Function Group: R&D / Biology Scientist


For a Belgian Biopharma company, world renowned for its scientific excellence and active in over 40 countries, we are looking for a (Senior) Toxicology Study Monitor. Due to their heavy and successful investments in drug development programs, they are looking for a professional to successfully sett-up, monitor and evaluate external toxicology studies. In this position, you will be based in their Non-Clinical Toxicology group and work closely together with multiple project teams on different drug development programs.


In this position you will have a high level of independence and responsibility, as well as a big impact on internal drug development programs. As Toxicology Study Monitor, you will be directly liaising with the different internal project teams of multiple drug development programs. Based on their needs, you will work-out necessary toxicology studies, identify and liaise with external partners to set-up collaborations and finalise study set-ups, monitor running studies and scientifically evaluate and communicate results to the internal project teams.

To be more precise, you will have responsibility over the design, initiation, scheduling, protocol development, interactions with test facilities and test sites, coordination of study material shipments, compliance with internal policies, quality, regulatory, animal welfare and in-house SOP, tracking phases and contributor reports. You will record, escalate, and manage study-related issues, including their resolution together with internal/external subject matter experts. You will monitor the study progress with the CRO, circulate relevant documents to all contributing scientists, analyse, interpret, contextualise and present the results and ensure the on-time release of the pivotal final report.


In this role, you will bring following qualifications:

  • Master in Veterinary Sciences / Biology / Biomedical Sciences / Pharmacy or equivalent
  • Previous experience in independently setting-up, monitoring and evaluating of in-vivo toxicology studies
  • Strong communicative skills
  • An energetic, innovative and flexible personality
  • Good organisational skills and scientific integrity

Ideally, you have already worked as part of a CRO on:

  • Neurology and inflammatory projects
  • Multiple animal models, preferably non-human primates
  • Both small and large molecules


This position will offer you the opportunity to contribute directly to internal innovative drug development programs and therefore have a strong involvement and overview on the whole process. You will have a high level of independence and responsibility, where the environment trusts and counts on your previous experience and scientific expertise. Unlike at other companies, this role will not limit you to operational aspects, as a scientific involvement and innovative mindset are required. Furthermore you will be able to develop yourself in multiple therapeutic areas, work on both small and large molecule innovator drugs and contribute to the development of drugs that will treat the causes rather than the symptoms of serious diseases. With all this comes an annual salary between €60,000-, and €80,000,- , and a substantial package of secondary benefits.
