INC Research – Why Work For Us?


Helping develop the medicines people need is something we take personally.

INC Research is a world-leading clinical research organization (CRO) with a reputation for conducting global clinical development programs of the highest integrity.  Our Phase I to IV clinical development solutions help our global biopharmaceutical customers develop life-enhancing therapies to improve world health.  However, our services are dependent on the skills of the people who deliver them. That's why we're looking for talented, passionate individuals to help us in our mission.

Some employees enter INC Research with clear careers goals in mind; others simply want to know they have plenty of room to grow.  Whatever your ambitions are or whatever they become down the road, we have the people and systems in place to help you get there.  We work closely with our employees to help them shape a career path tailored to their biggest ambitions, even if those goals are still evolving.  After all, success comes more easily when you think big. 


We like to work with very different medicines

It gets us excited when your research ambitions intend to break the boundaries of modern medicine. To accomplish this, you’ll often need to develop a new research or data capture technique. We’ve grown our early phase resources only through creating new resources for adventurous medicines, and we’d love to do the same for you too.  

Our proprietary electronic capture system (Scheduled Measurement System) contains a wide array of validated pharmacodynamics assessments enabling characterization of your medicines. This system has generated extensive data for hundreds of early phase studies for successful submission and review by regulatory authorities.


We work together to support your development

Clinical development is all about collaboration – close working with sites, with investigators, with patients, with sponsors, with data. Everything needs to be connected to work well. And the same goes for our employee training programs. To make sure we provide the most robust training schemes available, we’ve collaborated with the International Academy of Clinical Research. Doing so, we’ve created the first ever clinical research monitor accreditation program. It’s an internationally-recognized standard for competence in clinical research monitoring.

And, in 2013, we received IACET’s Exemplar Award for Internal Training. So when it comes to self-development, you’ll know you’ve joined the right team.

We recognize and reward excellence

Motivated and committed employees are the single biggest driver of our success. Recognizing and rewarding those employees who contribute to our success is a fundamental aspect of INC's corporate culture and key to our continued growth. The “I am award winning” program provides a range of opportunities for each Business Unit/Department to reward employee achievements.

And we’re so proud of the achievements of our employees, we regularly nominate them for industry-wide recognition. In fact, we’ve supplied several winners at the Pharmatimes U.S. Clinical Researcher of the Year Award over the past few years.

We help you take your clinical research career anywhere

We’ve got an attitude at INC: “Can do, I own it.” Absolutely everyone has ownership of what they do here. And because we’re given the freedom and responsibility to really own our projects, we can take them to new levels. And that means we can take our careers wherever we want them, too.

We bring the world closer

In 2013, we added new offices in Japan and Indonesia to our global array of places to work. In total, we’ve got offices in 64 locations and our work spans over a hundred countries. But although we’re widely dispersed, we’re also tightly knit. Our specially created employee intranet (incorporating a web-based messaging system) and our regular face-to-face team meetings for office-based staff mean that wherever you work at INC, you’re always close to someone who’s here to support you.

    Overall, the people are amazing. "Can Do" positive attitudes and "sky is the limit" optimism. Great leadership! Flexible schedule and employees are not micromanaged. Company has great recruiters, hire great people, and believes in the abilities of those on the team. Great promotion and career advancement plan, with guaranteed steps for salary and title adjustments. Allows you room to make mistakes, just not the same ones over and over. The headquarters facility is very new, clean, and nice. Everyone takes care of "home."


    Sometimes too much communication. You are on multiple listservs and things are emailed to everybody more than once. Many of the SOPs/WIs are repetitive or redundant or presentations are poorly constructed so training is much longer than necessary.

    I applied online. I interviewed at INC Research.


    Initial HR interview then met with two Clinical Team Leads who asked behavioral questions. Not overly difficult but not softball questions. Initial HR interview then met with two Clinical Team Leads who asked behavioral questions. Not overly difficult but not softball questions.
