About the department
Cities Changing Diabetes (www.citieschangingdiabetes.com) is Novo Nordisk’s global platform to address urban diabetes, including the risk factors in urban areas that lead to the growing rate of people with diabetes and obesity in cities. After a successful launch in 19 cities around the world, we are working to drive the implementation of the scientific, communication and advocacy agendas related to urban diabetes. In 2020, the key priorities are to drive the programme forward in the more than 20 cities, executing the 3rd Cities Changing Diabetes Summit in March and to expand into new cities.
You will support project managers in the Cities Changing Diabetes team in day-to-day business processes and tasks. In this role you will work to develop evidence to address strategic questions, work with team members on ad-hoc analyses, and assist with planning/development of activities.
We are looking for an intern who is passionate about public health, evidence development, analysis and communication. You are currently studying on your master’s degree in pharmacy, public health, health services research, health economics/economics, anthropology or another relevant field. General knowledge of health services research-related disciplines and key methodologies (database analysis, systematic literature reviews, cost-analyses) is preferred.
You are a person with a strong personal drive and dedication. You have professional and personal impact that is reflected in your desire to take initiative. We expect candidates to be service minded, thrive in a busy environment and bring a can-do attitude. Fluency in both oral and written English; ability to manage a large volume of projects (with supervision); sound personal judgement; and excellent interpersonal skills are required. Finally, you must have strong work ethic and willingness to take responsibility for your own learning.
