  • Define statistical standards: Define statistical standards and work together with Medical Analytics statistical programming to build our internal SAS macro library.
  • Explore innovative statistical methods: Delve deeper into various research questions and consider alternative statistical methods.

This job might be for you if:

In cross-functional and cross-company alliance settings or with senior leadership and external scientific experts, be able to drive and lead discussions and present results.
  • You have the ability to roll up your sleeves and get the work done: Be able to simultaneously work on current problems while thinking of future solutions.
