Our client is a small/med-sized Pharmaceutical company that have recently restructured and centralised their operations, in Cambridge. The Epidemiology department is small, with just 2 individuals, one of which will be leaving soon due to a maternity leave. Hence the reason for the open contract.

Due to the workload, after the initial 12 months, this position can be extended, or a permanent position could open up (depending on your preference).

  • Build, maintain and leverage networks focusing on the use of epidemiological expertise to foster high quality research. Leverage networks with external academic / service provider partners nationally and internationally and build the Company reputation in the conduct of well-designed pharmacoepidemiological research
  • Continue to develop own technical and professional standards and support colleagues within all areas of the business



  • Educated to PhD level in epidemiology (or MSc level with substantial relevant experience)
