Transforming Discovery into Opportunity


Working at CDRD

Professionals who excel at The Centre for Drug Research and Development are passionate about making a difference. They want to succeed as part of a team, and collaborate with knowledgeable and highly skilled colleagues in an innovative, productive and fun environment—an environment that emphasizes meeting scientific and commercialization challenges with focused, practical solutions. In this kind of environment, your co-workers and clients will appreciate your insights, talent, expertise, and experience—especially your commitment to advancing novel technologies and helping bring new medicines to patients. Compensation and benefits packages are competitive with those in the biotech industry from which we recruit many of our team.

Working Together for the Future of Drug Development

The Centre for Drug Research and Development hires for a variety of positions including scientists, technicians, post-docs, and co-op students, as well as for business and project management personnel. The possibilities afforded by working at the leading edge of scientific discovery motivate our people, as does our focus on improving innovation and collaboration across disciplines to bring new drugs closer to commercialization.
