My work is a Story of Justice

Research & Development

"Our forensic technologies have helped in everything from exonerating wrongfully convicted prisoners to cracking cases that were once hopelessly unsolvable."

Julio, Senior Staff Scientist


As part of a smart, highly motivated team, when you join us in R&D, you’ll help generate the innovative ideas that fuel our company’s growth. We thrive on new ways of thinking, reflected in the fact that 25% of our revenue today comes from products that didn’t exist five years ago. We create cutting-edge research and development tools for pushing the frontiers of science, and also develop fit-for-purpose solutions for targeted applications that evolve from those technologies. We also collaborate outside of our organization—our R&D groups work with the top academic and industrial institutions in the world to explore and evolve new ideas and products. We constantly scout for new technologies and approaches to solve customer problems. Our work is at the core of our mission, giving our customers the products and resources they need to make a global impact.

Our professionals interact across the company, working with sales, marketing, and manufacturing, among other areas. Many of our major accomplishments come from these cross-functional conversations. The Thermo Fisher Scientific R&D team is collaborative, hardworking, curious and dedicated. To succeed here, you need technical ability, especially in biology, chemistry or related fields. You also need to be inquisitive, combining an explorer mentality with a results-oriented approach. That’s especially important at Thermo Fisher, because unlike in some environments where you may have years to address a problem, the nature of our customers’ needs means that sometimes we only have weeks or days to come up with solutions.

When you think about your career path in R&D, there are many options open to you here—for example, you can make a cross-functional move to marketing or product management, or grow into a leadership position in the organization. No matter what path you take, one thing is certain. When you join us in R&D, you’ll have the opportunity to help our customers make lives better around the world.


Our mission is to enable our customers to make the world healthier, cleaner and safer.
