Description

This position can be based anywhere in the United States

No other global pharmaceutical company is focused solely on the brain. Lundbeck’s global legacy in neuroscience goes back six decades, and with it comes a tremendous level of expertise, commitment and energy – not to mention, responsibility to patients. We are radically changing the future, investing in long-term plays in research. As we define tomorrow, there is no question that the here and now is critical to bridge the future. Therefore, we continue to bring forward therapies to address symptomatic improvements to help people live better lives, while simultaneously pursuing disease-modifying treatments in pursuit of a cure. 

Lundbeck continues to form international partnerships that can maximize research and development as well as the company’s ability to deliver therapies to patients. Lundbeck entered into an alliance with Takeda in September 2007 to develop and commercialize a portfolio of compounds in the U.S. and Japan for treatment of mood and anxiety disorders. In 2011, Lundbeck formed a global alliance with Otsuka to co-develop and co-commercialize two late-stage psychiatry products in the U.S. and other markets, as well as up to three other early stage innovative psychiatric and neuroscience compounds from Lundbeck’s pipeline.

In the past seven years, Lundbeck has launched three psychiatry products addressing schizophrenia and major depressive disorder.

Lundbeck operates within a unique corporate ownership structure: our company is 70% owned by a foundation established by the wife of our founder to ensure our continued ability to conduct difficult and time-intensive research. The Lundbeck Foundation contributes nearly $100 million to life sciences research each year and an additional 1 million euro for The Brain Prize to advance neuroscience research.
