Equity Research Associate (Biopharmaceuticals)
New York, NY
Wolfe Research is seeking a Biopharmaceuticals Equity Research Associate to join its team based in midtown New York. We are a well-regarded research boutique that was voted #7 among all brokerage firms, on a weighted basis, in 2020 by Institutional Investor. The firm’s clients include many of the world’s largest asset managers (mutual funds, pension funds, hedge funds). Our firm covers publicly traded companies in many different industries across the US and abroad – the main focus is quality research, but we also do investment banking.
NYC-based equity research job covering: Global Pharmaceuticals & Large Cap Biotechnology. This is an opportunity to work with a highly-regarded Senior Research Analyst who has 20y+ of experience. You will be joining a team of other Research Associates, all of which report to the Senior Analyst. You will be responsible for assisting in all aspects of the franchise including financial modeling, note writing, and clinical data evaluation. Strong written, modeling, Excel, and PowerPoint skills are therefore required. As Research Associates develop, responsibilities expand to include communicating directly with buyside institutional money management clients, with internal sales/traders, with company management and investor relations teams, and with key opinion leaders.
There is a clear expectation that the candidate has a good attitude, is self-driven, is intellectually curious and can figure things out very quickly. You must also be able to work well in a fast-paced, demanding environment, and candidates should be comfortable working long hours that periodically include late nights and occasional work on weekends.
Ideal candidates will have good working familiarity with the biopharmaceutical sector. If coming from the biopharmaceutical industry, candidates will ideally have been employed in a business function such as sales & marketing, business development, portfolio assessment, R&D, medical affairs. Alternatively, candidates may come from consulting firms that have consulted to biopharmaceutical companies. Also, candidates may have gained the requisite knowledge from working in a similar financial role already, either on the "buyside" or "sell-side" in the healthcare/therapeutics space.
While many of our past hires have had advanced degrees (MD, PhD, PharmD, MBA) this is not a requirement. However, most qualified candidates will at least have an undergraduate degree in science/biology.
