Are you interested in working with biological data and would you like to be part of a future with a strong pipeline of products, have a huge variety of tasks and great opportunities to learn and engage in a strong scientific community? Then you may be our new Statistician.
In Global Development, we take responsibility for new products based on proteins and peptides from early development phases to product launch. We are responsible for managing clinical drug development worldwide, securing that the process lives up to uniform global standards, regulations and business ethics. We work in global project teams with focus on delivering viable products that make a difference to patients and ultimately benefit society.
About the department
The Biostatistics function in our R&D clinical development organisation currently consists of around 210 Statisticians and Statistical Programmers worldwide. Of these, approximately 160 of us are situated in Denmark, where we are organised in departments supporting each of our large development projects (e.g. Semaglutide, 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. We work closely with our biostatistics affiliates and outsourcing partners as well as stakeholders.
The workplace in Denmark can be in either Søborg or Aalborg. Please state in your application where of those two places you prefer to work.
As Statistician, you are responsible for planning and coordinating both standard and more complex and time critical statistical tasks. You can be involved in a wide range of statistical assignments such as providing input to clinical trial protocols, planning statistical analyses, support creation of summary documents and develop publications and programming of various analyses. You will be involved in presentation and discussion of results and act as contact to external collaborators.
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 the maintenance of Biostatistics as a good and challenging place to work.
In exchange we of course offer great opportunities for on-going training to ensure the continued competency development of our employees.
You have a theoretical background in statistics corresponding to M.Sc. level. Experience within clinical research is an advantage. You have experience with practical applications of biostatistical methodology and statistical software including SAS.
You will handle many assignments concurrently and will collaborate with other Statisticians, Statistical Programmers 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 statistical issues and ideas 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.
