About BresMed:
BresMed is one of the largest privately owned health economic and outcomes research (HEOR) consultancies in the world. The office dynamic is intellectually stimulating, fun and focused on results.

Our services support a wide range of clients including top pharmaceutical companies, medical device manufacturers and small biopharma at the global, European and affiliate level. We have a portfolio that covers the full product development pipeline from early planning to implementation and launch. We work closely with clients to develop economic models and analyses for HTA submission and reimbursement (to NICE, the SMC, the AWMSG, the NCPE as well as other European and international authorities). We have strong links with academia, and our team members are encouraged and supported to develop innovative and cutting edge methodologies.
We identify ourselves as having a dynamic, fun and vibrant culture where everyone matters. Many of our employees join us as graduates, and we believe in developing our staff and exposing them to responsibility from an early stage in their careers, enabling rapid progression whilst maintaining a close support network.

The type of projects you will work on will vary, but will generally be qualitative research projects that require stakeholder engagements or desk-based non-systematic reviews.
  • Support comprehensive, but non-systematic, reviews of reference databases and websites to quickly and efficiently identify key information.

Are you interested in working in a cutting-edge industry, where you can develop globally valued skills and apply your math and statistics knowledge to improving healthcare?
If so, BresMed is offering an exciting opportunity to join our talented team, as we expand our successful health economics business to the US and aim to recruit up to 5 health economists in our Las Vegas office!

About BresMed:
BresMed works with pharmaceutical and medical technology companies, helping them to demonstrate the clinical and economic value of their products to governments and healthcare providers. This is mainly done through the development of health economic models, which utilize cutting edge economic and statistical methodology.
Headquartered in Sheffield, UK, BresMed is one of the largest privately owned health economics consultancies in the world. The BresMed team consists largely of mathematicians, economists and clinical evidence researchers. The office dynamic is intellectually stimulating, sociable and focused on results. We employ over 100 people in the UK, Denmark, India, Ireland and the Netherlands, and we are now expanding to the US.

Your responsibilities:
The core focus of your work will be developing cost-effectiveness models and/or practical value tools to demonstrate what would happen to patients on a new health technology (drug, device, diagnostic technique, etc.). This is achieved by modelling their costs and clinical outcomes in relation to existing treatments. The job is varied because every model is different, and your role will depend on your skills and interests, but most projects will require you to:

  • Analyze the effectiveness and safety of the new technology using results published in journal articles and patient level data from clinical trials or disease registries
  • Use research skills to identify appropriate inputs to populate the model
  • Design, build and interpret the results of the model – this requires technical Excel® and VBA coding skills
  • Report and explain what you have done – verbally, in a written document, or as a presentation
  • Produce submission documents to go to reimbursement bodies (such as the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence in England) that assess the cost effectiveness and budget impact of new health technologies
  • Produce supporting documentation, such as technical reports and abstracts/posters, with a view to developing these skills to include writing manuscripts for peer-reviewed journals

Your skills:

  • You are expected to have a minimum of GPA 3.0, or equivalent, in a relevant major (such as mathematics, statistics, operational research, decision science, medical sciences, pharmacy, economics or computer sciences)
  • Excellent numerical ability and critical thinking
  • You are required to be computer literate and able to confidently use Microsoft Office® packages, especially Excel (VBA coding knowledge is valuable but not essential)
  • You will need to be able to explain complex calculations and ideas both verbally and in writing
  • You will need to enjoy working both independently and as part of a team

Compensation and benefits package:
BresMed believes in equality across our international companies and is therefore pleased to offer the following:

  • 33.5 days paid leave inclusive of public holidays
  • Pension (upon completion of your probationary period)
  • Healthcare plan
  • A health and wellbeing program
  • An intensive 3-month training program
  • Competitive salary

Application information:
To apply for this role, please send a resume and cover letter to jobs@bresmed.com (please include your GPA and confirm that you possess permanent U.S. work authorization). The closing date for this post is Sunday April 30, 2017.
