As (Associate) GROUP DIRECTOR within our Personalized Healthcare functionyou will be responsible for the Real World Data (RWD) strategies in Ophthalmology, and lead a team of Data Scientists using meaningful data to generate impactful evidence and insights on our molecules/medicines and patients that support R&D, advance scientific and medical knowledge, and enable personalized patient care and access.
The data will be varied in type -- patient-level clinical data, supplemented with deep patient data like omics (e.g. genomics, proteomic), imaging, digital health, etc. Source data will be diverse -- real-world data, including patient registries, electronic medical records, claims, biobanks, and clinical trials. The data science solutions will address molecule and disease area questions that will inform the research and development of our molecules, and support healthcare decisions by patients, physicians, health authorities, payers, and policy-makers. As a leader of the organization, you will also lead or contribute significantly to functional, cross-functional, enterprise-wide or external initiatives that shape our business and healthcare environments. This will require a deep understanding of molecule and disease area strategies, our business, healthcare environments, as well as scientific and technical data science expertise. You will need excellent strategic, leadership, collaboration and communication skills, as well as an entrepreneurial mindset, to work with and through others, to transform the way we use data and analytics to develop and deliver medicines for our patients and to achieve the business objectives.
