Modis is looking for Medical Science Liaison with an excellent command in Dutch, French and English to sign a permanent contract directly offered by our client.

Function information

As a Medical Science Liaison (MSL), you are the scientific, clinical and therapeutic area expert responsible for supporting a Medical Affairs department by identifying and bringing relevant medical insights in the field, maintaining and expanding your strong scientific network & knowledge and develop & implement the scientific activities & the clinical plan.

As you are a medical key contact person for an assigned therapeutic unit, you have a rather field-based role that focuses on medical and scientific engagement with external experts (key thought leaders, HCPs,…). You support their needs by facilitating informational, educational, and research activities regarding the company’s current and pipeline therapies, in a strictly scientific, non-promotional manner.

You represent the scientific credibility of the company towards thought leaders and external experts of strategic importance. Delivering presentations on scientific topics to physicians and KTLs individually, in groups or at conferences is part of your job. Therefore it’s of great importance to keep yourself up-to-date on all relevant scientific information on your therapeutic domain, via literature searches, congresses, etc… .

Next to your external network, you have as well internal responsibilities. Close interaction with the medical and marketing team and cross-functional collaboration with other in-field and sales members is key in order to develop their scientific and technical expertise through training and scientific update presentations.

Finally, supporting internal medical review and the facilitation of processing unsolicited Externally Sponsored Study (ESS) requests fall within your responsibilities as the proactive support of the Clinical Operations Departments in evaluating potential clinical research sites and investigators for Company-Sponsored Studies.


A solid scientific background in medical or biological science with preferably a PhD, MD, PharmD degree is essential for this role.

If you can demonstrate a proven and successful track record as an MSL or medical department professional in a previous company this is a big plus. If not, it’s very important to show and convince us that you are driven, motivated and willing to go the extra mile.

Furthermore, you are a visible and confident presenter, Dutch, French and English hold no secrets from you and you can effectively and fluently communicate in both languages.

You will get the opportunity to visit places and network, please make sure you are flexible in time and willing to travel.

‘Can Do’ is your motto, you demonstrate initiative and you hold a collaborative & proactive attitude.


Modis' client, the pharmaceutical company, is hiring you directly under a permanent open end contract on their payroll. You are offered a very competitive salary including a wide extra-legal package!

Ideally this is a full time position.
