Job description:

NYC-based equity research Associate position covering pharmaceuticals and biotech on the top ranked team.  Unlike other equity research roles (which are very specific to one sub-sector), this role spans a very broad set of responsibility – ranging from specialty pharma to generics to biotech.  This in turn means lots of room to learn a very diverse skillset as well as lots of exposure to top investors.  Past members on the team have moved on to extremely coveted roles.

What to expect:

We are a small team and work very closely together.  There is a high amount of exposure with investors and executive teams of spec pharma, biotech, pharma companies.  As a result, there is a clear expectation that the candidate has a good attitude, is self-driven, very intellectually curious and can figure things out very quickly. 

Requirements:

-       Strong science background (don’t necessarily need a PhD – BS/MS in chemistry/bio is good) … also open to MD or PhDs if someone is exceptional

-       Super excited to learn

-       Comfortable working investment banking hours (including late nights and weekends)

-       Basic understanding of financial modeling (<although we’re flexible on this)

Skill set you will develop:

-       Ramping up on a new therapeutic area instantly

-       Dissecting clinical data & stats

-       Patent law

-       Public speaking & professional relationships

-       Financial modeling

Compensation:  

very competitive
