Drug testing company Premier Research is coming to the Triangle, a global hub for drug testing trials, for a two-day job fair in an effort to hire several dozen people to oversee clinical trials worldwide.
The company will hold interviews here and is prepared to make job offers on the spot. The new hires will be based out of their homes and will be expected to travel to clinical trial test sites as part of their job.
Philadelphia-based Premier Research employs about 1,000 people in 21 offices worldwide and is looking for candidates with backgrounds in science, medicine, nursing and statistics.
The company runs clinical trials for pharmaceutical, biotech and medical device corporations and says it has experience in rare disease and pediatric research, as well as analgesia, neurology, respiratory, oncology, dermatology and infectious diseases.
