For our customer a big pharmaceutical company in Basel we are looking for a highly qualified Real World Data Scientist
As a REAL WORLD DATA SCIENTIST/Epidemiologist within our Personalized HealthCare function, you will work with meaningful data to generate impactful evidence and insights on our molecules/medicines and patients, that support R&D, advance scientific and medical knowledge, and enable personalized patient care and access. This position will primarily focus on leading and executing the Real World Data Strategy and Projects to support programs across therapeutic areas (e.g. oncology and neuroscience).
You will collaborate with peers within the function and across the organization (e.g. Clinical Science, Medical Affairs, Market Access, Drug Safety, company affiliates) to design and execute studies, and implement analyses to address molecule and disease area questions. Data sources will be mainly patient level medical data that arise from observational settings, for example, electronic medical records (EMR), registries and claims data.
