Competitive salary and benefits

Are you a Statistician – experienced or in the beginning of your career? Do you have an appetite to use statistical methods to develop life-changing medicines? If you would like to apply your expertise in a global company pushing the boundaries of science – join us!

AstraZeneca is a global, science-led, patient-focused biopharmaceutical company that focuses on the discovery, development and commercialisation of prescription medicines for some of the world’s most serious disease. But we’re more than one of the world’s leading pharmaceutical companies.

We work on some of the most complex and interesting challenges. A fast-paced and agile team, we are empowered and trusted to innovate and experiment. With access to our extensive capabilities and comprehensive pipeline, you’ll be involved in countless submissions and a wide range of engaging projects along the complete drug development process.

We are offering opportunities for Statisticians and Statistical Leaders at several different career levels, depending on your previous experience. You will join a global, diverse and cross-functional environment where you will get personal and professional development.

In this role, we will give you the chance to utilise your statistical expertise in the design, analysis, and interpretation of clinical trial programs; submission and defence of regulatory filings; and the generation of evidence to support product commercialisation and reimbursement.

Main Duties and Responsibilities

You will use your statistical know-how to contribute to the design and progress of clinical trial programs. You may already be equipped to lead statistical employees, either by technical leadership or line management. We offer a role suited perfectly for your competence.

Your responsibilities will include:

  • Contribute to or lead the statistical thinking, analysis and reporting to relevant groups in product and study teams
  • Develop design options and provide high-quality information for the business through partnership with internal and external experts
  • Representing AstraZeneca to Health Authorities and Reimbursement & Payer Organisations for specific projects
  • Apply expert skills to investigate and use standard, as well as novel, statistical approaches for relevant statistical issues

Essential Requirements

We are looking for an individual who can focus on solving challenging problems through teamwork and partnerships. You are a specialist, or seek to be a specialist in your field, and you know that the best results are achieved by utilising the strengths of every individual.

  • You have a Master’s or Doctorate degree in Statistics, Biostatistics, Mathematics or similar area
  • You possess excellent interpersonal skills, especially when communicating statistical concepts to non-statisticians

Why AstraZeneca?

There’s no better place to make a difference to medicine, patients and society. An inclusive culture that champions diversity and collaboration, and always committed to lifelong learning, growth and development. We’re on an exciting journey to pioneer the future of healthcare.
