Job Title:                    Associate / Senior / Principal - Statistical Scientist

Salary:                        Market/Negotiable

Location:                    Roche Products' offices in Welwyn Garden City

Closing Date:             23rd December 2018

Due to the continued growth of our pipeline we have opportunities for exceptional statisticians at multiple levels to join our Biostatistics group.

As a Biostatistician at Roche you will be a key strategic partner in multi-disciplinary teams, working with colleagues based both locally and globally developing drugs in Phase 1 to 3 trials.

For those with existing experience you will be responsible for providing drug development and statistical expertise to the design and analysis of clinical studies which may extend to the entire global development program. You may also be responsible for providing statistical input to teams preparing for health authority submissions, leadership of other statisticians and related colleagues in health authority activities and participating in health authority interactions.

For those without (or more limited) direct experience of designing and analysing clinical trials we would be interested to learn about how your existing skills and other experience (e.g. during your degree) could be of use at Roche. In return, we will be able to provide you with full training and support to develop your career as a Biostatistician at Roche.

You will be encouraged to pursue applied research on drug development opportunities and challenges as a continued part of your role, either alongside your project work or even as a formal rotation into our statistical methodology group.  You will be given the freedom to discuss ideas and collaborate with over 200 Biostatisticians within Roche and other Data Scientists on drug development opportunities/challenges, as well as with key academics with whom we have consultancy arrangements.


You have qualifications that have given you the strong basis for your career so far (e.g. PhD in Statistics or related discipline) coupled with a programming language (e.g. SAS, R) that allows you to evaluate assumptions when designing clinical trials and then model/ explore data arising from clinical trials.

For the more senior roles you will need to have experience of study design and data analysis from different phases of drug development. You may also have experience in specialist areas such as analysis of biomarker data. For previous vacancies we've had success appointing statisticians from a range of backgrounds (e.g. academic settings, clinical research groups, CROs) so your own experience could have been gained outside of the traditional pharmaceutical industry.

Roche is an equal opportunity employer.
