Associate Director, Clinical Data Analyst

Department: 130 Regulatory

Location: Waltham, MA

Company Overview:

Dyne Therapeutics is a clinical-stage muscle disease company focused on advancing innovative life-transforming therapeutics for people living with genetically driven diseases. With its proprietary FORCE™ platform, Dyne is developing modern oligonucleotide therapeutics that are designed to overcome limitations in delivery to muscle tissue. Dyne has a broad pipeline for serious muscle diseases, including clinical programs for myotonic dystrophy type 1 (DM1) and Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD), and a preclinical program for facioscapulohumeral muscular dystrophy (FSHD).

Role Summary:

The Associate Director, Clinical Data Analyst, has a critical role in the delivery of high-quality external data across Dyne’s development pipeline by proactively identifying, measuring, and mitigating risk prior to acquisition of non-electronic data capture (EDC) data. The Clinical Data Analyst partners cross functionally to identify risk to data integrity throughout the data flow to drive quality collection for non-EDC data sources (fluid & tissue labs, digital, imaging, wearables) in Dyne’s clinical studies. This role works with internal stakeholders and external vendors to define the data flow from collection at site or remotely through integration with the clinical database, for analysis and reporting.  The role coordinates cross-functionally to design and produce reports and visualizations, both through programming and data platforms, to mitigate the identified risks, merging with EDC collected data as needed. Analysis will be developed by wrangling data (files based, database, and large datasets), applying advanced analytics methodology (statistics, AI/ML models) and creating informative data visualizations, employing data storytelling, data, analytics, and narratives to develop compelling insights that drive measurable and actionable change.

This is a full-time position based in Waltham, MA without the possibility of being remote

Primary Responsibilities Include: 

  • Coordinate with data management study leads, clinical operations, internal stakeholders and external vendors to map non-EDC data from collection through analysis 
  • Partner with IT, internal functions and external vendors to develop secure data transfer pipelines for non-EDC data sources 
  • Participate in developing and applying clinical data standards to drive quality non-EDC data collections across programs 
  • Participate in cross-functional efforts to identify risks to data integrity and quality for external data sources  
  • Develop automated means of measuring and mitigating risk through quantitative analysis of operational and collected data  
  • Proactively problem solve, formulate problem statements and sets, derive them to manageable data collections and apply critical thinking to develop solutions 
  • Develop technical standards for the organization and storage (data wrangling) of both operational and collected data, structured and unstructured, for downstream analysis and reporting 
  • Apply advanced analytics (methods and tools) to identify trends and develop predictive models for events and behaviors  
  • Support and develop clinical data analyses (TLFs, visualizations) for the review of both non-EDC and EDC sourced data 
  • Participate in and effectively deliver periodic reviews of quantitative analyses to stakeholders, to drive process and collection optimization
  • Provide input to and assist with the development and implementation of cross-functional standards and processes for external data
