Are you an innovator? A fierce problem solver? In a world of rapid innovation, we seek brave inventors who want to make an impact in all aspects of our business, enabling breakthroughs that will affect generations to come. If you're ready to connect scientific exploration to address the world’s most difficult health challenges, embark on your career journey toward discovery at our Boston, Cambridge, or South San Francisco Discovery Centers.
Igniting scientific potential
We want to bring creative minds together to transform world-class science into life-changing medicines and vaccines. We’ve made significant investments in our research and discovery facilities and infrastructure at our Boston, Cambridge, and South San Francisco campuses. Join us in carrying forward our long tradition of using the power of leading-edge science to save and improve lives.
The world is your lab
Research based on innovation is at the core of who we are and what we do. Our research scientists are innovators, and you can be, too. Come work with high-caliber scientists well recognized in the industry and build a career across our various life science disciplines. We offer opportunities within our research laboratories that help strengthen our discovery research capabilities.
Compensation and benefits that fit
You work hard and deserve more. In addition to our compensation and retirement income and pension program, we offer a hybrid working model for enhanced flexibility to better meet your needs. There are also some things you can't put a price tag on, like supportive colleagues and growing a purposeful career while making a global impact.
Embark on your scientific journey of discovery
Our scientists are applying the latest ground-breaking research technologies and revolutionizing how we discover and develop medicines and vaccines. The world is your laboratory here.

Our Boston and Cambridge Discovery Centers are located at the center of a vibrant life sciences community. Here, our teams focus on discovery research in immunology, oncology, diabetes, and neuroscience. The Exploratory Science Center (ESC) in Cambridge provides a unique experience to contribute to our company's drug discovery efforts at one of the earliest stages of the process, exploring the most promising areas of emerging science and technology.
Research is in our blood
We run to, not from, the world’s biggest health challenges. And at our state-of-the-art Discovery Centers, we’re able to do just that: push the boundaries of global healthcare through research and innovation. With 17.5K of our people employed in research and development and a $12.2B research and development investment in 2021, there’s no shortage in the work that still needs to be done to continue to invent for life. Come join a team that innovates the science to deliver medicines and vaccines that may help millions of people around the world.
A career with purpose
Your work here will be at its heart, purposeful: we aspire to improve the health and wellness of people worldwide and to expand access to our medicines and vaccines. Imagine getting up in the morning knowing that your work that day can help improve a life, even keep a family together longer. It’s also a career that can do good things for yourself through continuing education and training, certifications and growing professionally. You’ve probably worked hard before, but this is an opportunity for your efforts to be rewarded at a whole new level.
You'll love our parking perk!
Both Discovery Centers, Boston and Cambridge, offer monitored, covered, off-street parking at a special (and reasonable!) rate, full or part time.
