H. Lundbeck A/S

Requistion ID: 1135

Location: Copenhagen, N/A, DK

Date: 11-May-2020

Director for newly established Data Science department

Are you passionate about using statistics, epidemiology, and machine learning to extract insights from large or complex data? Do you thrive using your extensive methodological knowledge to help others succeed and grow? If you also wish to be a leader of a team with highly skilled specialists, then you could be the new Head of Data Science at Lundbeck, we are looking for.


Data Science is a newly established department within the Biometrics Division and currently employs 11 highly-skilled data scientists and statisticians, including a postdoc and PhD student.

Biometrics has the responsibility for handling and analyzing data across the drug development and market access value chains. The primary responsibility of the Data Science department is to ensure that Lundbeck has access to the right data sources and that insights to support our Research and Development projects are being extracted from internal and external data sources. This includes analyses of biomarker data, disease progression patterns, health economics data, value evidence for payers and outcome measures. The department is also responsible for statistical analysis for market access and observational research studies.

Biometrics also includes the departments Digital Technologies & Data Management, Biostatistics & Statistical Programming and a Digital Agile Lab. In total, we are more than 80 people located in Copenhagen or in Singapore.

The position is placed in our Headquarter in Copenhagen.

Your job and key responsibilities

You will have the managerial responsibility for all employees in the department. You will ensure that your employees thrive, develop, and deliver value to our research and drug-development projects. You will be overall responsible for the scientific validity of methodologies applied and the continuous development of new methods.

We work in a regulated area and with patient data, and you must appreciate the restrictions this impose as well as the impact of analyses on major decisions in drug-development projects and budgets.

Your main stakeholders will be managers across the organization, and experts in the drug-development projects. You will be part of the global Biometrics Management team and take part in developing Biometrics to meet future needs.

Few travel days can be expected.

  • Experience with management of highly-skilled scientific staff
  • Strong methodological understanding and hands-on experience with biostatistics or health economics
  • Previous work experience in clinical or biomedical research (e.g. in the pharmaceutical industry, or a public or academic setting)
