• Support (ACS/CS) or lead (CS) the matrix-management of robust global clinical trial teams, collaborating across the organization and externally with service providers/investigator sites.
• Support (ACS) or contribute (CS) to development of clinical study protocols and other required documents.
• Ensure quality conduct and document standards are applied across the clinical trial lifecycle.
• Support clinical data review.

Ultimately, YOU will help bring new technologies and therapies closer to our patients.
