We're looking for oncology clinical experts to help us accomplish our mission to improve lives by learning from the experience of every cancer patient. Here's what you need to know about the role, our team, and why Flatiron Health is the right next step in your career. 

What You'll Do

As a member of the Research Oncology team that supports our Clinical Research unit, you will provide clinical and research leadership to our multifunctional teams that are building transformational tools to streamline clinical trials operations, inform study design, help oncology teams identify patients for research studies, and make clinical trials more widely available wherever patients receive their care. The Research Oncology team works on a day-to-day basis to ensure quality, translate real-world data into insights that benefit cancer patients, and develop new clinical research products to re-envision the clinical trial landscape. You will be responsible for ensuring that we are building clinically accurate and scientifically compelling research solutions. This includes:

  • Providing clinical expertise for new products in development that provide value to our research stakeholders, including both oncology clinical research sites and life sciences partners 
  • Serving as the clinical and scientific lead on prospective technology-enabled clinical trials, working on:
    • Study design and protocol development
    • Creation of study data models
    • Analytic guidance and data interpretation
    • Manuscript planning and execution
  • Collaborating with key cross-functional internal and external stakeholders
  • Representing Flatiron at meetings with sponsors and clinical investigators, and participating in speaking engagements and national committees.

You’ll work closely with our Research Oncology, Clinical Data, Clinical Operations, Product, Quantitative Sciences, and Engineering teams.

Who You Are

You're an oncology clinician or clinical scientist (MD, PhD, NP, PA, PharmD) with experience in clinical research. You have worked at 1) a bio-pharmaceutical/pharmaceutical company or CRO in support of an Oncology therapeutic area, or 2) a clinical research site in the academic or community setting. You're excited by the prospect of rolling up your sleeves to tackle meaningful problems each and every day. You’re a kind, passionate and collaborative problem-solver who seeks and gives candid feedback, and values the chance to have an important impact. 

  • You have the appropriate experience required (varies at each level):
    • Clinical Director
      • You are a PhD, Nurse Practitioner, Physician Assistant, or PharmD (with additional Heme/Onc training)
      • You have 5-10 years of experience working in clinical research
    • Medical Director 
      • You have a Medical Degree (MD) and Oncology subspecialty training
      • You have 2-5 years experience working in clinical research
  • You are comfortable thinking about healthcare technology and the clinical trial end user, and enjoy thinking through research pain points with a product lens  
  • You have empathy for the challenges that oncologists and research staff face in the pursuit of clinical research
  • You have outstanding communication and presentation skills 
  • You are effective at driving collaboration, achieving results, influencing, and resolving conflicts across internal and external project teams
  • You have the ability to manage multiple projects simultaneously in a fast-paced environment
  • You can easily explain scientific and clinical concepts to a non-medical, highly sophisticated audience, and have a willingness to teach and learn
  • You are self-motivated, autonomous, and are able to prioritize

Extra Credit:

  • You have experience working as a clinical scientist or medical monitor
  • You have experience with real-world evidence

An Insider's view of Flatiron Health

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.


Software Engineer

What's the biggest problem your team is solving?

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.
