Real-World Evidence at Costello Medical

Our Real-World Evidence (RWE) team is growing quickly through demand from both new and existing clients, and we have an exciting opportunity for an Epidemiologist to join our friendly and collaborative team. The successful candidate will play a key role in shaping the future of Costello Medical’s RWE service offering.

Our RWE team contribute to the design, execution and subsequent reporting of prospective, retrospective or cross-sectional real-world studies. They develop protocols and statistical analysis plans (in collaboration with our Statisticians, clients and external experts), acquire and analyse data, and communicate the methodologies and results in both written and oral formats. Studies include data from patient registries, claims databases, prospective studies or any other source of real-world data, and involve a wide range of research questions on burden of disease, clinical effectiveness or economic topics, among others.

About the Role

You will work in project teams alongside colleagues from all specialities to ensure that RWE projects are completed to an exceptionally high standard, on time and in line with client expectations. This role will include a range of work with varying levels of technical requirements. You will receive one-to-one training in the technical aspects of the role, including project management and effective client communication. Delivering project work requires close collaboration with clients, and following a successful induction period you will increasingly participate in teleconferences and face-to-face meetings with external stakeholders.

The successful candidate will be someone who shows the potential to progress rapidly and who, with close mentoring, could take on project management and client responsibility in six to twelve months.

Our team typically work on several projects at one time and the results of each analysis can feed into publications, value materials, health economic models or health technology assessment submissions. You will therefore be exposed to a wide variety of our services and a broad range of therapeutic areas.
