Pharmaceutical Science & Preclinical Jobs

What is scientific/preclinical in life sciences?

Preclinical refers to the early phase of the drug lifecycle that happens before clinical trials start. In the preclinical phase, scientists collect and analyse drug safety data and perform iterative testing to analyse the safety and feasibility of the drug for humans.

What do scientific & preclinical jobs involve?

Preclinical scientists run experiments to find out if there is enough evidence for a product to be used as a medical treatment. The types of roles within this field can depend on the type of pharmaceutical product being analysed and the size of the company. For example, the day-to-day responsibilities of a preclinical scientist involve collecting and evaluating information about a drug to obtain preliminary information about its efficacy, toxicity and pharmacokinetics. This evidence is used to report on the safety of the treatment to regulatory authorities, which is required for employer, sponsor and government safety regulations and policies.

Candidates applying for preclinical jobs are usually required to have a BSc, MSc or PhD in a science related field and have up-to-date scientific knowledge and experience. Core competencies that employers look for include good research and communication skills.
