Global Medical Affairs Manager



ALK is looking for a Medical Doctor to join the Global Medical Affairs team as Global Medical Affairs Manager in the Company Headquarters.

ALK is the world leading pharmaceutical company within the field of allergy. ALK is devoted to improving the lives of people with allergies by developing products that target the underlying cause of allergy. At ALK, we are pioneering the development of a range of tablet-based immunotherapy products, and setting new standards for evidence-based treatment decision-making within the field of respiratory allergic disease.

The principle responsibilities of the position are to secure a sound medico-clinical basis for clinical positioning and medical communication; to drive medical education from a patient and professional perspective; and to give medical input to marketing and reimbursement strategies. Your key focus areas will be to (1) develop new tools and services for health care professionals and patients to encourage timely and successful allergy treatment, (2) establish our current and future adrenaline products for emergency self-administration as the preferred choice, and (3) support marketed allergy immunotherapy products. A key criterion to achieving these goals is through establishing and maintaining dialogue with health care professionals and scientific experts. In summary, the position offers a unique opportunity to add value to early- and late-stage products, and involves in-depth understanding of prescriber and patient behaviour.

The Global Medical Affairs Manager belongs to a team of medical and science experts who work closely with other highly professional and specialised people within marketing, clinical development, health economics, regulatory, pharmacovigilance, and the affiliates.

From a position in our Global Marketing office located in Hørsholm, Denmark, you will work closely with ALK affiliates and partners, Global Research & Development, and the Global Marketing Department.
