Full time
As an Associate Director you will be supporting our internal Patient-Centered Outcomes Research (PCOR) needs. Positioned within HEOR, we evaluate and generate empirical evidence to strengthen global development and commercialization activities. Perform activities to understand the patient experience in terms of how they feel, function and survive, including symptom evolution and how that in turn impacts functioning, and health-related quality of life. Our unique and important patient insights will inform patient-centered holistic measurement strategies in clinical trials and real-world evidence studies.

A typical day may include:
  • Ensuring our patient-focused approach across product lifecycles addressing the needs of all key partners (patients, families, healthcare, professionals, regulators, and payors).
  • Collaborating with Clinical Development, Regulatory Affairs and Commercial to understand patients experiences in target populations of interest. This will be used to inform the conceptualization of clinical benefit supported by holistic measurement strategies for product approval, labeling, patient access and medical differentiation.
  • Assessing literature and existing Patient Centered Outcomes (PCOs), conducting gap analyses and crafting and overseeing PCOR activities to address those gaps.
  • Demonstrating measurement science expertise to ensure the development of treatments that meaningfully address aspects of disease that are most important to patients. You will utilize your in-depth knowledge of the FDA's Patient Focused Drug Development (PFDD) and EMA's Patient-Reported Outcomes (PRO) and Health-Related Quality of Life reflection papers. Support teams in PCO drug labeling strategies; including developing questions to the agencies, producing PCO evidence dossiers for regulatory submissions, and attendance to meetings.
  • Reflecting on patients' perspectives on the benefits and risks of treatment in drug evaluation and ensuring that the information that emerges from our development programs accurately represents those and is directly relevant to patients' treatment decisions..

This role might be for you if:
  • You are a recognized authority in PCO selection, development, validation and demonstration of clinically significant change.
  • You like to develop solutions to problems of unusual complexity often requiring a high level of resourcefulness, creativity and innovativeness
  • You are at ease with an abundance of detail and complexity, yet mindful of the big picture and able to align your efforts within the framework of a broader strategy
  • You have the innate ability to balance multiple projects and initiatives, prioritize them and execute them independently, while excelling at keeping all partners advised and engaged

To be considered for this position you must have a PhD, PharmD, or MD required with minimum of 4 years' experience in pharma/biotech, consulting, or academic settings in PCOR. You must effectively communicate mixed methods (qualitative and quantitative), and statistical key findings to technical and non-technical partners. A PhD in clinical/health psychology, health services research, or a related field is preferred.
