Are you a medical doctor, preferably within the specialties of cardiology, haematology or hepatology/gastroenterology? Are you interested in drug safety, both during the development phase, and when the drugs are on the market?
Then you could be our new colleague in Safety Surveillance, as we prepare ourselves for the future with our new products, currently under development, and existing products already on the market.
About the department
Safety Surveillance is a department within Global Safety and is situated in Bagsværd, Denmark. Our team of dedicated and skilled professionals has global responsibility for surveillance of all safety information for Novo Nordisk’s products that are either currently under development or on the market.
You will be supporting the respective teams working with the ongoing safety surveillance of products within diabetes and cardiovascular disease, obesity/NASH, and bleeding disorders. This responsibility includes critical analysis and medical evaluation of safety data, either as single cases or aggregated safety data, establishment or maintenance of a product’s safety profile during development, and on the market. You may also be involved in authority interactions and meetings, preparing and communicating benefit risk assessments and you may be our safety representative in cross-functional teams.
Furthermore, you may contribute to development of clinical trial protocols and clinical trial reports, where you will provide medical/clinical input with emphasis on drug safety. Your job responsibilities may also include chairing or participating in a cross-functional drug safety committee and communication with external parties related to clinical safety monitoring such as Data Monitoring Committees.
You will get the opportunity both to work independently and in collaboration with a team of highly skilled, committed and enthusiastic colleagues. Assuming responsibility, communicating information, team work, and being proactive will be essential skills needed during your work day. You will have a close collaboration and interaction with other functional areas in Novo Nordisk especially the Non-clinical and Clinical Development teams and Regulatory Affairs team and it will give you an extensive insight to the drug development phases and the whole Novo Nordisk organisation.
You have a medical degree preferably complemented by a PhD within either cardiology, haematology or hepatology/gastroenterology. Ideally you also have some clinical experience within the specialities.
You may also have prior experience within Drug Safety, or experience from clinical drug development within the pharmaceutical industry, but this is not essential, if you have a keen interest in drug safety, and the other qualifications are right.
As a person you are responsible, well-organised, a strong communicator and have high ethical standards. You can work under pressure when needed. You are a strong collaborator and a dedicated team player who thrives in a multicultural environment of continuous development, and you are good at establishing contact and collaborating with stakeholders. You are fluent in English both written and spoken (company language) and an experienced user of MS Office.
For the right candidate, we will consider helping with relocation to Denmark.
