The US Food and Drug Administration's Office of Surveillance and Epidemiology-Division of Pharmacovigilance (DPV) is recruiting for an oncology pharmacist for the position of Safety Evaluator at our campus in Silver Spring, MD. At FDA/DPV, you can make a difference in protecting the health of the American people. FDA serves as the consumer watchdog of America’s healthcare system by making sure that safe and effective drugs are available to improve the health of consumers and that prescription and over-the-counter drugs, both brand and generic, work correctly and that the health benefits outweigh known risks. The successful candidate will join a multi-disciplinary team responsible for the surveillance of adverse drug events associated with hematology and oncology drug products. Safety Evaluators use post-marketing data sources to detect rare and serious adverse events that were not identified during the drug development program.
Successful applicants will be a graduate of an accredited school of pharmacy, have completed a PGY2 residency in hematology/oncology or have current patient care experience in oncology/hematology practice, possess a thorough knowledge of cancer pharmacotherapy, and a license in good-standing to practice in at least one US state.
Telecommuting is allowed.
