Job Description

Prescient has an opening for a Consultant in biosimilars and biologics to be based in our New York or San Francisco office.

The Consultant will play an integral role in executing consultancy engagements commissioned by Prescient’s clients. This will be achieved through the effective and efficient management of all aspects of projects. 

The position offers a rare opportunity to be mentored by seasoned industry professionals within Prescient, and to be exposed to senior-level decision makers within the pharmaceutical industry. Prescient operates a merit-based culture that offers the opportunity to develop and progress quickly.

Candidate

The candidate should have thorough knowledge of biosimilars and biologics and be able to demonstrate in-depth expertise of the development, regulatory affairs and commercial aspects of biosimilar products globally, especially in the EU and US. The candidate should have experience managing teams and projects.

The ideal candidate will be a high-energy, results-oriented individual with a creative and analytical mind who has the ability to manage and coordinate complex consultancy engagements through strong client and people management, subject-matter expertise, communication skills (both written and oral) and the ability to draw conclusions and recommendations from a variety of sources of evidence. He or she must also be able to operate effectively as part of a global team.

Responsibilities

The primary focus of the Consultant will be on:

  • Project Management: The three-dimensional management of client engagements including design, planning, client management, people management, evidence collection, analysis and reporting
  • Client Management: Collaboration with other members of the project and account teams to ensure clients experience best-in-class customer service and that projects are run in a proactive, communicative and efficient manner
  • Secondary Data Analytics: The sourcing, analysis and reporting of public-domain information, be it scientific, market, clinical, commercial or corporate in nature
  • Evidence Generation: The collection of market, competitor and stakeholder evidence through desk-based interviewing and elicitation
  • Conference Coverage: The coverage of key conferences with the objectives of speaking to a wide range of delegates on predetermined topics and the attendance of key symposia, presentations, posters and booths
  • Analysis and Reporting: Collaboration with other members of the project team to analyze findings, develop conclusions and recommendations and create client presentations that deliver a linear evidence-based story on the topics in focus

The Consultant will spend 80% of his or her time in the New York or San Francisco office, but will be required to undertake international travel for client meetings, conference attendance and inter-office visits.

Desired Skills and Experience

At least five years of relevant biosimilars and biologics experience gained from working within the healthcare sector (e.g., CRO, equity research), a pharmaceutical consultancy or the pharmaceutical industry is essential. Immunology and/or oncology knowledge beyond the biosimilars space will be an advantage and a working knowledge of clinical development and regulatory processes is required.

The preferred candidate will have a PhD, MS, MBA or a similar degree in a relevant life sciences area.

Prescient will not sponsor work visas.
