Job Description:


At Intercept, our mission is to build a healthier tomorrow for patients with progressive non-viral liver diseases.

Intercept's lead product, Obeticholic Acid (OCA), is a potent first-in-class farnesoid X receptor (FXR) agonist. OCA, marketed under the brand name "Ocaliva," is approved in the U.S., EU and Canada for use in primary biliary cholangitis (PBC), a rare autoimmune liver disease. OCA is also being investigated as a treatment for nonalcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH) and primary sclerosing cholangitis (PSC).

In February 2019, Intercept reported positive topline results from the Phase 3 REGENERATE study of OCA in patients with liver fibrosis due to NASH. REGENERATE is the first and largest Phase 3 study in NASH - a chronic disease that threatens the lives of millions of people in the U.S. alone. By 2020, NASH is expected to overtake hepatitis C as the leading cause of liver transplants in the U.S. Currently, there are no available treatments for NASH, and Intercept is among the leading companies focused on the disease.

Based on the positive results from REGENERATE, Intercept intends to file for regulatory approval in the U.S. and EU in the second half of this year. This is an exciting time for Intercept, as the organization prepares for a potential approval and launch in NASH. As part of this effort, Intercept is beginning to build a new commercial organization, and this opportunity in Talent Acquisition will play a pivotal role in preparing the company for the successful launch of OCA's second indication.POSITION SUMMARY:This essential team member will be responsible for supporting the pharmacometric programming efforts for specific projects and studies, including developing, testing, maintaining, validating, and documenting SAS programs.
