R&D Operations

The professionals in Deloitte's Life Sciences Research & Development practice understand the unique challenges confronting today's Life Sciences organizations. Our approaches are pragmatic and realistic, and span the continuum from new R&D operating models through portfolio management, data analytics, IT transformation, and regulatory and safety considerations.

The pressures of ever-looming patent cliffs and demands for less expensive drugs and medical devices are making product innovation an imperative for Life Sciences companies. Due to client demand, we are seeking top, high-performing Senior Managers who will participate in our growth while delivering optimum service in this fast changing environment.

Work you'll do

Senior Managers lead project work streams or components of large, complex engagements that identify, design, and implement creative business and technology solutions for large Life Sciences companies. Senior Managers develop the detailed, quantitative analysis work associated with developing meaningful insights to address Life Sciences clients' biggest challenges.

Senior Managers participate in setting engagement objectives and scope; develop work plans for components of engagements, coordinate activities between work streams and identify changes in scope. Senior Managers also design deliverable content to precisely reflect the engagement contract and client needs and strive to improve deliverable quality through verification and validation of results. Senior Managers also participate in the development and presentation of proposals for business development activities.

The team

Deloitte Senior Managers typically work with a project team dedicated to a single client, taking direction from the Principal or Director. They work side by side with Principals/Partner/Directors and other Consultants at all levels, often with exposure to clients' C-level executives, organizational leaders and team members. Project teams work onsite with the client team, typically necessitating travel three to four nights a week.
