In MRL, we are proud of our long history of scientific excellence. The new MRL Postdoctoral Research Fellow Program aims to be a best- in-industry program for industrial postdoctoral researchers. With the resources, reach, and expertise of a large pharmaceutical company, postdoctoral researchers will be able to excel in an environment of breakthrough innovation in research and discovery.Explore our MRL Postdoctoral Research Fellow Program
Discovering and developing medicines and vaccines that help to improve or save lives is the focus of what we do. We pursue new disease targets, new types of medicines and vaccines, and new models for developing the next generation of therapeutic breakthroughs.
Our passion for advancing health through innovation is evident in the breadth and depth of our pipeline, which addresses a wide range of conditions.Explore our pipeline
Innovative research begins with innovative people. Our scientists are leaders in their fields who are dedicated to exploring new ways to address health problems. They recognize that the best scientific discoveries often emerge from collaborating with other researchers inside and outside Merck's laboratories.
Our researchers employ cutting-edge science to look at health problems from every angle - from the structure of individual molecules to the way hundreds of molecules interact with each other in disease. This gives us a deeper understanding of the underlying disease mechanisms and how we can treat or prevent them in new ways.
We employ state-of-the art technologies that allow us to capitalize on the incredible breakthroughs that have occurred over the past decade, such as the sequencing of the human genome and the routine use of supercomputing to make sense of scientific data.
Delivering health breakthroughs is not a one-size-fits all endeavor. Sometimes it means coming up with a new approach that meets the needs of different people or different markets. We are committed to developing innovative solutions to ensure that people everywhere can benefit from Merck medicines.
We focus our research on several key therapeutic areas, including:
Work among today's finest life science professionals in an environment that fosters innovative ideas in pursuit of scientific discovery and nourishes a desire to improve the way we care for people.Search research jobs at Merck
