    As expected most openings are found in Big Pharma companies carrying out both R&D and manufacturing. The leader in diabetes care, Novo Nordisk A/S, fly the flag for 218 jobs and AstraZeneca advertise 76 vacancies. A large portion of the openings concern manufacturing (Quality Assurance, processing etc.) but also Regulatory Affairs, Health Economics and Marketing are frequently searched for.
