They operate in the complex sector of clinical, medical, and healthcare markets, provide expertise in areas including drug design processes, disease modelling and governance.

  • Project experience in quantitative data analysis including substantial use of R and SAS. Demonstrable experience in trial data is advantageous.
  • Background using statistical methods.

  • An interest / passion for healthcare.

With customers based around the world, some international travel to attend client meetings or conferences is expected (possibly two to three times a year). Further, a key profile point will be attention to detail; understanding data and being able to extrapolate trends and build quantitative models is essential.
