Boston Globe - Best Places to work 2017Alkermes ("AL-ker-meez") is a growing, global biopharmaceutical company, and our therapeutic focus is chronic diseases of the central nervous system (CNS). Our people are developing new medicines that address some of the most urgent public health and mental illness challenges today, including opioid addiction, depression, and schizophrenia.

We are in an exciting phase of growth with a portfolio of products available now and a pipeline of potential medicines in late-stage development. Our commercially available products include a long-acting injectable medication for the treatment of schizophrenia, and a non-addictive, once-monthly injectable medication for the treatment of alcohol dependence as well as for the prevention of relapse to opioid dependence, following opioid detoxification. In addition, we are making significant advances with a medicine candidate under development for the treatment of major depressive disorder.

Our vision is to help address some of the country’s major health priorities through expanding our scientific and business base. To help us achieve this, we need to expand our community of Alkermes employees in every part of the organization. We’re looking for scientists with a thirst for discovery and development, and professionals to engage with healthcare providers and get important information regarding disease treatments to patients; we’re expanding our field sales and marketing teams; we need public health policy experts and economists, and people with the skills to manufacture our medicines; and we need more of the people who keep Alkermes running as a thriving, high performing organization.

We’re proud of our growth and performance but even more proud of the people behind our success. We invite you to discover more about our company and our people, our values, our open positions, and how we strive to make a difference for patients living with addiction and other serious mental illness.
