Regulatory Affairs/Clinical Monitoring

Postby Bec » Wed Mar 23, 2005 10:53 am

I am currently a post-doc working on a couple of quite large clinical studies (in the academic setting) which means I am responsible for everything from recruitment of participants, running trials as well as biochemical/molecular analysis of samples in the lab. I would now like to move into regulatory affairs in the pharmaceutical industry.

I will actually be looking to work in Australia which I understand is a different market to North America, however I am hoping that someone may have some advice regarding the following questions:
Tailoring CV ? should I include my complete list of publications? My reasoning is that my publications show I have been productive, and can collaborate on projects. However are publications valued in this field?
Would I be better off trying to get into clinical trials monitoring to begin with given my experience from my PhD and post-doc?
Does having experience in running studies with a clinical component in the academic setting hold much value to those looking to recruit for industry?
What level of employment should I aim for? On one hand I have no industry experience which means I maybe should aim for entry level positions, however I do have a PhD and 2 years post doc experience with some management experience so I am hoping that counts for something!
Are there other job roles in this field that I should maybe consider?

Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
