The open positions at Rho range from entry-level research associate or administrative assistant positions to seasoned professionals, including clinical research associates (CRAs) and sr. project managers. The Chapel Hill-based CRO is also looking to fill more senior positions such as research scientists and a vice president of operations.

We hope to have these positions filled over the next several months.”
