Regulatory Affairs Director
Feel valued for your influential work in shaping drug development and gaining fast, efficient approvals. We are pro-actively involved in the strategy, changing the course for approvals and influencing regulators on new technology. Without us, our ground-breaking science wouldn't have half the impact.
At AstraZeneca, we put patients first and strive to meet their unmet needs worldwide. Working here means being results-oriented thinking big and working together to make the impossible a reality. If you are swift to action, confident to lead, willing to collaborate, and curious about what science can do, then you're our kind of person.
AstraZeneca's pipeline of innovative medicines is consistently growing within both Cardiovascular, Renal and Metabolism (CVRM) and Respiratory and Immunology (R&I) two of our major therapy areas. To meet the increasing demand of regulatory expertise, we continue to expand our regulatory functions through the recruitment of strategically focused Regulatory Affairs professionals . With us, you will get the opportunity to work across the spectrum of drug development to progress a rich and diverse pipeline of both small and big molecules. You will work across multiple therapy areas in an atmosphere of collaboration and inclusion where Regulatory Affairs is a respected voice and considered an equal partner in the business.
We continue to expand our regulatory teams at AstraZeneca's dynamic R&D sites in Gothenburg, Sweden, Cambridge, UK, Gaithersburg, US and Durham, US. If you are looking for a new challenge, we are offering opportunities in different disease areas and at different levels, depending on your expertise and previous experience.
