Title: Senior Director, Global Market Access and Health Economics Development Pipeline

Date: Jan 4, 2024

Location: Princeton - Sun

Company: Sun Pharmaceutical Industries, Inc (USA)

(ONSITE-Princeton) HYBRID: 3 days in office; 2 days remote

SunÆs rapidly growing portfolio in dermatology, ophthalmology and oncology requires expansion of the market access team to globally support key Health technology assessment markets (UK, France, Germany, Canada, Brazil, Japan, South Korea, and Australia) and engage in prelaunch market shaping health economic activities. The Senior Director will support development products (ie. excluding Ilumya) to ensure the prerequisite evidence requirements for commercial success are achieved (ie. HEOR endpoints, patient populations, disease severity, study duration, and payer relevant outcomes). None of these evidence requirements can be generated within a year window prior to launch and should be reflected in the development program prior to phase III initiation. Given the complexity of the development portfolio and the aspiration to continued portfolio expansion, the individual needs to have Senior Director level technical and leadership levels of competency.
This position is ONSITE at our North American Headquarters, Princeton, New Jersey. HYBRID work week: 3 days in office; 2 days remote
