Medical Director – Clinical Development – Respiratory

Pharma-Partners is working with a fast-growing Global CRO to help increase the medical expertise of the business in certain key therapeutic specialties. This organisation has expanded organically and has an operational office presence in multiple countries across the globe. A large proportion of the clinical research projects they manage for biotech sponsors are in rare diseases, across different therapy areas, which means their medical leaders are truly involved in high-science and innovation.

A Medical Director in this business is involved “top to bottom” activities, and will find you operating in a flatter more agile structure compared to larger CRO environments where decision-making can sometimes be less rapid.

Acting as the therapeutic subject matter expert for global and regional clinical trials cross different phases, you will provide on-going medical expertise for:

  • Clinical trial design and site selection
  • Clinical Study Report creation (CSRs)
  • Trial feasibility assessments
  • Management of Medical Information
  • Regulatory document assessment and submission
  • Supporting Business Development teams, staying involved in proposal meetings and sponsor engagement
  • Management of drug safety activities and medical monitoring responsibility

Candidate requirements include:

  • Qualified physician (local country registration required)
  • Recognised specialist in Respiratory medicine (Board Certified or equivalent)
  • Experience in clinical research in pharmaceutical medicine, either in a CRO environment or pharma/biotech setting
  • Regional and/or global trial management experience
  • Medical monitoring experience and an understanding of global drug safety best practice
  • Ideally experience of providing medical support to business development activities, including bid defence
  • Someone who enjoys a busy and fast-paced role
  • Good experience managing multiple projects and challenges at one time
