Senior Global Brand Med Aff Lead

You want to see farther, and here at Alcon we have some shoulders for you to stand on. You didn’t flinch from the hard courses in school and now you navigate just fine between physics and engineering, chemistry and statistics. But you’re looking for more. You want to make a difference. Alcon’s world-class research and development team is the place to find out how much of a difference you can make. As you work with us, you’ll be able to reach the point where standard methods no longer suffice—you’ll need to take your game to the next level. The challenge might be to design new concepts for intraocular lenses or novel non-clinical models for cataract surgery. It could be an assignment to collaborate on advanced analytical methods or to consult with outside specialists on new trends. At Alcon, there’s a variety of scientific and technological areas to explore. Our R&D teams are already looking for better ways to improve people’s eyesight and we think you can help us see a little farther too. Come and share our vision.
