The Role

Data Sciences at Quotient comprises over 90 staff and provides an expert service in the data management, pharmacokinetics, programming, statistical analysis and reporting of early Phase clinical studies.

Due to our continued growth and success we have an excellent career opportunity for a talented Programmer to join our Statistical Programming department and further your career. You will be involved in the challenging environment of early phase clinical studies and play a key role in the expansion and continuous development of our statistical programming services.

Main tasks and responsibilities include some or all of the following (depending on prior experience):

  • Generate SDTM/ADaM dataset specfications
  • Programming SDTM/ADaM datasets including validation
  • Programming listings, tables and figures
  • Writing Data Transfer Specifications
  • Programming files and datasets for issue to the Lead PK or Lead Statistician
  • Define-xml packages including Reviewers Guides and conformance reports
  • Peer review of some or all of the above
  • Review and programming input into key study documents e.g., Data Management Plans, Reporting and Analysis Plans, Gantts, etc.

Dependent on your development, our career pathway allows you to expand your role over time, and progress to more senior roles and tasks. Training will be provided to help your further your programming skills and achieve a Lead Statistical Programmer role within Data Sciences project teams. Experienced candidates may also become involved in staff training/mentoring, sponsor contact and where relevant, discussions relating to use of sponsor standards/procedures.

Early Phase studies present particular programming challenges due to their complexity (often with multiple study parts), PK data, interim deliverables, protocol changes and the urgent requirement from sponsors for their key results; you will be expected to be flexible and creative in your programming skills.

The Candidate

The successful candidate will have a degree and SAS programming experience, ideally in an early phase GCP environment. Experience of programming clinical data, SDTM/ADaM datasets, listings, tables, figures and/or working with PK domains would be an advantage. Prior experience of training other clinical SAS programmers, define-xml, Pinnacle21 software or experience as a Lead Statistical Programmer are required for more senior roles.

Other skills and experience required:

  • Good organisational and presentation skills
  • Ability to work to tight deadlines whilst maintaining quality standards
  • Attention to detail and the ability to multitask
  • Effective oral and written communication skills

The role is based in our Edinburgh office. However, experienced candidates could be based at our Nottingham offices or be partially or fully home based.

Applicants must have the right to work in the UK at the time of being offered employment.

Company benefits

In return, you will receive a competitive salary, a generous benefits package, excellent training and development, as well as an exciting career within a fast paced and dynamic business.
