The Senior Director provides scientific oversight of studies and study processes conducted through use of Vector Oncology data resources and from data sets generated in the conduct of Vector Oncology or associated studies.  Work is performed under the general direction of the Chief Scientific Officer or designee.  A key focus of the work is analysis of health outcomes, cost, and health resource utilization data, and modeling of these endpoints.  The position differs from lower level scientific positions in the focus of the role on supervision of other scientists who perform the research.  The Senior Director may directly perform the scientific role on research studies, and if so, would be expected to work with a high degree of independence.  However the focus of the role is on supervision of the work of other scientists, in all that that entails.
