Our customer, a leading international pharmaceutical company with headquarters in Basel, is looking for a Data Scientist

Our ability to accurately quantify changes in disease state determines how well we can demonstrate that our drugs improve the lives of patients. However, many traditional disease assessments are notoriously unreliable. 

We are thus investigating the use of sensors to quantify disease, enabling the use of these novel technologies in clinical trials. We are seeking a data specialist capable of analyzing and integrating data from mobile medical devices, large multivariate clinical data sets and real-world data (such as medical claims) and using modern analysis techniques to improve how we extract medically relevant information from this wealth of data. 

Your main tasks:

  • Evaluating and improving performance of published and new algorithms on clinical datasets
  • Establishing software frameworks for efficient and effective data exploration
  • Scientific publication of results

Your background:

  • MSc with 2-3 years of experience or PhD in computational science, biostatistics, or related field
  • Experience in working with complex numerical challenges/ tasks from clinical trials
  • Fluency in Python, R, and/or Matlab
  • Interest in Digital Health (wearables, ambient monitors, etc) for device assessement

Assignment start: asap

Assignment duration: until the end of 2018 with a very good possibility for contract prolongation for another year

If you have the required experience and if you would like to apply for this interesting position, please send your complete application documents (CV, testimonials, diplomas) to janine.cabrera(at) or apply online.

We are looking forward to getting to know you!
