Job Overview:

Completing the enrollment of the first patient. Without delays, without mistakes.


This is what our Start-up Specialists live for: orchestrating the activities that will allow sites to be activated fast so they can immediately begin to screen patients.


And now, we have several jobs open at our Clinical Startup  team (levels: Senior Specialist and Specialist).


Covance has supported the pharmaceutical industry develop more medicines worldwide than any other company, including the top 50 best-selling drugs on the market today. In Germany, our Start up team has been reinforced during the COVID pandemic, and we are determined to make it grow even more.


Join us and see why more than 90% of the top 20 global pharmaceutical companies are repeat customers.


We can offer you not only a job, but a stable, long-term international career.





On a normal day, you will find yourself providing your expertise planning the whole process flow & timelines until Site Activation, or customizing ICFs and patient facing documents. We will trust you to be Covance´s main primary contact for sites and to drive the collection, tracking and quality review of all essential & investigator documents. You will take ownership of the submissions to ECs and Third Bodies in Germany, Austria and Switzerland, and we will need your wise input answering submission/approval issues.


From the initial project specific planning to Site Activation green light – that´s you.


To thrive in this job, you must:


  • Be a site-relationship builder: you are experienced in getting sites to provide you with the documents you need on time (and with non-responsive sites, you know how to balance the “push” with being friendly)
  • Be our ECs/Third Body Parties Confident: when they raise submissions/ approval questions, you know how to ask, listen and really understand their need, and you know how to answer them in an exact and diplomatic manner too.



We need your presence at our Munich office, and depending on your seniority/learning process, we are ready to offer a combined office/home based job.


You prefer to work Full-time


Business proficiency in German - both spoken and written - as well as a good command of English are a must for these jobs.


Solid and proven Site Start-Up experience in ph I to III clinical trials in Germany AND one of the other DACH countries: Austria / Switzerland, including deep working knowledge of ICH-GCP and , IRB/IEC regulations


University/College degree (life Science preferred), or certification in a health related profession from an accredited institution (e.g. nursing, medical or lab technology, etc.)




We also consider interesting for these jobs Start-up experience in: Ph IV, observational/ NIS; Medical Devices and GMO clinical trials.
