Bristol-Myers Squibb Princeton, NJ

About the Job


BMS is seeking an Imaging Scientist with expertise in Positron Emission Tomography (PET). The Research Investigator will be part of a team of imaging scientists engaged in characterization of new PET tracers (assessments of specificity, etc). The Research Investigator will also contribute to more traditional molecular imaging biomarker identification and assay development across the portfolio. The successful candidate will be responsible for the entirety of the preclinical imaging experiment (study design, data acquisition, analysis, and interpretation) as well as the translation of these biomarkers to clinical trials. He/she will collaborate with clinicians, biologists and other scientists across all therapeutic areas. The candidate will be expected to participate in team meetings and present scientific results.

·         Extensive knowledge of imaging applications to preclinical imaging is required, in particular tracer development.

·         Experience with multi-modality imaging is desirable.

·         Sound knowledge in chemistry and biology for developing successful imaging biomarkers for drug discovery programs is preferable.

·         Ability to work as a member of a multi-disciplinary team, demonstrated problem-solving skills, good communication skills, and flexibility to succeed in a dynamic and changing environment are necessary.
