Senior Statistician - AstraZeneca (Wilmington, Boston or Sweden)

Senior Statistician
Highly competitive packages + relocation assistance
USA (Wilmington / Boston) or Sweden (Södertälje / Mölndal / Lund)

Here is your chance to play a hugely influential role as part of AstraZeneca’s industry-leading Discovery Statistics group.

About the role

We are looking for a number of talented Statisticians to strengthen our global Discovery Enabling Capabilities and Sciences (DECS) Statistics Department , which provides innovative technologies and direct project support to our drug discovery and development activities. Based at one of our key sites across the world, you will focus on integrating statistics fully into the workflow of the Discovery function. It’s a newly created role that will see you ensuring that project teams have the right level of statistical input, and identifying new opportunities for adding value and implementing best practice.

About you

Qualified to at least MSc and preferably PhD level in a subject with a significant statistical component, you’ll have proven technical skills in a similar role. Although experience of the pharmaceutical industry would be a plus, it’s more important that you can show the ability to provide statistical input that delivers real business impact. For roles in Södertälje and Wilmington, experience of regulatory toxicology would be an advantage. Expert knowledge of a package like SAS, R or S-Plus is essential – and so too are the communication, presentation and consultancy skills to work effectively with scientists and managers at all levels of the business.

About AstraZeneca

As one of the world's leading pharmaceutical companies, AstraZeneca is focused on providing innovative, effective medicines that make a real difference in important areas of healthcare. We employ 66,000 staff around the world and spend $16 million every working day on research and development.

AstraZeneca’s Discovery Statistics Department delivers creative statistical solutions to a wide range of business problems. Our thinking helps to exploit the maximum value from research experiments by improving the quality of data generated and the consistency of interpretation, whilst reducing costs, saving time and contributing to portfolio diversity.
