Statistician I

As a mid-size Contract Research Organisation (CRO), Veramed prides itself on two key areas: providing the highest quality statistics and programming consultancy for its clients, and giving its employees industry leading working environment, support and development for growth. We don’t believe in a universal model for  Statisticians, which is why you’ll find the unique responsibilities, daily interactions and opportunities for each Statistician type we’re hiring for, such as a Delivery Statistician or a Project Manager Statistician.

Due to the experience levels expected as a Statistician I, you will likely suit being a Delivery Statistician before expanding to other types or a mix of each as your career grows. Understanding each Statistician type will give you a good idea of how you might like to build your career and expertise.

At its core, the role of the Statistician I is to provide statistical support to the statistics and programming department across a range of projects, clients and therapeutic areas. More information can be found on our Statistician careers page.

Minimum requirements as a Statistician I:

  • MSc or PhD in Statistics/Biostatistics (or equivalent).
