In our global biologics research and development arm, our mission is centred on delivering life-changing products that advance world health, and help fight, better treat and even cure disease. As a postdoc with us, you’ll play a pivotal role in channelling our scientific capabilities to make a positive impact on changing the lives of patients.

The AstraZeneca Postdoc Programme is uniquely designed to immerse you in the industry while providing a clear path to publications and access to state-of-the-art technologies. Our postdoc scientists help to build our scientific reputation and increase our scientific visibility through quality publications. Here, you’ll have access to leading mentors while joining the strong collaborative network as part of the AstraZeneca family. Together, we explore advanced biologic technologies and how they can treat disease. We also have a dynamic scientific environment that fosters collaboration and innovation.

You’ll be supported by experienced scientists and conduct research in our state-of-the-art laboratories, equipped with cutting-edge technologies. This will help drive innovation in the scientific areas of particular interest to our R&D business, enabling us to achieve our vision of advancing science and medicine and helping people live better lives.

You’ll be the kind of scientist who lives for research. Someone who loves the thrill of hands-on science, challenging the way things are done, introducing new techniques and generating fresh ideas. Someone who wants to contribute to the next big scientific breakthrough.

Always looking for new approaches, you’ll enjoy working in an environment that offers you the freedom to explore and implement your ideas.

You will need a science-based PhD and/or MD plus a strong record in a field such as Biochemistry, Physiology, Molecular and Cellular Biology, Pharmacology, Computational Biology/Chemistry, Informatics, Medicinal Chemistry, Biophysics, Structural Biology, Safety & Toxicology, Clinical Research, and/or Statistics.

Just as important, you’ll combine a natural curiosity with strong technical ability and a genuine love of science and what it can achieve. The successful candidate will benefit from daily interaction with highly accomplished scientists with whom they will collaborate.
