Experienced Statistical Specialist in Global Development

Københavnsområdet, Novo Alle 1, 2880 Gladsaxe DK
  • Research
  • Denmark - Søborg

Are you an experienced Statistician with a solid experience within clinical development and a wish to make a difference for millions of people with chronical diseases? Do you thrive with providing high quality statistical guidance bringing clinical projects to submission and the market? Then you may be our new Statistical Specialist.

In Global Development, we are responsible for managing clinical drug development worldwide from early development phases to product launch. We ensure medical, statistical and scientific documentation for clinical submissions and authorities while ensuring that the process lives up to uniform global standards, regulations and business ethics.

About the department
The Biostatistics function in our R&D Global Development organisation currently consists of around 210 Statisticians and Statistical Programmers worldwide. Of these, approximately 160 of us are situated in Denmark.

We are organised in departments supporting each of our large development projects (e.g. GLP-1, Insulin, Obesity or Haemophilia). Novo Nordisk has a broad R&D pipeline and most of our statistical work is done in-house, thus we offer a wide variety of statistical challenges and provide a strong scientific community. In addition, we work closely with our biostatistics affiliates and outsourcing partners as well as our internal stakeholders.

The workplace in Denmark can be either Søborg (Copenhagen) or Aalborg. Please state in your application where of those two places you prefer to work.

The position
As a Specialist within Biostatistics, you are responsible for planning and coordinating both standard, complex and time critical statistical tasks. You are responsible for providing statistical input to project development plans, trial designs, clinical trial protocols, summary documents, publications, risk management plans and other safety reports. You will be involved in presentation and discussion of results both internally and externally and participate in meetings with regulatory authorities and external collaborators.

Coaching of less experienced colleagues is a natural part of being a Specialist and you will also be responsible for coordinating and supervising the work of Clinical Research Associates (CROs) around the world.

Therefore, we expect you to be able to communicate statistical problems and ideas clearly.

Development of methods and processes as well as knowledge sharing is continuously on-going in Novo Nordisk, especially based on the initiative of the employees. We expect you to take part in our dedicated efforts to make Biostatistics a good and challenging place to work. In exchange, we offer great opportunities for on-going training to ensure your continued competency development.

You have a solid theoretical background in statistics corresponding to M.Sc. level and at least five years of experience within clinical research. Statistical consulting experience with biological applications and SAS experience is preferable and we expect you to have an in-depth understanding of practical statistical problems.

You will handle many assignments concurrently and will collaborate with other Statisticians, Statistical Programmers, Medical Doctors and many other skill types so we expect you to work independently, be proactive, flexible and efficient. You have a great sense of perspective and a positive attitude, also when things are moving fast. Experience with project management and supervision of staff is an advantage.

Since you will be participating in cross-disciplinary development teams across country borders we expect you to have the ability to communicate to non-statisticians. That is why good communication skills and fluency in English is required.

Working at Novo Nordisk
Research & Development is vital to Novo Nordisk’s continuous growth. Your ambition and passion is therefore essential to achieve our goal of creating better lives for people living with chronic diseases. That is why working here is rewarding for us and for you. We strive for always keeping our positive and collaborative atmosphere in our daily work and there is good work-life-balance. You will work in global project structure and it could require limited travel days depending on the project phase.
