Careers for Scientists in the Pharmaceutical Industry

Two leaflets on career opportunities for scientists in GlaxoSmithKline’s Research and Development (R&D) business.

The leaflet for students aged 14 to 16 highlights career opportunities, qualifications needed, salaries and benefits, and describes the main phases in the discovery and development of a new medicine. A simple chart shows where students who study a variety of degrees at university would fit into the process.

The leaflet for post-16 students provides more detailed information on what scientists with different degree disciplines actually do within the R&D process.

Not only do the leaflets contain careers information, but a wealth of information for Science in the Workplace coursework.

Free of charge. (Limit of 20 of each leaflet per school per year).
