Managing Editor, Medical Writing Team

The Medical Writing team at CACTUS offers medical writing services to multinational pharmaceutical companies, clinical research organizations, and researchers worldwide. We work with clinicians and researchers to help them communicate their science to the world. We are currently looking to add to our team of medical writers, experienced researchers, preferably post docs looking to work in a non-lab setting, be part of a world-class delivery team, and work in an exciting, fast-paced global environment.

Medical Editors use their understanding of the subject matter, the medical industry, and publication norms to convert complex scientific content into error-free, publication-ready documents that are both scientifically and linguistically accurate.

  • Managing resourcing and training requirements 
  • Manage a team of editors (in-house and freelance) and supervise projects assigned to them
  • Plan and delegate tasks in keeping with writer/client requirements and delivery deadlines
  • Review and provide editorial input on documents of high strategic value
  • Contribute to proposal/pitch activity when required
  • Provide quality-related coaching or mentoring to team members, as appropriate
  • Develop and maintain necessary templates, formats, and style guides to ensure that documents generated meet client requirements

You fit the bill if you have

  • MBBS/MD or Master’s/PhD in the Life Sciences with knowledge of clinical research
  • Impeccable written and verbal communication skills
  • Strong client satisfaction and quality focus
  • Ability to multitask in a deadline-driven environment
  • Strong time and project management skills
