5. Covance BioAnalytical Analyst

Responsibilities:

One thing a lot of students are confused about is Covance is a data factory. Usually we don't own the scientific process, but we develop it for a client. We don't do our own research, but a company comes to us with samples they need analyzed in order to proceed with the drug. We are involved in the research process rather than doing the actual discovery part.

I am called an "extraction chemist" around the lab, meaning that I take the sample and purify it with various processes so it can be injected in the instrument for analysis. It is a good starting point for someone that wants to get into pharmaceutical research. There are a LOT of regulations and processes that are involved and starting in an entry position is helpful to learn that. I was told when I way applying that most companies won't hire outside for higher positions unless the person has a lot of industry experience (even with my graduate degree).
