You would also have the opportunity to engage with the broader international research community to establish and promote the appropriate use of observational data by conducting methodological research, developing standardized analytics tools and demonstrating successful applications to important clinical questions.

Your position will be focused on supporting the ‘real world exploration of benefits’ (RWEB) initiative, an ambitious collaborative effort to develop a systematic process for observational database analyses to enable exploration and identification of differentiated benefits of medical products to support R&D’s clinical development strategy. We are designing and implementing an R&D RWEB “engine” to efficiently generate population-level effect estimation study results across a network of observational databases so that Janssen R&D scientists can proactively use real-world evidence to inform their clinical development program decisions.

Enabling the RWEB initiative will require collaborative support across the 4 functional units within Janssen Epidemiology Analytics:

1) Data Integrity, Standardization, and Characterization Operations: responsible for the development and evolution of scientific and industry standards for observational data harmonization, ensuring their appropriate application across the J&J real-world data ecosystem, and leading the evaluation and characterization of observational data for their fitness-for-use to address clinical questions from across the organization

2) Methodology Empirical Research and Evaluation: responsible to innovating, evaluating and establishing scientific best practices around the design and conduct of observational analysis and accompanying processes to ensure the reliability of real-world evidence

3) Open-Source Analytics Development: responsible for leading the design and development of software and analytical tools that encode scientific best practices into solutions that enable real-world evidence generation and dissemination

4) Clinical Intelligence Applications: responsible for ensuring the successful delivery of observational analyses for clinical characterization, population-level effect estimation, and patient-level prediction to meet the needs of J&J’s scientific and business functions.
