About Alnylam:

Alnylam is delivering on a bold vision to turn scientific possibility into reality, with a robust RNA interference (RNAi) therapeutics platform. As the pioneer in RNAi and the leading RNAi therapeutics company, we have always been uncompromisingly dedicated to translating the breakthrough science into transformational medicines to help as many people as possible. Long focused on rare and genetic diseases, our scientific advances are now allowing us to bring the power of RNAi therapeutics to more prevalent diseases and as a result, we are beginning to recognize the full potential of this new class of medicines.

Alnylam is committed to its journey to become a top 5 independent, global biopharma company. We are already admired and recognized for our dedication to patients, company culture that empowers people to do their best work, track record of scientific innovation, social responsibility, and commercial excellence.

Founded in 2002, and headquartered in Cambridge, Mass., Alnylam has over 1,650 employees at work across the globe. We are seeking smart, passionate, “change the world” kind of people who are ready to say, “challenge accepted” to our mission. Thanks to the commitment of every employee globally, Alnylam is proud to have been recognized as one of Fast Company's 2021 Best Workplaces for Innovators, a Science Magazine Top Employer three years in a row (2019-2021), a Boston Globe Top Places to Work seven years in a row (2015-2021), a Great Place to Work in Asia, Japan, Brazil, the U.K., Germany, Spain, Netherlands, Italy, France and Switzerland, Seramount's 100 Best Companies (formerly Working Mother 100 Best Companies) and Best Companies for Dads, Bloomberg's Gender Equality Index two years in a row (2021-2022), among others. At Alnylam, we are committed to fostering a diverse, equitable and inclusive work environment, culture, and workforce, and we support several Employee Resource Networks.

In 2015, Alnylam Pharmaceuticals partnered with Northeastern University to offer a unique fellowship opportunity in the heart of Boston. The program set out to equip postdoctoral PharmDs with the skills necessary to develop the advanced medicines of the future, like RNAi. The goal was and remains the same: to cultivate the future leaders of biotechnology and allow fellows to pioneer new therapies for patients. Alnylam fellows are grounded in their core expertise area but utilize the fellowship's flexibility to branch out and discover other opportunities throughout the organization with personalized rotational experiences. Part of the backbone of the fellowship program is the Northeastern University teaching opportunities which allow fellows to share their knowledge in an educational setting.

The team is responsible for creating and implementing global innovative strategies to support expedited drug development and approval of Alnylam's products.

Assuming increasing responsibility over the two years, the Global Regulatory Strategy fellow will gain hands-on experiences by participating in unique opportunities both within the rare and prevalent diseases.
