Formed through the merger of IMS Health and Quintiles, IQVIA offers a broad range of solutions that harness the power of healthcare data, domain expertise, transformative technology, and advanced analytics to drive healthcare forward.

We have a number of new and exciting Senior Epidemiology opportunities within our fast growing and highly successful Real World & Late Phase Outcomes Research team here at IQVIA.

Within IQVIA, the Real-World Evidence Solutions (RWES) business unit employs over 1,000 dedicated staff to design, implement and manage real-world and post-marketing studies.

Working as a Senior Epidemiologist in our team, you’ll work closely with global clients and other functional groups by providing epidemiology and outcomes research leadership for observational research on the natural history of disease and comparative safety, effectiveness and cost of medical treatment. You’ll also be involved in designing methodologically sound studies to meet project objectives and regulatory and payer requirements. Additionally, you’ll be conducting and supervising analyses, evaluation and reporting of studies.

  • Independently generating content and direction for business development proposals with input from senior staff as needed.
  • Interacting with clients as warranted, with senior staff involvement as needed.
  • Representing IQVIA externally through conference presentations.

To be successful in this role you’ll need to have a Masters Degree or PhD in public health, epidemiology, outcomes research, health economics or a relevant scientific field, and relevant work experience.

You’ll also need to have :

  • Ability to design, plan and conduct observational studies of comparative effectiveness, safety and cost.
  • Excellent oral and written communication skills.
