Due to the continued growth of our development pipeline we have opportunities for an exceptional statistician to join our Biostatistics group.
As a Statistician at Roche you will be a key strategic partner in multi-disciplinary teams, working with colleagues based both locally and globally developing drugs in all phases. You will help designing and analyzing clinical studies, contribute to clinical development plans, and participate in decisions related to the transition of molecules along the value chain.
- be responsible for providing statistical expertise and strategic drug development leadership for clinical development projects
- operate in global teams as Study Statistician and you are directly responsible for the statistical integrity, adequacy, and accuracy of the clinical studies within the project
- partner with clinicians and scientists to generate novel data driven insights into our understanding of human diseases and how our drugs work, based on a wealth of clinical, biomarker and imaging data.
- may be responsible for providing statistical input to teams preparing for health authority submissions, leadership of other statisticians and related colleagues in health authority activities and participating in health authority interactions.
This is an opportunity to own your career development and be actively encouraged and supported through continual learning opportunities .
You will be encouraged to pursue applied research on drug development opportunities and challenges as a continued part of your role. You will be given the freedom to discuss ideas and collaborate with over 200 Biostatisticians within Roche and other Data Scientists on drug development opportunities/challenges, as well as with key academics with whom we have consultancy arrangements.
For this role, you have qualifications that have given you the strong basis for your career so far (e.g. MSc or PhD in Statistics or related discipline) coupled with a programming language (e.g. R, Python, SAS) that allows you to evaluate assumptions when designing clinical trials and then model / explore data arising from interventional or observational clinical studies.
An asset would be experience in study design and the analysis of data as they arise in drug development. You may also have experience of using methods for longitudinal data modeling, survival analysis, and Bayesian methodology. For previous vacancies we’ve had success appointing statisticians from a range of backgrounds (e.g. academic settings, clinical research groups, diagnostics industry, CROs) so your own experience could have been gained outside of the traditional pharmaceutical industry.
To be successful you will need to provide evidence of conducting statistical research through your qualifications, current or previous positions.
We are keen to hear from those who have performed novel statistical work (perhaps unpublished) that has provided innovative approaches for your project team to consider. You want to take on a role in a company that will provide you with opportunities and support, but then leave you to get on and make the most of those opportunities globally.
