Job description

Epidemiologist / Real-World Data Scientist

Join IQVIA as an Epidemiologist and help us deliver high‑quality scientific research to our clients in the global pharmaceutical and healthcare industries. 

Our goal is to contribute to the body of scientific evidence that allows medical practitioners to treat patients in the most effective way, and health systems to include as many patients as possible. We use data, collected for clinical (and other) purposes to answer research questions such as "which treatment works best in the real world, beyond the clinical trial setting?" Our fast paced and supportive environment attracts individuals who care deeply about the quality, timeliness and subsequent impact of their work; who thrive when exposed to the scale and variety of scientific challenges we face.

Primary Responsibilities

  • Contribute to the design, execution and reporting of real-world database (RWD) studies
  • Contribute to the writing of study protocols, statistical analysis plans and study reports
  • Provide scientific and methodological expertise to teams and clients on various aspects of study design to address research questions
  • Develop abstracts, manuscripts and/or presentations to conferences for projects
  • Contribute to business development activities and proposal writing
  • Contribute to improving operational efficiencies of workflows, including writing of internal guidance documents (e.g., SOPs and quality management documents)

Requirements

  • MPH, MSc, PhD or an equivalent degree in epidemiology, public health or a related discipline
  • Experience designing and executing prospective or retrospective database studies
  • Commitment to working collaboratively and effectively with people of other disciplines
  • Excellent time management skills, contributing to multiple projects with competing timelines
  • Strong written and verbal communication skills
  • Fluency in English (spoken and written)

Preferred Qualities

  • Exposure to working with large real-world healthcare databases
  • Excellent communication skills
  • Prior experience working in a consultancy, CRO or healthcare services
  • Publications in peer reviewed journals and/or abstracts in scientific conferences
