  • A track record of leading epidemiology / observational research / real world studies, ideally across multiple countries or regions;
  • At least an MSc (or equivalent) in statistics, epidemiology, health economics, outcomes / health policy research, or a related discipline - with a strong preference for a PhD;
  • Exposure to Regulatory Affairs / Drug Safety or Pharmacogivilance (PV) issues surrounding drug development;
  • An excellent knowledge of study design and implementation for large-scale epidemiological / observational studies;
  • Experience working on immunology, neurology, inflammation or rare disease studies would be a significant advantage;
  • The ability to relay complex, technical information from real world studies to cross-functional teams, stakeholders and non-technical audiences.
