Career Pathways in Clinical Research

The North Carolina CRO Collaborative was initiated by the NC Biotech Center in an effort to increase knowledge about career pathways in the clinical research industry and to help individuals prepare for careers in clinical research.

The Collaborative is comprised of representatives from the NC Biotech Center, academic institutions, clinical sites, and contract research organizations (CROs).

The first project undertaken by the group was to compile job profiles for entry-level clinical research positions in CROs and clinical sites. These job profiles provide a summary of the entry-level job role, essential duties, and salary range followed by example career pathways that illustrate possible next steps in that job category.

To assist individuals in preparing for these positions, each job profile includes a section on the required education/experience and knowledge, skills and abilities needed to be a competitive applicant.
