Your new company
A top tier pharmaceutical company with more than 40 molecules in clinical trials and several imminent launches are looking to bring in several epidemiologists to their Real World Evidence & epidemiology department to work on a wide range of studies across their portfolio and support their pipeline development.

Your new role
You will be joining an established team, contributing to the analysis & interpretation of real world data & observational studies, as well as preparing abstracts and presentations.

This is initially a 12-month contract that is likely to extend / could be converted to a permanent role if desired. The role is currently fully home based and is likely to have a lot of flexibility for home working going forward.

  • Working closely with internal stakeholders across different teams / departments, including medical, regulatory, drug safety, etc;
  • Provide data analysis expertise, using advanced statistical and/or Machine Learning approaches;
  • Support epidemiology projects to help shape the company's drug development portfolio.

What you'll need to succeed
As well as strong problem solving and organisational skills you should have:

  • An MSc, PhD, MPH/MS in epidemiology, statistics, public health or similar - or equivalent experience
  • Hands-on analytical & statistical skills;
  • Pharmaceutical industry and/or CRO experience is a plus, but strong academic or public health/health insurance experience is also valuable;
  • Excellent written / verbal communication and interpersonal skills;
  • The ability to work in an environment with changing priorities and tight deadlines;
  • Experience with SAS, R, Stata or similar languages for data analysis;
  • Experience of working with large databases, eg electronic health records / claims databases / CPRD, etc.
