Development in a nutshell - a place for pioneers

With Diagnostics and Pharmaceuticals as two primary corporate divisions, Roche is able to exploit substantial synergies in research and development. Our efforts are further supported by a network of alliance partners and technical co-operations, mostly for the development of individual products or product portfolios. Choosing a career in development at Roche, you could bring your skills and commitment to bear in a very diverse range of exciting and innovative fields.

Within Roche Product Development, you have a choice between six key areas, all supported by central project management and service functions:

  • Medical Science covers the fields of clinical science, clinical pharmacology, biomarkers, translational medicine, and early-stage study management as well as data management. You can either opt for Clinical Research & Exploratory Medicine, exploring new alleys at the interface between research and development, or assume a responsibility in Clinical Development.
  • Operations is home to our clinical study management, clinical study monitoring, and data management resources within Roche Product Development. Youll plan and implement high-quality clinical programmes that meet specific scientific, medical, magisterial and commercial requirements.

  • Quality Assurance assists the Pharma Division in achieving and maintaining high quality standards in clinical development, trial systems and processes.
  • Methodology & Innovation provides analytic solutions to maximise development success. Biomathematicians, biostatisticians and pharmacometricians are some of the professions whose expertise is needed here.
