Graduates & Research Fellowships

Our Graduate and Postgraduate opportunities are for those who have recently graduated (0-2 years) from their degrees (Undergraduate, Masters, PhD), and want to take their first steps within industry.

Our Research and project based opportunities are available for those wanting to continue research, such as Postdoctoral Fellowships or collaboration on final year projects (such as dissertation projects).

Regulatory Affairs  

Regulatory Affairs  

Regulatory Affairs work cross functionally with clinical trail teams to formulate sumbmission for our products, in therapy areas across Onoclogy, Neoroscicence, Immunonogy, Infectious deasiases, & Ophthalmology.

As part of this programme you will gain insight into the work of Regulatory professionals who are responsible for providing the Regulatory input and leadership throughout the life cycle of the product, from initial first-in-human trials all the way to the point at which the product lifecycle comes to an end.

The projects you will work on are real and you will be generating genuine added value.

To broaden your experience across the development value chain you will also have the opportunity to go for a 6-month rotation in another Product Development function.

Medical Information  

Medical Information  

Putting patients at the forefront of everything we do, we bring our medical and scientific expertise including therapy knowledge to our customer partnerships, ensure access to our products and clinical trials and attend diligently to patient safety and customer enquiries.

In this programme you will participate in development and implementation of the global Medical Information strategy for the assigned therapeutic area/products and/or cross-portfolio activities.

You will support development and delivery of medical information, tools, resources and training so that scientifically accurate, objective and current responses to product enquiries from healthcare professionals (HCPs) and other Roche Pharma customers are consistently provided in a professional, ethical and timely manner.

Informatics & IT  

Informatics & IT  

The digitalisation of healthcare has created a direct link between information technology and patients. In the Roche Start IT programme, you can explore all corners of the field – maybe even surprising yourself with new interests – while making a difference to people’s lives.
As a part of the programme you will get exposure to IT core processes as well as our Pharma and/or Diagnostics R&D, Commercial and Corporate Functions business.

PhD Clinical Science  

PhD Clinical Science  

Product Development Clinical Science specialises in late stage clinical development of molecules, conducting primarily Phase III clinical trials with a goal of characterising the efficacy and safety profile of a molecule in a specific disease area. The priority of Product Development Clinical Science is to ensure that benefit outweighs risk and we are developing medications that are serving patients with an unmet treatment need. Product Development Clinical Science are involved in key stages of a clinical trial such as study design, start-up, maintenance and final analysis phases.

The purpose of the two year programme is to provide a recent PhD or PharmD graduate (completed or due to complete their post-graduate academic studies) with the opportunity to gain specialised, in-depth training and experience in global drug development.

PhD Personalised Healthcare 

PhD Personalised Healthcare  

We combine our strengths in pharmaceuticals and diagnostics to better fit treatments to patients. When genetic differences can be identified, the efficacy and safety of medicines can be improved enormously. To this end we have a companion diagnostic strategy for every molecule we develop.

Our Personalised Healthcare (PHC) Data Science programme, take place at our Headquarters in Basel, Switzerland or at Roche UK Affiliate in Welwyn, United Kingdom for a period of 24 months.

Working side by side with other data scientists to help uncover answers to challenging clinical and business questions.The programme encourages work across innovative projects spanning multiple disease areas leveraging large amounts of healthcare data originating from EMRs (Electronic Medical Records), Disease Registries, Clinical Trials, Insurance Claims, Digital Health, Genomics and Imaging.

Data Science  

Data Science  

In the biopharmaceutical industry, each data point is part of a patient's story and their contribution to developing better medicines and understanding disease. It is our responsibility to maximise the use of this data for answering new questions and enabling larger-scale analyses for generating new insights.

You will work as part of a team to deliver data and insights about our medicines and to provide solutions that aid the collection, databasing and analysis of clinical trial data for medicines in Roche’s diverse pipeline.

Full training in systems, software and programming will be provided for all roles and you will have frequent access to senior staff that provide coaching and oversight on a day-to-day basis.

The Roche Postdoctoral Fellowship (RPF) Programme

Internally known as RPF, this programme aims to build scientific leadership by expanding and strengthening our scientific exchange and collaboration with academia.

Specifically, we offer talented Postdoctoral graduates the opportunity to join us as fellows working on a specific topic, co-mentored by people inside Roche and from external research institutions.
