Place Qualified Scientific Talent Across the Scientific Life Cycle With a Specialized Staffing Partner

In the last two decades, the life sciences industry has experienced explosive growth. More life science graduates are entering the job market than ever before, ready to work in an industry that offers numerous benefits. It’s natural to think that employers have their pick of quality candidates skilled in the research and development life cycle, but that may not be the case.

The life sciences field has one of the lowest unemployment rates across all occupations, resulting in fierce competition for top talent. The demand for cutting-edge research and innovative products continues to grow, which has led to an even greater need for skilled talent. These challenges have significant impacts on employers who need experienced staff members at every stage of the development life cycle, from research to commercialization.

That’s where Medix comes in. We offer a specialized staffing solution for life sciences companies, helping organizations build personalized teams for the full development life cycle.

Challenges of Scientific Staffing

While other occupations experienced an 8% average growth rate in the last two decades, the life sciences industry grew by an astounding 79% in the same time frame. Despite this growth, staffing challenges remain. These challenges include:

  • Finding skilled talent: Life sciences has a stronger demand for highly-skilled talent in science, technology, engineering, and math fields compared to other industries. There’s pressure to find qualified candidates who can execute R&D across the entire life cycle.
  • Competing for talent in a tight market: Though the life sciences field has experienced tremendous growth, there’s still a shortage of skilled talent. The 0.6% unemployment rate for life, physical, and social science occupations is the second lowest among all occupations in the United States.
  • Managing the end-to-end process: In addition, it’s challenging for employers to manage end-to-end R&D. Often, organizations turn to multiple vendors for management, resulting in an inefficient and expensive process.
