The Amundsen Consulting Group within IQVIA is an exciting and dynamic consulting practice where you can start or continue your career in healthcare consulting. As a new hire you will be provided on-the-job training that will allow you to develop the analytic skills and business acumen necessary to be successful on client engagements.

Our consulting practice is focused on commercial issues in the U.S. pharmaceutical industry, providing strategic analyses to senior leaders at top U.S. pharmaceutical manufacturers. Our clients rely on our knowledge, experience, and aptitude for problem-solving to optimize strategies across their organizations.  Our ability to leverage and manipulate big data, coupled with our in-depth understanding of a constantly evolving U.S. healthcare system, puts us in a unique position to deliver high-quality insights that address a variety of client needs.

The Role of a Consultant:

The Amundsen Consulting Group recruits Consultants with relevant work experience in consulting, data analytics, or the life sciences industry and degrees from some of the world’s top institutions. Consultants typically begin with a shadow project when they first join, but are quickly expected to contribute to all aspects of client engagements.

The analytic rigor, leadership, and creativity of our Consultants’ work is critical to the success of our engagement teams and our practice as a whole.

  • Designing and performing strategic analyses on Big Data to derive trends, conclusions, and actionable recommendations for clients
  • Leading internal brainstorming sessions and collaborating with engagement team members throughout client engagements
  • Synthesizing results and recommendations from the evaluation of secondary data on markets, physicians, patients, and competitive products
  • Developing and working with sophisticated predictive models
  • Creating reports, presentations and other client deliverables
  • Presenting to client audiences in face-to-face meetings and via teleconference
  • Building professional relationships with members of the client team
  • Actively managing more junior team members work on projects
  • Proactively developing knowledge of the healthcare industry and consulting methodologies
  • Assisting with recruiting new team members and participating in the interview process

An ideal candidate will have: 

  • 3-4 years of work experience in consulting, data analytics, or other relevant areas within the life sciences industry
  • A strong undergraduate academic record (master’s degree is a plus), excellent problem-solving abilities, exceptional communication skills, strong quantitative skills, and be a proven team contributor
  • An interest in and desire to learn about the constantly evolving healthcare industry
  • Good project management, time management and organizational skills
  • Excellent conversational and business English (written and oral)
  • Exceptional IT literacy e.g. Word, PowerPoint, Excel (SQL is a plus)
  • A willingness or ability to travel as needed (10-20% on average)
