This two-year Fellowship Program in collaboration at Northeastern University and GSK Oncology is designed to offer Doctor of Pharmacy graduates an in-depth experience in a biopharmaceutical industry setting.
GSK Oncology is committed to the discovery and development of new and potentially life-changing therapies for patients with cancer. Our vision is for people with cancer to not only to live, but to live well, because we are delivering innovative and transformational medicines. GSK’s approach to oncology is focused on innovation in the areas of immuno-oncology, cell therapy, cancer epigenetics, synthetic lethality.
The Pharmacy Postdoctoral Fellow (fellow) will join the Regulatory Affairs team for a two-year commitment, where they will be immersed in Regulatory Affairs activities. The focus of the fellowship will be in Regulatory Strategy, with 3-month rotations available in other regulatory functions (Operations, Advertising and Promotion, and Chemistry Manufacturing and Controls [CMC]) of their choosing throughout the fellowship. Rotations may be extended at the discretion of their rotation supervisor, and will be scheduled during periods of high activity in the group in order to enhance the fellow’s experience. In the second year, the fellow may also have the optional opportunity to spend up to 3 months in another department.
