Manager/Director Project Leadership, Real World Evidence

| New York

Flatiron Health's Research organization was started in 2014 with the goal of serving cancer patients by accelerating research. We believe that existing clinical research paradigms are ill-equipped to answer the research questions that face drug developers, academic researchers, and regulators in the oncology space today. By focusing on technology solutions that can be deployed widely across the Flatiron network of providers, Flatiron has the opportunity to generate insights that were previously impossible.

Flatiron Research is focused on innovating in the Real-World Evidence (RWE) space. Our technology-first approach has allowed us to build RWE data sets with higher quality, accuracy, recency, and scale than any other data set that is available. We have active partnerships with top-tier academic medical centers, 12 of the top 13 oncology biopharma companies, and the FDA, all focused on using RWE to answer critical questions quickly and safely.

Our Research Operations team is looking for a Project Leader who will lead client-facing as well as internal projects using Flatiron’s proprietary RWE data and analytics platform. In this role, you will be responsible for scoping, executing and delivering these projects end-to-end. You will engage with clients throughout the projects and ensure successful project delivery and client satisfaction. You will also liaise between our Life Sciences Partnerships, Research Oncology, Clinical Data Abstraction, Product, Engineering, and Quantitative Sciences teams to drive projects while scaling Flatiron’s long-term research offerings. Successful candidates will be skilled in project management, analytical/quantitative thinking, structured communication (both oral and written) and excited about learning and becoming an expert for Flatiron’s data and analytics.

Responsibilities:

  • Partner with Flatiron Life Science Partnerships team and clients to scope new projects
  • Develop and own project plans and timelines end-to-end, and coordinate cross-functional teams to ensure on-time delivery of high quality data and analytics output
  • Manage a portfolio of 3-5 projects in parallel and prioritize tasks across projects and teams based on comprehensive judgement of trade-offs
  • Lead problem-solving discussions with internal stakeholders (e.g., Life Sciences Partnerships, Research Oncology, Clinical Data Abstraction, Product, Engineering, and Quantitative Sciences) to ensure that all necessary inputs are considered and the team collectively makes clinically and scientifically sound decisions
  • Lead or support meetings and engagements with external stakeholders (e.g., Life Sciences companies and Academic Research Centers)
  • Track and communicate progress and decisions clearly and regularly to internal and external stakeholders
  • Triage issues to the appropriate internal stakeholder and ensure timely effective issue resolution
  • Create clear and consistent documentation of processes and decisions
  • Create and standardize processes so that each project is easier, faster and/or of higher quality than the last one

Requirements:

  • Degree from a top university. Advanced MBA, MHA, MPH, MS, PhD is a plus.
  • Superb project management and communication skills
  • Experience working on cross-functional teams
  • Experience with or deep understanding of scientific methodologies or statistics
  • Work experience in one of the following types of highly structured or scientific environments: academic hospital, management/healthcare consulting, research foundation, or CRO/ARO
  • Passion to fight cancer

Bonus Points:

  • Experience with clinical research, especially in the community oncology or clinical trials network setting
  • Experience in epidemiological or outcomes research (real-world evidence)
  • Experience in client-facing roles
  • Familiarity with data generated from EMR

Insider's spotlight

What’s the vibe like in the office?

The most exciting part of being in my company is solving a real problem at scale through serious collaboration. Oncologists, software engineers, statisticians, business folks, etc. all have to come to the table together, as equals, to figure this one out. And we are doing it.

Amy

Chief medical Officer

What kinds of technical challenges do you and your team face?

An engineer and oncologist work together over several weeks to build an algorithm from a naive prototype to a highly specialized and flexible rule set that can accurately represent the lines of therapy for 95% of patients within a specific disease subset.

Software Engineer

How does the company support your career growth?

As engineering manager, I am invested in the professional development of the people I work with. I train team members by pulling them out of their comfort zones to the uncomfortable territory. At Flatiron, it is one of our values - greatness and comfort rarely co-exist.

Kevin

At Flatiron, we believe that learning from the experience of every cancer patient is an imperative — it is the key to accelerating research and continuing to improve the quality of care. Our mission is to serve cancer patients and our customers by dramatically improving treatment and accelerating research.

Zach Weinberg

Co-Founder, President and COO

Instead of studying the cells, I now have the opportunity to write about the patients. I can tell their stories through the research lens and enable them to advance clinical cancer research through their experiences. I certainly never lose sight of the human behind the cell anymore.
