Hi,


I was wondering if there are any biotech/pharma strategy consulting jobs in this area. Most of these jobs seem to be top heavy in Boston & San Francisco with small pockets in New York. Since UNC CH and Duke both have great MBA programs, I was wondering if there are any small boutique firms here.

Also, how is the job market for science based positions in this area like research associates positions(science jobs for a BA/BS in a life science) that are non academic and in industry.

Here's a link to the companies in RTP:

There are other companies outside the Park, such as Novozymes in Franklinton, and there's a couple in North Durham that you could check out (I'm drawing a blank on the names...)

That should be enough to get you started!

Just search for recruiters or temp agencies in the RTP area & get your resume out there. There are tons of companies around here hiring. The big pharma companies might also be interested. Exactly what area are you looking to be a consultant in?
The jobs for research associates also are plentiful. After you talk to a few recruiters and agencies, your email box will be filled with open positions for you to consider.
Good luck in your job hunt!

Thanks!

I know McKinsey, BCG and Bain don't have offices here. Besides The Campbell Alliance, are there any other biotech strategy consulting firms?

You're right, most of the major consultancies don't have a presence here, but I don't know about smaller ones. I have a friend-of-a-friend in the health care MBA program over at Fuqua... I will ask whether they know of any biotech strategy consulting firms here.

There is a ton of big pharma here, but lots of it at the research and manufacturing level. Also some startups doing pharma-related work (e.g., single-dose medicine dispensers.) Will see what I can find out about what you're interested in.

Some other suggestions:

1. Get into commercial analysis group of major pharma/biotech company here
2. Negotiate with other big consulting firms for you to work as a satellite in the NC area as there are market opportunities here. ( I start to see some people doing this). Clients are now looking for quick and immediate service
3. Pair up with other medical service and communication companies to bid for projects. A lot of these companies have strength on one or the other areas and there is a trend for them to work with affliate consultants to beef up their "portfolio". You can work here in NC but pairing up these companies in other states
