Associate Medical Writer

Covance is seeking an Associate Medical Writer. 

COVANCE is a leading global drug development services company and we provide support to the Pharmaceutical and Biotechnology industries.

We are recruiting for our Medical Writing team in Madison, WI and are currently seeking to hire an Associate Medical Writer to help support the team. This is a full time position, based in our Madison, WI location. Remote work is not an option and must work onsite in our Madison, WI office.

Covance’s early clinical business is unique in the industry because it includes an extremely diverse and challenging set of studies–typical phase I healthy volunteer studies through Phase II proof of concept, and even some Phase III patient studies. Covance medical writing team is exposed to a variety of study designs, endpoints, molecules, and clients. Additionally, we offer the opportunity to develop clinical pharmacology skills that most other medical writing employers do not offer. We are a part of the scientific team reviewing analysis plans and tables. The challenges of our study opportunities combined with the diverse role make the position a unique opportunity for someone to develop a broad knowledge base and skill set. We are seeking applicants who want to develop long term scientific and writing careers within our team at Covance.
