Associate Director, Corporate Strategy and Advocacy


Myovant Sciences is a healthcare company focused on developing and commercializing innovative therapies for women’s health and prostate cancer with a mission to become the global leader in women’s health. Myovant launched in the spring of 2016 and completed just a few months later, in October 2016, the largest biotech IPO of the year. Since then the company has been on a rapid growth trajectory and is on track to become an exciting new success story. Myovant recently announced data from LIBERTY 1, a Phase 3 trial in uterine fibroids, and expects data from four additional Phase 3 clinical trials for relugolix across three indications (uterine fibroids, endometriosis, and prostate cancer) in 2019/2020.  Each of these indications represent major commercial opportunities for which the company has retained full US and EU rights. In addition, Myovant has global rights to a second product candidate, MVT-602, which is being developed for the treatment of female infertility as part of assisted reproduction. We are currently seeking a qualified, highly motivated, experienced individual for the position of Associate Director, Corporate Strategy and Advocacy.
