We're looking for oncology Medical Directors who are passionate about research and evidence development, interested in exploring and developing innovative new techniques, and looking to drive collaborative research in a fast-paced, mission-driven environment. 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 Medical Director, Medical and Scientific Affairs (MedSci), you will oversee Flatiron’s external research collaborations in academia, government, non-profits, and industry. You will also partner with our teams to support early business opportunities in the US and internationally. You will work closely with Flatiron’s multifunctional teams to provide clinical and research leadership, ensuring quality and translating real-world data into insights that benefit cancer patients. This includes guiding decisions about how EHR-derived data sets are developed and used, and driving research from concept to data interpretation to publication. MedSci provides oversight for research infrastructure, and is an incubator for new research and quality improvement applications and business opportunities. You will help us push the envelope at the interface of technology and medicine. In addition, you'll also:

  • Serve as a primary clinical voice of the company both internally and externally
  • Lead data-driven research projects involving colleagues within Flatiron, and in collaboration with external partners in academia, government, non-profits, and life science companies
  • Provide clinical and scientific input as a member of cross-functional teams, on research projects that leverage real-world data to accelerate progress against cancer
  • Provide strategic, scientific, and operational support for Flatiron research  and external collaborations 
  • Establish key external relationships throughout the oncology research and development ecosystem, including researchers and patient advocacy organizations
  • Provide medical and scientific support for Flatiron’s new business initiatives
  • Oversee research infrastructure to support research and dissemination and provide scientific and clinical thought leadership for academic and other non-commercial research collaborations
  • Represent Flatiron at conferences, both in a speaking and a networking capacity
  • Serve as a source of thought leadership for the direction of the company and its products
  • Provide team guidance through the development of novel processes and products, including patient-focused quality improvement applications
  • Work cross-functionally to ensure the highest clinical quality and relevance of our products and data
  • Supply disease- and/or expertise-specific training to coworkers and clients

Who You Are

You're a medical oncologist with 2 or more years of experience after completion of subspecialty training (although we are open to considering other levels of experience). 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 make an important impact. 

  • You have a medical degree, residency, and oncology subspecialty training 
  • You have demonstrated expertise in one or more oncology-relevant methodological areas (e.g., outcomes research, real world evidence, patient-reported outcomes, health services research, quality improvement science, clinical trials, etc.)
  • You are excited about working in a passionate, fast-paced, technology-driven culture
  • You can easily explain scientific terms to a non-medical, highly sophisticated audience; superior communication skills
  • You have comfort with ambiguity and a willingness to teach and learn

 If this sounds like you, you'll fit right in at Flatiron. 

Extra Credit 

  • You have experience working with industry in drug development, either in the industry setting or as an academic collaborator
  • You have a health outcomes research background
  • You have formal training in research methodology/data analytic methods
  • You are a credible expert with oncology thought-leaders OR you have experience collaborating with oncology thought-leaders

Why You Should Join Our Team

You'll also find a culture of continuous learning, broad and inclusive employee support offerings, and a commitment to supporting our team members in all aspects of their lives—at home, at work and everywhere in between. We offer: 

  • Flatiron University training curriculum which includes presentation skills, meeting mastery, coding languages and more

  • Professional development benefit for attending conferences, industry events and external courses

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.

Abhishek

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

Software Engineer

What is your vision for the company?

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

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.
