It is an exciting time to be a part of Team Lilly! Do you have experience working in a GLP environment designing and supervising the conduct of toxicology studies? The Nonclinical Study Management Team (NSMT) is a hardworking and diverse team looking for an experienced Toxicology study monitor with expertise in management of nonclinical safety assessment study conduct, including the fundamentals of Good Laboratory Practices (GLP) and data interpretation of nonclinical toxicology studies. We need someone who understands the purpose, components, and outcomes of successful drug development and safety assessment. You will be the primary scientific, technical and procedural contact for studies conducted externally at third party organizations (TPOs). To enable toxicology studies, study managers must understand the technical capabilities of individual TPOs and provide scientific input/expertise on whether studies can be performed as described in the protocol, especially those containing novel procedures.

Responsibilities include establishment of, and adherence to, non-clinical study timelines, monitoring of study conduct at the TPO via communication with the Study Director and/or onsite observation, and real time communication with the Toxicology ADME/ToxPath/Drug Disposition (ATP) team throughout study planning, execution and reporting.

Study Design and Protocol Development:
