Where Science meets Strategy

A high growth biopharmaceutical company that discovers and develops large-molecule drugs for cancer and infectious diseases is expanding their marketing team. This dynamic organization has enjoyed double-digit revenue growth four of the past five years, and now has six new products in late stage clinical development. They are adding people to the marketing team who have the interest and ability to advance at least two levels within the organization during the course of their career, and average timeline for promotion is 18-24 months. If you’re looking for a strategic challenge in a dynamic, scientifically driven organization this could be the opportunity for you.


The Associate Director of Market Research & Insights will develop and implement all primary and secondary research activities for a line of products used in the infectious disease and oncology markets. You will work with in-line brands as well as products in clinical development, and projects will be qualitative and quantitative in nature. You will be expected to engage early in designing and implementing market research activities, and work closely with the brand teams to understand business objectives. You will select and manage vendors, analyze prescription audit data and other reports, and present and defend recommendations. Competitive Intelligence is also a significant part of the assignment, and you will support colleagues in Forecasting to develop models and projections.

The Associate Director work on cross-functional teams and collaborate with colleagues in brand marketing, pipeline planning, finance, clinical development, and medical affairs.
This is a broadly defined assignment on a relatively small team, and one that is particularly focused on the use of current scientific findings to grow the business. We need someone who is strong technically as well as strategically, and who is willing to “roll up their sleeves” and execute programs. This is a high visibility role with significant opportunity for career development and advancement. Overnight travel is estimated at 20%.


The successful candidate will have the following background:

• 7+ years of Market Research experience in the biotech or pharmaceutical industry
• Expertise in quantitative and qualitative tools and techniques
• Experience working with the major prescription audits, including IMS and Wolters Kluwer
• Bachelor’s degree or better; advanced degree strongly preferred
An industry-leading compensation package for this position includes a competitive base salary, an annual bonus based on company and individual performance, and restricted stock units. An award-winning benefits package is also provided.

This position will be based in the San Francisco Bay area; comprehensive financial assistance for relocation is provided.

This is an opportunity to leverage your technical experience and relationships for something more than a simple paycheck.
