Job Description

Join us on our exciting journey! IQVIA™ is The Human Data Science Company™, focused on using data and science to help healthcare clients find better solutions for their patients. Formed through the merger of IMS Health and Quintiles, IQVIA offers a broad range of solutions that harness advances in healthcare information, technology, analytics and human ingenuity to drive healthcare forward.

Statistician - Leeds

Join the Centre of Excellence for Retrospective Studies to 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.

This role will offer you a unique opportunity to work on a novel, large, clinically rich data set in oncology working as a key member of a small, dedicated team. This opportunity arises as a consequence of a partnership between IMS and the healthcare data owners: the context for your work will be the cross-over between the IMS RWI team, the oncology centre and the applications of RWD for life sciences clients.

Primary Responsibilities:

  • Contribute to the development of study protocols, statistical analysis plans (SAPs), programming specification and output documents
  • Clean and prepare extracts from a large-sized real-world healthcare database
  • Conduct statistical analysis on real-world data as specified in the SAP
  • Write-up and present results of statistical analysis
  • Assist in the preparation of abstracts, manuscripts and/or presentations to conferences
  • Contribute to business development activities including proposal development
  • Contribute to improving operational efficiencies of workflows, including writing of internal guidance documents (e.g., SOPs and quality management documents)

Requirements

  • MSc, PhD or equivalent in statistics, biostatistics, epidemiology or in a related discipline
  • Strong statistical programming skills in R
  • Proven experience working with large, individual-level data sets
  • Excellent time management skills, contributing to multiple projects with competing timelines
  • Experience designing and executing prospective or retrospective database studies
  • Commitment to working collaboratively and effectively with people of other disciplines
  • Strong written and verbal communication skills
  • Fluency in English (spoken and written)

Preferred Qualities

  • Exposure to the healthcare and pharmaceutical industries
  • Prior experience working in a consultancy, CRO or other service sector in the healthcare industry
  • Interpersonal, teamwork and communication skills
  • Publications in peer reviewed journals and/or abstracts in scientific conferences

We know that meaningful results require not only the right approach but also the right people. Regardless of your role, we invite you to reimagine healthcare with us. You will have the opportunity to play an important part in helping our clients drive healthcare forward and ultimately improve human health outcomes. Whatever your career goals, we are here to ensure you get there! We invite you to join IQVIA™
