About the department

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
Novo Nordisk is consolidating our access to RWD in Global Development. You will be our first Principal Data Steward, building and developing our RWD strategy including the identification, quality assessment, licensing and documentation of relevant sources of RWD in a cross functional collaboration between several internal stakeholders in Novo Nordisk.

You have experience assessing the quality of RWD and understand the potential use of RWD in drug development, regulatory filings and price negotiations. You know how to manage several stakeholders (internal and external) and enjoy working in a dynamic cross-functional environment.

We emphasise accountability and reaching goals through a collaborative effort, thus it is essential that you are able to use your good interpersonal and communication skills to achieve results together with others.
