Job Description

Associate Director – Quantitative Sciences Consultant (Data Science / Statistics)

This position is ideally located at our manufacturing sites in Oss (The Netherlands) or Heist- op-den-Berg (Belgium).

The position

By joining the Center for Mathematical Sciences (CMS) as an Associate Director – Quantitative Sciences Consultant (Data Science / Statistics), you will be part of the Organon Manufacturing and Supply (OMS) organization and have the opportunity to make a real difference in ensuring a compliant, predictable and robust supply of medicines to patients. Besides, you take part in our team’s mission to transform the manufacturing division’s way of performing data driven decision making.

In this role, you will drive quantitative analyses for the most important and complex non-clinical projects in OMS across the globe (e.g. root-cause analyses, improving product and process robustness, shelf-life evaluations, tech transfers, regulatory filings or commercialization related projects) and function as a partner in decision making. You will take a leading role in these projects and will effectively translate business questions, collaborate with the CMS team, and provide coaching and mentoring to the team or individuals within OMS.

The Center for Mathematical Sciences (CMS) team

Our team is strongly positioned within Science & Technology – a subdivision of the OMS organization with representation of various Technical Operations groups and other support areas providing integrated end-to-end support. Being part of the CMS team, you will be exposed to the non-clinical side of the product lifecycle and will support the organization from late-stage development to commercial supply on both projects with a compliance focus or with an improvement emphasis. These projects can be related to drug substance, drug product, packaging or equipment related challenges. In this way you get exposure to diverse quantitative challenges and simultaneously build a strong internal and external network.

The believe is that our team should be more than a sole provider of quantitative analysis (mostly statistical) and is both effective in structuring problems and able to translate pharmaceutical challenges, that concern data in quantitative solutions. You will join an energetic team of five statistical / data science consultants who are based in Oss (NL) – at the largest manufacturing site of Organon. The team works on site for roughly 60% of the time and the rest from home. In case you live closer to the Heist-op-den-Berg site (Belgium), it is expected that you will visit the Oss site once every other week.
