Your experience in the set-up and management of third-party vendors, as well as global study start up, will be self-evident. Familiarity with phase 1-4 studies would be highly advantageous. Demonstrable knowledge of effective project planning, strong financial acumen, along with the flexibility to manage a virtual team will ensure success within this position.
