A health care company with global reach. A product pipeline filled to the brim. A team committed to scientific advancement. 

Think what's possible. 

A global healthcare leader, Novartis has one of the most exciting product pipelines in the industry today. A pipeline of innovative medicines brought to life by diverse, talented, performance driven people. All of which makes us one of the most rewarding employers in our field.

Are you ready to start leaning again?

927 million. That';s how many lives our products touched in 2017. And while we're proud of that, in this world of digital and technological transformation, we must also ask ourselves this: how can we continue to improve and extend even more people's lives? 

The Novartis Institutes for Biomedical Research (NIBR) is looking for a highly motivated Scientific Associate with experience in protein mass spectrometry/quantitative proteomics to be part of a proteomics team committed to support innovative biological drug discovery efforts. 

What you'll be doing:

Perform LC/MS based proteomics experiments to answer key scientific questions from NIBR project teams. 

Independently conducting experiments from sample preparation, LC-MS/MS to data analysis; interpretation. 

Translate key scientific questions to essential proteomics experiments; design the study jointly with project team collaborators. 

Perform the proteomics study independently.

We believe the answers are found when curious, courageous and collaborative people like you are empowered to ask new questions, make bolder decisions and take smarter risks.

We are Novartis. Join us and help reimagine medicine.
