Brief Description of Work:
At Pfizer, there are more than 200 statisticians working on all phases of drug development – from discovery, development, manufacturing to commercialization. Pfizer is recognized as an industry leader in the use of modeling and simulation to drive drug development. Statisticians are members of the ‘clinical triad’ where each of the statistical, clinical, and clinical pharmacology disciplines bring their respective skills to bear in a collaborative manner to deliver the very best trial designs and analyses.
The internship will consist of up to 480 hours of work at one of the Pfizer sites in New York, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Massachusetts, or Pennsylvania, commencing as early as April and ending as late as December. The intern’s project will be biomedically oriented, with one-on-one supervision by a senior staff statistician. The work will be a hands-on learning experience focusing on current project needs and will likely involve use of SAS, R, or other statistical software. As part of the internship program, the intern will prepare a written report and brief presentation summarizing the work and forming a permanent record of the intern’s efforts.
Applicants must have completed at least one year of graduate study by May 2021 and have work authorization in the US.
Pfizer is an Equal Opportunity employer and will consider all qualified applicants with a commitment to diversity.
