Reporting to the Associate Director – Clinical, you will work as part of our clinical team to provide in-house project management across a range of clinical studies.
You will work across the full range of clinical activities including complex ethics and regulatory submissions, drug supply, vendors and budgets across a range of regulatory settings and be working within a multidisciplinary team that includes colleagues specializing in drug supply, regulatory, medical, statistical and pharmacology aspects of clinical development.

• Coordinate and oversee contracted services and ensure all activities align with project milestones and timelines
• Participate in the analysis and reporting of clinical data.

Role #1: Candidates in African or European time-zones preferred

Our moxidectin for Onchocerciasis (River Blindness) project is at an important stage of development, with our establishment of a second Phase 3b study site in Ivory Coast expected to contribute to enrolment of up to 12,500 subjects. This is an exciting opportunity to work with our current project manager and a multi-disciplinary team across the full range of clinical activities and make a direct impact in your field. Working closely with our clinical teams in sub-Saharan Africa and our partner non-governmental organisation, you will coordinate a range of activities for the study focused on quality and consistency across the sites, with the ultimate aim to inform development of guidelines for moxidectin in community directed treatment programs. Proficiency in both English and French is essential for this role.

Role #2: Candidates in Asia-Pacific time-zone preferred

In this role you will manage Phase 2 clinical studies of the efficacy and safety of moxidectin in Scabies and of CC-11050 (AMG 634) for Leprosy. Each programme has unique characteristics and objectives and will present different challenges, including the opportunity to work on multi-country multi-site studies in both middle and low-income countries. These studies are forecasted to begin in Q1 2023 and your initial focus will be managing site feasibility, selection and an efficient, study start up process. These are pivotal, critical path studies which will inform the Phase 3 program for both compounds. Proficiency in English is essential, and a language or languages in addition to English would be an advantage for this role.

About you

For both roles, we are looking for candidates with a background in clinical development, outstanding project management and communication skills, attention to detail and a good understanding of regulatory requirements. A thorough understanding of GCP is essential. You will have a passion for health equity and an eagerness to jump in to assist other team members when required to deliver on company goals. The studies
will be conducted in Africa and other rural health communities, hence African experience would be ideal in a candidate for the Onchocerciasis role and highly valued for the Scabies/Leprosy role, in the first instance.
Occasional domestic and international travel may be required to conduct site visits and for meetings with collaborators and funders. Relevant tertiary qualifications in science or a health discipline are essential.

Why work for us?

This is a great opportunity to join a friendly, inclusive team committed to making a difference. We put people first, with a strong focus on employee well-being and professional growth and development.
