET radiotracer development
    • Experience with vendor capability assessment
    • Successful implementation of a proposed imaging strategy for a biological target or asset
    • Experience in operational aspects of implementing imaging in multicenter clinical trials
    • Experience in authoring scientific articles and clinical development documents
    • Organized and skilled at managing multiple projects concurrently
    • Good communication and influencing skills with a demonstrated capacity to work effectively in multidisciplinary teams

    Why GSK?

    We're uniting science, technology and talent to make a difference in more people's lives, and revolutionizing the way we do R&D.

    We're combining the power of genetic and genomic insights into what causes disease, with the speed and scale of artificial intelligence and machine learning (AI/ML) to make better predictions about who a treatment might work for, and why. We believe this powerful combination of data and technology holds the key to fundamentally transforming medical discovery for the better, improving R&D success rates and shaping how even the most challenging diseases, like neurological conditions and cancer, can be both prevented and treated.

    Our pipeline currently comprises of more than 60vaccines and medicines across four core therapeutic areas including infectious diseases, HIV, oncology and immunology as well at pursuing other science-led opportunities outside our core areas. Many have the potential to be first or best-in-class opportunities for patients and since 2017, we've delivered 13 major approvals and more than doubled the number of potential new vaccines and medicines in Phase 3 and registration to 23.

    In 2021 we delivered four major product approvals: Cabenuva for HIV, Jemperli for endometrial cancer, Xevudy for COVID-19 and Apretude, our new long-acting medicine for HIV prevention.
