Are you a senior biostatistician and want to make an impact and contribute to global health?

We are recruiting a Director Biostatistics to Scandinavian Biopharma, a research-based speciality biopharma company with experts in global vaccine development, manufacturing, registration, and marketing of pharmaceuticals. The company is developing the first vaccine for protection against diarrhea caused by Enterotoxigenic Escherichia coli (E. coli), or ETEC.

Infection with ETEC is the leading cause of travelers’ diarrhea and a major cause of diarrheal disease in low and middle-income countries, especially among children under the age of five. Positive results from on-going and finished studies are accelerating the development of the company´s tailor-made vaccine presentations for infants in low to middle income countries. The vaccine candidate potentially could save hundreds of thousands of lives per year and prevent immense physical suffering and malnutrition due to repeated bouts of illness as well as detrimental effect on poverty in these countries. The vaccine will also prevent long-term gastrointestinal syndromes due to diarrheal infections following travel, saving millions of holiday trips and reducing the disease burden of military and health workers in deployed ETEC-endemic countries.
