At AstraZeneca, we're not afraid to do things differently. We're resetting expectations of what a bio-pharmaceutical company can be. This means we're opening up new ways to work, pioneering cutting edge methods and bringing unexpected teams together.

This is an amazing opportunity to play a fundamental part in building a franchise and launching a new exciting product in HER2+ breast cancer, in collaboration with our alliance partner. These are critical hires for AstraZeneca, and so we're looking for talented individuals, who can be bold in their pursuit of success!

We are committed to advancing the science of oncology to deliver life-changing medicines to people most in need. Our broad pipeline of next-generation medicines is focused on four main disease areas: breast, ovarian, lung and haematological cancers, using four key scientific approaches: immunotherapy, tumour drivers and resistance mechanisms, DNA damage response, and antibody-drug conjugates.

Our ambition is to eliminate cancer as a cause of death through scientific discovery and collaborations.

If you're inspired by the possibilities of science to make a difference and ready to discover what you can do by joining us on this exciting journey and believe you can contribute to this bold ambition - join us!
