Job Overview

Covance is seeking a Temporary Senior Clinical Research Associate (CRA) in Calgary!

Up to a $15k sign-on is available!

This is a unique Clinical Research Associate (CRA) opportunity where you will work within an embedded, Functional Service Provider model with a large name in the industry. This role will allow you to work regionally and get in-depth within a set of oncology sister studies.

COVANCE is a leading global drug development services company and we provide support to the Pharmaceutical and Biotechnology industries. You can make a difference by helping to deliver life-saving and life-enhancing medicines to people around the world. Our commitment to this mission has resulted in Covance's impressive history of company stability and growth. We've achieved these results by fostering a work environment that encourages, develops and leverages our team's capabilities.

As a Clinical Research Associate (CRA) at Covance you will be working on critical clinical trials for large, prominent pharmaceutical companies. You will conduct site monitoring responsibilities for clinical trials, according to Covance Standard Operating Procedures, ICH guidelines and GCP, including Pre-study, Site Initiation, Routine Monitoring and Close Out Visits. The CRA role will allow you will work on a close-knit team and be mentored by your Manager. At Covance, we know that career development is not one size fits all. We want you to not only succeed – but excel!

  • Successful candidates will enjoy the benefits of working for a company that values a WORK / LIFE BALANCE!
  • Unlike some CRA roles you will not be pushed to satisfy unrealistic ‘monthly visit’ targets
  • Join a company where people tend to stay for 6-10 years rather than 1-3
  • Join a genuinely friendly and supportive company where they allow individuals to take ownership of their own performance
