Headquartered in Basel, Switzerland, Roche is one of the world’s leading
research-focused healthcare groups in the fields of pharmaceuticals and
diagnostics. At our development site in the United States in Nutley, New we
are currently looking for statisticians to support our newly formed department
The successful candidates will provide high level statistical support to drug
projects in the early phases of clinical development within one or several
Disease Biology Areas. On project level teams you will engage in strategic
discussions regarding the early clinical development of a compound even
before entry into man and contribute to clinical development plans. You will
also be responsible for early clinical development studies (entry into human
studies, experimental medicine studies, Proof of Concept, Proof of Mechanism
studies, etc) as well as all clinical pharmacology studies during the life cycle of
the compound. In close collaboration with statistical programmers and other
statisticians you lead the efforts to ensure that the results of statistical and
other analyses are of high quality and available in time to support decision
making of the project teams. Strong analytical skills allow you to advice teams
on the correct interpretation of data from various types of experiments. You
contribute to the writing of protocols as well as clinical study reports and you
participate in health authority interactions during the early phases of drug
development. Practical experience in a wide variety of statistical
methodologies will enable you to contribute to the development of innovative
study designs and new techniques for data analyses.
Who you are:
(*) University Education (MSc or PhD) in Statistics or a very similar area.
(*) Proven experience in statistical data analyses in the life sciences and in
communicating statistical principles to non-statisticians.
(*) Experience in using statistical software (SAS and/or S-Plus/R).
(*) Communicates clearly and effectively in written reports, data
presentations and meetings as required.
(*) Fluent in English, written and spoken.
(*) Several years of experience working as a statistician in early or late
phases of clinical drug development in a pharmaceutical environment.
(*) Strong and proven interest in the application and development of new
statistical methodologies. Experience in practical applications of Bayesian
Statistics or adaptive designs would be an asset.
(*) Experience in working in an interdisciplinary and international environment.
