At Bristol Myers Squibb, the work you do—often in support of emerging therapeutic areas that require new methods of thinking and working—will help people prevail over serious diseases. And while our work transforms the lives of patients, it also transforms the lives and careers of those who do it. This isn’t easy work, but it is uniquely interesting. This is where you will rewrite the rules, solve the toughest challenges, and create miracles.
