Make the most meaningful impact of your career in this rewarding role with Biogen, an established pioneer in biotechnology. This is your rare opportunity to transcend day-to-day management operations as you design operational strategy and oversee our clinical research organization (CRO) partners to develop clear protocol concepts and final protocols. The best part: You will own responsibility for entire clinical trial studies, including operational design, successful delivery, and the positive impact on the lives of patients with a wide array of neurological conditions, including multiple sclerosis (MS), Alzheimer’s disease, and spinal muscular atrophy (SMA). Working from home, office, or both on a flexible, hybrid schedule, you’ll have the support of a team with well-established procedures in place to make your vision a reality.
This is a hybrid (part-time on-campus) opportunity, with full-time remote work considered.
What You’ll Do
Develop and oversee implementation of the study-level operational strategy for the successful delivery of clinical studies.
Chair the Study Management Team (SMT) to drive development of scientifically robust, operationally feasible, and clear concepts/protocols.
Oversee delivery of studies by CROs to ensure quality execution in line with time and budget forecasts.
Partner with the CRO SMT lead to ensure the CRO creates appropriate risk-mitigation plans and effectively identifies/resolves issues.
Establish and drive efficient team operations by establishing an open culture defined by communication, goal setting, and oversight of strategy implementation.
Ensure effective, consistent, efficient and compliant processes.
Champion synergies among other studies, programs, and development units to enhance excellence in study planning and execution.
Who You Are
Scientifically and clinically astute, you’re a mission-driven individual with the strategic vision to see the big picture and assume responsibilities much broader and more meaningful than day-to-day operations. Decisive, analytical and self-confident, you are determined to own all of your career and the difference you can make on the lives of others through your leadership and ability to inspire excellence.
