R&D professionals within our many businesses play a pivotal role in discovering and developing breakthrough medicines, medical technologies, and consumer healthcare solutions that can change people’s lives. R&D team members are committed to advancing product innovation at every turn. They apply emerging technologies, sound science, and vigorous design and development processes to rapidly move our solutions, and our world, toward the future of health care. They have an opportunity to collaborate with some of the leading innovators in their fields.
Many R&D team members participate on cross-functional teams in discovery, product development, or clinical trial disciplines. Others explore methods to commercialize effective medicines, devices, or consumer health products. They also have opportunities to publish scientific papers and journal articles about their work. Whether their focus is on material sciences and engineering, biosciences, or pharmaceuticals, their work has a real impact on the quality of life for people in every part of our world.
Career growth and advancement are supported within each business with both structured and informal development programs. Team members have many opportunities to build their influence around specific scientific disciplines or expand their impact through team leadership. Our career ladders support dynamic growth along technical or managerial pathways.
And the alignment between our businesses on development platforms and therapeutic areas, such as cardiology, oncology, diabetes care, and women’s health, means their experience and success in one business can lead to advancing career opportunities within other Johnson & Johnson companies or business segments.
