Associate Director, Pharmacovigilance Quality

Bluebird Bio, Remote

integrated product platforms with broad therapeutic potential

On January 11, 2021, we announced our intent to separate our severe genetic disease and oncology businesses into differentiated and independent publicly traded companies. We will retain focus on severe genetic disease (SGD) and will launch our oncology business (“Oncology Newco”) as a new entity, with the completed transition expected by the end of 2021.



At bluebird, only two things matter - patients and our people. When you join the nest, you're not just landing a new gig, you become a part of a flock that's soaring to new heights. We’re 1100+ doers, thinkers and collaborators across the globe with a strong sense of our values and our purpose. Our innovation and sustainability are rooted in the diversity of our teams and results are achieved through cooperation and the incorporation of multiple points of view. This is personal and we approach every challenge with radical care. The time is now to rise up and recode the science, the systems, and the status quo.


The Pharmacovigilance flock is all about ensuring patient safety and working collaboratively together and cross-functionally to bring safe and effective medicines to our patients. Come work with a close knit group of birds that love their jobs, and work extremely hard all the while having fun at the same time! 


As an Associate Director of PV Quality bird reporting to the Director of PV Quality, you'll help to bring more patients their bluebird days by:

  • Supporting R&D Quality Assurance (QA) by engaging and providing support of the R&D QA pharmacovigilance/clinical safety audit plan, compliance, audit and inspection activities, inspection readiness and other cross functional initiatives
  • Monitoring PV non-conformance trends and communicate this information to management with proposed remediation actions
  • Participating and/or leading activities related to the update and maintenance of the Pharmacovigilance System Master File (PSMF)
