Are you an expert in in vivo pharmacology within the metabolic disease research area? Would you like to apply your expertise in a global company that is accelerating innovative science and turn ideas into life changing medicines? Join us to discover future treatment of Cardiovascular, Renal and Metabolic diseases!

Working at AstraZeneca means being entrepreneurial, thinking big and working together to make the impossible a reality. We are now recruiting high calibre Associate Principal Scientist to join the in vivo metabolism bioscience team within Research and Early Development Cardiovascular, Renal and Metabolism (CVRM). The position is placed at AstraZeneca's dynamic R&D site in Gothenburg, Sweden.

CVRM is one of the three main therapeutic research areas within AstraZeneca which deliver candidate drugs into clinical development. CVRM Metabolism Bioscience department has a dynamic environment that fosters collaboration and innovation.
