The European Medicines Agency (EMA) promotes and protects public and animal health in all EU Member States, as well as the countries of the European Economic Area, by ensuring that all medicines available on the EU market are safe, effective and of high quality. We serve a population of approximately 450 million citizens living in the EU and operate at the heart of the European medicines regulatory network – a unique collaborative model between over fifty national regulatory authorities for both human and veterinary medicines in the European Economic Area, EMA and the European Commission.

In this collaborative model, the scope of information services provided by the Agency continues to grow and Information management has become an integral part in achieving EMA’s mission. This development is driven by the increasing importance of interconnected information technology systems for managing and sharing information on medicines, the growing range of EMA’s external users with different information requirements, the overall digital transformation of society and regulation, and most recently, the COVID-19 pandemic. To strengthen the technology reply the Agency is looking to recruit new talents with a Computer Scientist background to create, design and implement software and hardware solutions for the advancement of scientific research and regulatory decision-making.

This is an exciting opportunity for a computer scientist, with excellent math, computer and technology knowledge and skills, to join EMA’s dynamic team in its public health mission. We are looking for an enthusiastic and creative individual to:

  • identify and solve complex scientific and regulatory problems by applying state of the art technology and computing solutions;
  • apply a wide range of standard technologies and application development platforms to design, develop and configure business solutions;
  • work closely with subject matter experts and business users to document business requirements and user stories;
