Demonstrable knowledge of effective project planning, strong financial acumen, along with the flexibility to manage a virtual team will ensure success within this position.

  • BS degree or equivalent required, preferably in Life Sciences (e.g., Biology, Chemistry, Biochemistry, Nursing, and Pharmacy).
  • Previous experience of working with multiple therapeutic areas, including oncology, cardiology/metabolism, infectious disease, immunology and/or vaccines is preferred.
  • 6 - 8 years clinical trial management/oversight experience in the pharmaceutical industry or CRO.
