Genentech Business Operations 1 Year Internship

Clinical Operations in Product Development is responsible for the effective planning and implementation of clinical studies on a global level.  Teams managing the clinical programs are located in 5 headquarter sites across North America, Europe, and Asia. The clinical operations teams plan and deliver high quality clinical programs evaluating the safety and efficacy of our molecules for numerous diseases including oncology, immunology, ophthalmology, respiratory, and psychiatric diseases.  These programs meet scientific, medical, regulatory and patient demands for new and innovative medicines globally. The results of these studies form the basis of regulatory and commercial approval of medicines.

The position of Therapeutic Area Business Operations Intern will support data driven decision making across all therapeutic areas within Clinical Development Operations.  The position will assess and analyze relevant data sources and identify trends, signals and bottlenecks in therapeutic area segments, countries and sites. The basic mission of the position is to identify areas of improvement, elucidate the root cause, and propose improvement plans all by using available data and multivariable analyses.  

The internship is in clinical business operations, which is definitely a business role and is not in the lab, but it entails working closely on projects that are cutting-edge science so it is a great position for someone looking to work at the intersection of the two. The job description says a science degree is required, but if there's someone without that background who still wants to broaden their horizons into the healthcare field we will definitely make exceptions.

This is a 9-12 month internship so it would need to be for seniors or recent grads. Genentech is based in South San Francisco, but there's also the option of doing the internship at the Roche headquarters in Basel, Switzerland (although cost of relocation there isn't included).
