CSDD faculty engage in all aspects of research: raising funding and support; planning and executing scholarly studies; analyzing results; presenting study findings and publishing study results in peer-reviewed and trade journals. Tufts CSDD has a dedicated and highly collaborative faculty and staff. We also benefit from excellent graduate students and cross-disciplinary research collaboration.

A successful candidate will demonstrate a clear commitment, curiosity and passion for conducting scholarly research to improve all aspects of drug development performance, quality and economics.
