Senior Safety Scientist

You will provide safety science and pharmacovigilance input to assigned molecules across the Roche portfolio and at all development phases from early through to post-marketing as a member of the Portfolio Clinical Safety (PCS) group. 

Working in collaboration with the Safety Strategy Program Leader (SSL) as a member of a safety team for a molecule and/or PCS Management you will provide essential safety oversight and input into all safety related aspects of study management across the development portfolio as well as contribute to new drug applications / regulatory filings. In the post-market setting, you will monitor and communicate the evolving safety profile of Roche medicines and will contribute to the safety science deliverables that maintain our license to operate including signal evaluation, ongoing regulatory filings, benefit-risk assessment and safety risk management. You may also represent Clinical Safety as a subject matter expert (SME) for key processes. 

As a Senior Safety Scientist, you will be supported by supervision from more experienced colleagues but are expected to work independently on less complex deliverables. You will be expected to continue learning about safety science and pharmacovigilance to develop your  understanding of the contribution of safety activities to overall drug development goals.
