LEO Pharma

Medical Expert to clinical development – late phase

Do you want to break new land and help taking LEO into a new era?

LEO Pharma has set an ambitious and exciting strategic direction towards 2025. Our goal is to become the world’s preferred dermatology care partner. A vital part of this journey has been to radically expand our treatment approach and product portfolio by incorporating biologics and other new drug candidates with far more complex development perspectives than before. As Medical Expert in our late phase clinical development you will get ample opportunities to personally influence all aspects of this journey, from handling of specific studies to our general development approach.

Provide medical and scientific input across all areas of clinical development

Your overall focus will be to provide medical and scientific input to the development, interpretation and documentation of clinical trial data to the projects for which you will hold the medical responsibility. As such, you will influence the direction for the development projects, how we set up trials, how we interpret results etc. The projects could e.g. be within the development of a new systemic treatment for psoriasis or atopic dermatitis. Your specific job functions include to:

  • Act as medical expert in clinical development teams – project teams, clinical teams and study teams
  • Drive the medical and scientific content of Clinical Development Plans
  • Contribute to clinical trial protocols, clinical trial reports, clinical regulatory documents, investigator’s brochures and publications
  • Contribute to applications for registration of new products
  • Represent LEO Pharma in interactions with external stakeholders including investigators, therapeutic experts and regulatory authorities

You will typically be involved in projects lasting for 2-3 years. The cross-functional project teams will consist of highly skilled experts across medical (you), trial management, pharmacovigilance, regulatory affairs, research, medical writing as well as external partners and consultants. Although you will have a global perspective your travel activities will be limited – up to 20 days per year.

Experience within clinical development

Ideally, you bring a degree as Medical Doctor with experience or Board Certification in Dermatology and your CV covers experience within clinical development and research methodology maybe within dermatological or inflammatory diseases. If you bring experience within biologics as well it will benefit your application but it is not a prerequisite.

To succeed, you will need all of your strong analytical skills in combination with your ability to create results in cross-functional teams where mutual respect and knowledge sharing are key words. You must be motivated by the opportunity to help taking the organisation to a whole new level and have the ideas, courage and stamina to come through.

Medical Department – your new department

You will join a group of 25 skilled and dedicated Medical Experts all sharing the same passion for developing new products that can make a significant improvement of the patients’ life. We strive for excellence and work with a high level of integrity in an environment characterised by an open-minded approach and dialogue. The department is part of Medical Sciences and Safety that also includes Preclinical Development, Translational Medicine and Pharmacovigilance. We are based at the LEO headquarters in Ballerup, Greater Copenhagen.

We look forward to receiving your application. Deadline January 7th, 2019.
