Equity Research Associate (Biopharmaceuticals)
NEW YORK, NY
Wolfe Research is seeking an associate to join an II ranked Global Pharmaceuticals team, based in New York. As an Equity Research Associate, you will help build financial models, write research reports, and interface with key opinion leaders, institutional investors, company management teams, and internal sales and trading personnel. You will have a high level of responsibility and play an important role as part of the decision-making process for the franchise.
Qualifications/Responsibilities (all below are required):
Candidates MUST have a good, working familiarity with the biopharmaceutical sector (biotech, pharma). If coming from the biopharmaceutical industry, candidates should have at least two years of employment in a business function relevant to the position we have open (examples could include working in marketing, business development, portfolio assessment, R&D, medical affairs). Alternatively, candidates may come from consulting firms that have consulted to biopharmaceutical companies. Lastly, 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 their MBAs, this is not a prerequisite - we are less concerned with a candidate's financial knowledge, and are more concerned that they have a broad-based, solid understanding of the complexities of the biopharmaceutical industry. Many of our previous hires have also held advanced degrees (PhDs, MDs) in a scientific area relevant to the job, but this is not a requirement.
A solid understanding of Excel, Power Point, and Word are essential, as are good written and verbal skills.
