Principal Statistical Programmer

Do you want to join a skilled informal team enthusiastic about programming?

Would you like to work directly towards a submission with the latest CDISC standards and SAS programming? Do you already have experience in statistical programming and seek new challenges? If so, we have just the perfect match for you. LEO Pharma has set an ambitious goal to become the world leader within dermatology with an exciting 2025 strategy and a strong pipeline - well balanced with many projects in early-stage as well as in late-stage development. As Principal Statistical Programmer you will become key player in making our vision come true.


Statistical programming in clinical development projects and line of business

You can look forward to share knowledge and collaborate with other statistical programmers, biostatisticians, data mangers and medical writers within Biometrics as well as other highly skilled experts. Your primary tasks will be to:

  • Provide programming input to submission plans, authority interactions and individual clinical trials.
  • Have hands-on with integration of data, creation of summaries, project standards development and alignment across studies.
  • Report clinical trial data by creating ADaM deliverables and tables, figures and listings.
  • Keep up with the latest industry news on authority data requirements, CDISC standards and SAS programming to secure our continued use of high quality data standards.
  • Develop and maintain SAS programs to support clinical projects and other functions in LEO Pharma.
  • Communicate with CROs and other pharmaceutical companies on data and programming related activities.
  • Collaborate with other functions and experts within LEO R&D and LEO innovation lab.

Additionally, you will get the opportunity to be involved in shaping the increasing activities on utilizing clinical data across LEO as part of LEOs 2025 strategy of being a highly data driven organization.


Statistical Programmer with +5 years’ experience within medical research

You have a graduate qualification in life sciences/natural sciences/computer sciences or similar. This is backed by +5 years of experience in SAS programming within medical research and a professional interest in authority requirements for submissions such as CDISC standards.

Your success will to a large extent be based on your ability to collaborate with people across multiple areas and mentor less experienced programmers. This takes an open-minded and positive approach as well as respect and curiosity. Additionally, you must be able to explain and share your work, conclusions and recommendations in a way that is understandable to people without your programming expertise, in written and spoken English.


The statistical programming team

You will join a team of 10 statistical programmers and a manager. We work in close collaboration with 16 biostatisticians, 10 data managers and 10 medical writers. The department is at the LEO Pharma headquarters in Ballerup, Greater Copenhagen. You can look forward to joining a well-functioning team with a strong focus on creating a good and informal atmosphere characterised by helpfulness and a common drive for breaking new land.
