And are you ready to join a team of data scientists using statistical analyses, machine learning, and other exploratory approaches for analysing data to improve people’s lives? Then this may be your opportunity to pursue an exciting career in a global organisation.

About the department
The Data Analytics department was established in 2017 with a focus on real world data (RWD) and advanced analytics. We analyse many different data sources to generate evidence to support clinical drug development projects and launched products. You will be joining a team of highly professional, engaged and motivated data scientists.

The department of Data Analytics is part of Data Science in Global Development and located in Søborg, Denmark. In Global Development, we are responsible for managing clinical drug development worldwide from early development phases to product launch and beyond. We provide medical and scientific documentation for clinical submissions and authorities while ensuring that the process lives up to global standards, regulations and business ethics.

The position
We are right now looking for Data Scientists on both senior and specialist levels. As a Data Scientist you will contribute with your advanced analytical skills to a team of data scientists that, together with epidemiologists and stakeholders from across the organisation, create real world evidence from data. Our data come from digital health initiatives, in-licensed real-world databases, observational studies and from other sources.

You will be responsible for writing, documenting and maintaining code in R, Python and SQL (also on Spark) to visualise and analyse data, and continuously deliver results. Your duties will be diverse and will include classical statistical analyses, machine learning, and other exploratory approaches. Part of the job is to continuously update your knowledge of analytical methodologies and to further develop and implement these methods into your daily work.

Moreover, you are responsible for communicating your results and findings in a clear and convincing way both internally and in external publications.

As a Data Scientist in our department you will experience a culture where collaboration, scientific discussions and a focus on quality is high on the agenda, and where creative thinking and daily problem solving is key to improve the way we work and succeed.

You have a Master’s degree in Biostatistics, Mathematics, Engineering, Computer science, Data Science, Life sciences or equivalent and preferably a PhD degree in a field relevant for the position. In addition, you have 3+ years of experience from the pharmaceutical, medical or biological area, with managing, analysing, documenting and programming comprehensive data.

You have strong analytical and programming skills and have experience in transforming millions of rows of data by writing advanced, well-performing and maintainable code in SQL, R and Python. You know how to get good performance from relational (and NOSQL) databases and preferably also Spark. Experience with git, Linux, creating dashboards using R/Shiny or other software, project coordination and technical writing is preferred.

We emphasise accountability and reaching goals through a collaborative effort, thus it is essential that you use your good interpersonal and communication skills to achieve results together with others. You enjoy responsibility and complete your assignments proactively and within timelines. Finally, you communicate fluently in English, both orally and in writing.
