Senior Analyst (Data Analytics)

Are you interested in working on some of the most pressing questions facing the healthcare system? Medicus Economics works with clients in the biopharmaceutical industry to solve problems with getting therapies to patients who need them. Our work can be found in scientific conferences, peer-reviewed publications, and submissions to health technology regulatory agencies around the globe.
