Making a difference with AstraZeneca

Make an even greater difference to patients

Are you a qualified physician working in clinical practice or research, or in industry? Imagine helping to bring drugs to patients across the world. Working on projects that focus on making breakthroughs in areas of unmet medical need. And changing the course of the most serious diseases in our society such as cancer, asthma or COPD, heart or kidney disease.

As a physician at AstraZeneca, you’ll have a unique opportunity to shape the future of BioPharmaceutical medicine. A research career with us will put new perspectives on what you’ve done before. You’ll have the scope to do your best work, and grow as part of a global team of scientists and physicians who are passionate about small molecule biologics. Picture yourself enjoying the satisfaction of translating research into medicines that bring tangible human benefits.

If you’ve been working in clinical practice, our flexible culture means you’ll still be able to see patients occasionally if you wish to.

Be part of cutting-edge discovery

These are exciting times at AstraZeneca. We’re leading the way in innovative research and exploring novel pathways in a range of disease areas. We operate across the full life-cycle of medicines. And we have one of the most exciting biologics pipelines in our industry.

Keen to help us further expand this pipeline? As a physician, you’ll be immersing yourself in cutting-edge science you won’t find everywhere, in a way you won’t find anywhere, to spark a new generation of medical discoveries.

You’ll be part of a community of bright, diverse minds who are proud of what they do. Dedicated, down-to-earth collaborators with a shared purpose to follow the science and improve patient outcomes. Self-starters who operate with few boundaries and take real ownership of their work.

Who we look for

We look for physicians with sub-specialty training and research experience who wish to channel their expertise in a new direction, pursuing a clinical investigation career that impacts human health.

You could be working in clinical practice or post-doctoral research. Or you might be working in a clinical development role in industry. Physicians join us from a range of backgrounds, but share many common attributes and attitudes.

You’ll need a genuine passion for leading-edge medical research, along with the ability to look to the long term. A hard-working and principled high performer, you’ll be able to work collaboratively and collegially. You’ll also be someone who relishes the opportunity to take responsibility for their own work.

Why join AstraZeneca as a physician

There’s everything in place for you to expand your skills and knowledge.

You’ll work alongside talented scientists and physicians, who are as enthusiastic about medical research as you are. Learn from diverse teams of experts in their particular fields, all of whom will readily share their ideas. And have instant access to new data insights.

We’re engaged in truly world-class medicine – and we do it to the highest ethical standards. Being part of a leading global pharmaceutical company, you’ll benefit from the most advanced tools, technologies and facilities. We’ll also help you to publish your work.

Ours is a calm, relaxed, non-bureaucratic and apolitical culture. So you’ll have more time to think. More opportunities to stand out. More space to grow.

What we do is important, but so too are our own lives. As a company that cares about its people’s wellbeing, we’ll ensure you have a healthy work/life balance.

We’ll keep you up-to-date
