How you fit in

Our purpose is to improve patients’ lives by informing healthcare decisions. We do this by supporting pharmaceutical clients in Patient-Centered Outcomes research. We hold ourselves to very high standards and we’re proud of our reputation for high quality research which puts patients at the center of drug development. As Research Specialist, you will join a dynamic team of researchers with a passion for excellence in research and client service. In this role, you will have the opportunity to learn about many different diseases, health conditions, and further develop your skills in a range of different research methodologies including qualitative, quantitative, and mixed methods research. You will be involved in studies focused on the selection, development, validation, and use of patient-reported outcomes and other clinical outcome assessments (COAs). You will be involved in all stages of the development and execution of studies such as conducting literature reviews, developing study protocols (qualitative and quantitative), developing statistical analysis plans, preparing study documentation for ethical review, interviewing clinical experts and patients, qualitative coding and analysis, reporting results, and writing presentations, conference abstracts/posters, and journal manuscripts.
