LEO Pharma

Manager to Biostatistics

Can you provide good biostatistical support and people management?


If you have solid biostatistical knowledge, people management skills and you are motivated by taking lead for a new team this job is your perfect match. In LEO Pharma we want to have a close dialogue and coaching between Managers and team members. As a result of our success and growth our Biostatistics team has expanded. Now we split the team in two, and that is why we need you to make this operation a success. You can look forward to head a team of skilled Biostatisticians in an environment characterised by helpfulness, collaboration and team spirit.


Your primary assignments  

Your overall goal is to ensure that your team delivers high quality statistical input to customers across the global organisation – within agreed timelines. To do so, you will have two main focus areas. One is to provide Biostatistical coaching and guidance. The other is to develop, motivate and inspire in order to generate team spirit and on-going development for the employees individually. You will:


  • Lead, motivate and develop – the team as a group and employees individually
  • Provide biostatistical coaching and guidance to drug development projects
  • Support development and implementation of new processes and models


You will also be part of the leadership team in Biometrics. Here you will contribute to setting the direction for the Biometrics function, and you will have a forum for constructive professional dialogue.


Your competencies

You have a university degree in mathematical statistics and at least 5 years’ experience from working hands-on within biostatistics, involving clinical trials and associated regulatory requirements. You have some experience within people management and/or project management and are motivated by developing your skills as a positive enabler for your team. Related to this, you have preferably experience from working in an organisation under transforming and growth.


To succeed, you must have a strong drive for results and be very good at collaboration. You also have a flexible mindset in order to ensure deliverables in a project organisation with multiple deadlines and priorities. Additionally, you have the communication skills needed to ensure that all your stakeholders know “what, when and who”. As Manager you are naturally open minded and you can make people believe in succeeding as a team.


Your new team

You will head approx. 10 Biostatisticians at LEO Pharma’s headquarters in Ballerup, Greater Copenhagen. The team members have different background, nationalities and level of experience. The working environment is based on trust, collaboration and we share a common drive for success – the success of one colleague is the success of us all.


We look forward to receiving your application.
