A scientific career with AbbVie puts employees at the forefront of making a remarkable impact on people's lives. We are scientists, researchers, communicators, manufacturing specialists and regulatory experts, but we are also parents, brothers, sisters, friends, community leaders, volunteers, and more. We have a lot in common with the people we serve, and we come together every day with a unified passion to create, discover, and deliver new ways to help improve people's health and address areas of unmet need in oncology.

The best science takes the best scientists. At AbbVie, we support a team of talented individuals as they unite to take on the toughest challenges in oncology.


Our R&D professionals pursue progressive science and research to break new ground in oncology. To be successful, we seek physician and postdoctoral talent who share our passion and are willing to challenge themselves to find the best solutions for people affected by cancer. Our professional programs provide opportunities to work alongside some of the world's most respected scientists and industry leaders.


The postdoctoral program is designed for true investigational and experimental research. Participants will be mentored by renowned industry scientists and collaborators at AbbVie and will focus on delivering cutting-edge advancements in discovery, developmental sciences, and drug product development. The inspirational training program fosters a learning environment that advances both individual development and science through networking opportunities at national conferences, attendance at speaker bureaus and panel discussions, and technical writing and presentation skills training—all part of AbbVie's commitment to making this an unrivaled postdoctoral experience.


The physician development program was established in 1996 with the goal of developing future leaders for our pharmaceutical research and development team. It is a two-year, rotation-based program located in North Chicago, IL, where our biopharmaceutical business is headquartered. The program provides opportunities for physicians new to the industry to gain exposure to multiple functional areas and businesses, while developing working relationships with some of the world's most respected scientists and industry leaders.
