Principal Statistician; Senior Statistician


Are you an experienced statistician looking for a company which can offer you real work-life balance? Are you interested in sharing your skills and expertise in a growing mid-sized CRO, where you can influence key decisions, truly make an impact and have the chance to improve departmental processes?

CROMSOURCE is continuing to expand our Biometrics team both at our headquarters in Verona and our UK office in Stirling, and we want the perfect Principal Statistician to help influence this growth. Both cities are wonderful places to live, and coupled with a fantastic working atmosphere in our office, this would be a great career choice.

We are looking for an experienced leader to support our growing team of statisticians and programmers. You will work on varied therapeutic areas, be given the opportunity to work on a group of studies for a single client (leading to increasing responsibility and implementing efficiencies), providing analysis and expertise and as a key study team member you will have direct contact with our clients.

For the Principal, there will also be opportunities to support the Management Team in organising and executing the departmental process initiatives and there may also be the opportunity to act as the Project Lead Statistician on groups of customer studies. Additionally, you may have the opportunity to train and develop less experienced Statisticians and Programmers.

We are also looking for a Senior Statistician, so if you don’t quite meet the Principal requirements now, please also contact us.

We offer very competitive salaries, as well as the usual benefits and employee incentives you would expect from a CRO.
