VIEW JOBS 7/28/2021 12:00:00 AM 2021-10-26T00:00 <p><strong>About Costello Medical</strong></p><p>Costello Medical is a rapidly growing global healthcare agency specializing in medical communication and health economic and outcomes research. We work with a wide range of clients, including the industry’s most successful pharmaceutical and medical technology companies, patient and public health bodies and charitable organizations. Our lasting client partnerships create a direct and measurable impact on the successful launch of novel therapies and devices across a wide range of disease areas. Our vision is to be a community of the very best people, constantly challenging ourselves to make meaningful and outstanding contributions to improving healthcare.</p><p>We are committed to our company values which are central to creating our fun, friendly and innovative workplace in which we strive to deliver the highest standards of quality. </p><p>We were founded in Cambridge, UK, in 2008 and have grown to a team of over 150 based across multiple offices in the UK and Singapore. In January 2020 we opened our first US office to better serve our existing US clients and to expand our US and global reach. </p><p><br></p><p><strong>About the Role</strong><br></p><p>The Medical Writer position is ideal for recent graduates in the sciences and those with experience in scientific research, who are seeking the opportunity to apply their scientific, writing and creative skills to real-world projects.

You will work closely with our Scientific Director and our US Medical Communications Lead, who are based in Boston, and other senior colleagues in the US and globally.</p><p>Medical communications projects place an emphasis on educating and informing clinical decision making and patient care, and provide opportunities to develop strong relationships with clients, academics and healthcare professionals. As a Medical Writer on the Medical Communications team, you will work on both Medical Affairs and Publications projects.</p><h3>Medical Affairs</h3><p>Medical Affairs provides the scientific bridge between clinical development and commercial functions in pharmaceutical and device companies. Most activities have a strong patient and/or healthcare professional (HCP) focus, and act to educate and inform clinical decision making and patient care, or to gather insights that inform a product’s clinical development.

It involves working closely with clients and world-renowned opinion leaders to produce materials that communicate key scientific and clinical data to a wide audience, including healthcare professionals, policy makers and patients.</p><p>While medical writers focus most of their time on medical affairs and publications, there are opportunities to work on additional project types if desired, including systematic literature reviews and meta-analyses, real-world evidence studies, and value dossiers.</p><p>You will work in project teams alongside experienced colleagues, who provide one-to-one training in the technical aspects of the role. Delivering project work requires close collaboration with clients and world-renowned experts, and you will increasingly participate in teleconferences and face-to-face meetings with external stakeholders. The work is structured on a project-by-project basis. You will usually be working on several projects in different disease areas at any one time and will have the opportunity to become extremely knowledgeable about these therapy areas. The requirement for on-site support at certain events provides opportunities for international travel.</p><p> Positions are available for those looking for an entry-level role in the field as well as those with some prior experience. We are looking for ambitious individuals with the potential to progress rapidly into more senior roles involving greater project management and client responsibility.<br></p><p><strong>Requirements</strong></p><p><strong>What Background Should You Have?</strong></p><p>We are looking for individuals who are collaborative, self-motivated and enthusiastic, with a passion for scientific writing and an interest in providing a great service to clients. </p><p><br></p><p>Essential requirements for the role are:</p><ul> <li>A bachelor’s degree in a scientific discipline (minimum GPA 3.3).
