The PharmaTimes International Clinical Researcher of the Year competition is now open for entry, flying the flag for excellence in global clinical research for its 20th year.
The competition challenges, recognises and rewards the talent and passion of industry and academic researchers, via a rigorous, ‘real world’ process that attracts entrants from all over the globe.
It offers those working in the field of clinical research the unique opportunity to benchmark their competencies and skills against their peers’ in a learning environment, and have them judged by an independent executive steering group of high-level industry leaders, who also provide feedback on performance.
“It’s a fantastic way to gain professional recognition from senior industry figures and key stakeholders, leading to career progression and development," says PharmaTimes business manager and competition lead Luci Sargood.
“It was an invaluable experience that I thoroughly enjoyed which helped elevate my professional profile and progress my career,” said Martin Tanudjaja CRA, PRA Health Sciences, who took part in last year’s competition.
“As a finalist, it was great to compete with such an amazing talent pool and whilst the final stage was challenging, it was a wonderful opportunity to identify areas of improvement which helped in my professional development.”
The categories in the competition are designed to allow clinical researchers at all levels in their career to enter.
