1 month agoNew York, NY

We're looking for a Director, Global Regulatory Affairs Strategist to help us accomplish our mission to improve lives by learning from the experience of every cancer patient. Here's what you need to know about the role, our team and why Flatiron Health is the right next step in your career.

Reporting to the VP of Regulatory Affairs, this role is a unique opportunity to influence the development of Flatiron’s Regulatory Affairs function and lead regulatory strategy for real-world evidence by working with sponsors and Health Authorities globally (e.g. FDA, EMA, national EU Health Authorities, PMDA).   

In this role, you will lead global regulatory affairs strategy for Flatiron Health in collaboration with sponsors through drug development project work and in collaboration with Health Authorities through research initiative work. A deep understanding of clinical oncology drug development strategy and operations is important for this role.

Because Flatiron's work is in a rapidly evolving space at the forefront of regulatory innovation, it is important that you have had experience in direct interactions with the FDA and other health authorities in a strategic oncology regulatory capacity. This includes all aspects of the drug development process, from pre-IND or equivalent, development phase, marketing authorization, product labeling and promotion, post approval, advanced diagnostics and pertinent other (e.g. Breakthrough or orphan drug) applications or submissions, excluding chemistry, manufacturing and controls expertise. 

What You'll Do 

You will guide the regulatory strategy for Flatiron’s research oncology initiatives and sponsor work. In addition, you will:  

  • Develop, implement, and manage the global regulatory strategy consistent with Flatiron’s overall company objectives, strategy, both as a business and in partnership with sponsors’ specific drug product/asset needs 
  • Support business development due diligence activities as required 
  • Ensure Flatiron’s adherence to all local and national regulatory reporting obligations and requirements in all relevant jurisdictions (including pharmacovigilance obligations), and support the processes and audit functions or interfaces to properly implement these responsibilities in partnership with Flatiron’s Quality organization 
  • You will work directly with the FDA and consortia on clinical research projects 

While it is not anticipated that Flatiron Health will take primary responsibility for health authority submissions, critical components of regulatory submissions are expected deliverables from sponsors who work with us, and as such regulatory project management and writing expertise amongst the regulatory affairs team is required.  

Who You Are 

You're a regulatory science expert and leader with at least 7 years of experience in regulatory oncology drug development within the biopharmaceutical industry. You're excited by the prospect of rolling up your sleeves to tackle meaningful problems each and every day, with a forward-looking mentality as it relates to the development of an innovative regulatory strategy. You’re a kind, passionate and collaborative problem solver who seeks and gives candid feedback, and values the chance to make an important impact.  

  • You have an advanced degree (e.g. PharmD, PhD, MD, DVM, MBA), however an extensively broad and deep set of experiences within the discipline of regulatory sciences within biopharma may be sufficient with a BA or BS or equivalent 
  • You have cross-functional team experience and product team leadership experience is a plus 
  • You have solid knowledge of IND/CTA through BLA/NDA/MAA or equivalent submission requirements, preferably with both the US FDA and EMA; the US FDA is  a minimum 
  • Fluent knowledge of all stages of pharmaceutical drug development and compliance and documentation  
  • You are knowledgeable in ICH, FDA and EMA statutes, guidelines, guidances, initiatives, and other regulations governing regulatory compliance and reporting, including safety reporting and processing within the clinical investigation and post marketing settings
  • You have strong organizational, matrixed leadership, teamwork, and interpersonal skills, as well as a passion for developing teams
  • You have experience managing and developing a team  
  • You have outstanding communication skills (written and verbal, both formal and informal) 
  • You have the ability to manage multiple projects simultaneously in a fast paced environment 
  • You are effective at driving collaboration, achieving results, influencing, and resolving conflicts across internal and external project teams 

If this sounds like you, you'll fit right in at Flatiron.  

Extra Credit: 

You have had direct strategic regulatory oversight of at least one program through pivotal development, marketing authorization application preparation, regulatory review, label negotiations and approval.
