  • Experience with organizing and writing sections of regulatory documents.

Personally, this position requires you to be a dedicated and result-oriented team player who enjoys working in an innovative, international, and open-minded environment. You excel in stakeholder management, can easily collaborate cross-departmentally, have a sound personal judgement, and are used to clearly present scientific data.
