    If you’re considering a move from bench to business, Clarion has opportunities to apply your scientific discipline to challenging commercial problems. In fact, as an Associate Consultant, you will bring immediate benefit to Clarion’s clients as you develop your own business skills.

    With PhD colleagues from across the life sciences, you’ll be part of a team that values scientific rigor in the pursuit of business strategy. And with your increasing independence, you’ll be recognized with rapid promotion and enhanced responsibility. Because as Jonas Salk once said, the greatest reward for doing is the opportunity to do more.

    What You’ll Do
    As an Associate Consultant, you will make immediate contributions to our work in key areas.

    Research. Using primary and secondary sources, you’ll identify information critical to understanding our clients’ business problems. Whether the information relates to market trends, companies, competitors, products or other, you’ll learn to differentiate between essential and extraneous – a skill that will serve you throughout your career

    Analysis. You’ll dig into data, prioritizing key issues, generating hypotheses and testing your theories. You’ll bounce ideas around with your teammates. And you’ll keep going until you’re confident with your results.

    Communication. You’ll clearly and persuasively articulate those results, effectively using slides and verbal communication to present your key findings.

    Very quickly, you’ll find yourself gaining independence and responsibility for larger and larger pieces of work. You’ll soon begin structuring frameworks, combining the knowledge you’re gaining every day on the job with the experience you brought from your years as a scientist. Soon, you will be mentoring others to help them develop the skills you’ve acquired throughout your experiences. The next step is a promotion to Consultant.

    What You’ll Bring
    You love nothing more than a seemingly impossible challenge – and the thrill of hunting for a solution. You’re resourceful, an inquisitive and creative thinker who works best in dynamic, unstructured environments. And you’re a great communicator, able to build trust among colleagues and clients. You’ll bring your deep experience solving problems and the maturity and perseverance to continually refine your approach.

    Experience working with data in Microsoft Excel and presenting information in Microsoft PowerPoint is considered essential to the role.
