SMERUD is a great place to work if you are prepared to take responsibility for your own work. One of our key values is ‘professional pride’ indicating that we work in an environment where we and our clients expect very high quality, but where we also inspire and develop great careers for our talents. 

We offer our employees the opportunity to be a significant part of full clinical drug development programs; some of our people are even the responsible professional for advancing a specific drug in a given indication from first-in-man to marketing authorization. This is obviously an assignment requiring patience and never-say-die attitude, and with a career plan with the 10-year perspective rather than 2-3 years.

Because of our full-service organization and co-development portfolio, one individual SMERUD employee will always have a competent team of other experts around for internal consultation and discussion, as well as the wide external network.

Even if there are no vacancies presented that suit your background, please feel free to submit an unsolicited application to us. We are always open to evaluate applications from professionals in any subject related to drug development. We are also offering newly graduated candidates the opportunity to apply, as we from time to time sponsor an internal trainee program.
