Newly established positions within growing key therapy area

On behalf of our client, AstraZeneca, Hays is offering two newly created positions as Medical Advisor. This is an exciting opportunity to join the growing Nordic Medical Affairs Oncology team, and through scientific expertise characterize the oncology therapy area publicly. The function has developed rapidly during last years, and serves of vital importance for the organization. In the role, you will be provided with a high level of empowerment and achieve a close cooperation with key external experts. It is an extrovert role, where you will spend approximately 30% of your time externally focused – with this in mind, the role can be characterized as a hybrid between a Medical Advisor and a Medical Science Liaison.

The focal point of the position is to provide medical and clinical oncology knowledge to management throughout the product lifecycle and deliver proactive and reactive communication to customers on a Nordic and local level. In the role, you will be the driving force behind providing medical input to the strategy and planning process – you will drive customer interactions by collecting and sharing medical and scientific knowledge across the oncology portfolio. In order to deliver on strategy, you will enjoy a close internal cooperation with your Medical Advisor colleagues, but also collaborate closely on a cross-functional level.

In order to succeed in the role, it is all-important that you thrive with the profound science and evidence based therapy understanding, combined with the outreaching and communicative work. You must be motivated by being a key speaker for AstraZeneca within one of the company’s core areas.

Oncology/immunology experience with strong mind-set

In order to be taken into consideration for the role, holding academic and research weight are crucial. A Master’s degree within medicine, pharmacy, dentistry or natural sciences will constitute a favourable basis in our selection for the role - holding a Ph.D. is preferable. Experience within oncology or immunology will serve advantageous given the scope of the role. In continuation hereof, holding relevant experience from the pharmaceutical industry, in a Medical Advisor role or similar, will prove beneficial. It is expected that the candidate possesses significant knowledge of the pharmaceutical industry along with the health care system and payer structure of the Danish market. Fluency in Danish and English is a must.

In order to succeed in the role, the mind-set of the candidate is all-important. You thrive with driving and initiating projects and possess a structured and organized approach to your work.
