What you will do

  • Manage the statistics support to one or more projects/sponsor programs of work, ensuring that needs are fully met by expert and timely statistical consultancy and support.
  • Provides expert review of study designs, analysis plans and reports.
  • Assist sponsors in the design of clinical trials, including statistical sections of the study protocol, randomization methodology and writing statistical analysis plans.
  • Liaise with internal departments, sponsors and other third parties regarding statistical issues and reporting requirements.


What you will bring to the role 

  • Must be computer literate and numerate with a proven ability to adapt to various computer systems
  • Hands-on expert level project statistician experienced in providing statistical leadership to projects.
  • Expert in a broad range of statistical applications across all phases (I to IV) of Clinical Research with a thorough knowledge of regulatory standards, SAS and other software applications.
  • Well developed consultancy and facilitation skills are required together with key competencies in customer focus, delivering on commitments, building strong relationships, communicating and influencing, embracing innovation and change, building capability and participative leadership.
