    100+ quantitative scientists in Novartis are supporting early clinical development projects in 10 therapeutic areas every day, who transform clinical data into analyses that build the basis for making innovative drugs accessible for patients. We collaborate with cross-functional international teams and develop models characterizing exposure-response, disease progression and biomarker response. These models allow optimal decision making on key development questions such as dose, regimen and benefit risk ratio.

    Early Development Analytics (EDA) is a fully integrated (Biostatistics, Digital & Discovery, and Pharmacometrics) function providing quantitative leadership for early clinical development at Novartis across disease areas. Come to an industry leader where you will have the opportunity to provide quantitative insight for early clinical drug development in Oncology within EDA. The successful candidate will lead the planning, execution and delivery of innovative pharmacometric strategies for projects in early clinical development oncology. They’ll be responsible for the discussion and implementation of pharmacometric methodologies that address the research and development objectives on the assigned projects. Position will be filled at level commensurate with experience – (May be hired at the Principal and Senior Principal levels)

    What you’ll be doing
    • Develop, write and execute pharmacometric analysis plans, and deliver reports on results.
