Our “People first” approach means we also highly value our employees, who work relentlessly to help execute our mission. Taiho’s success is founded on ensuring we always act with accountability, collaboration, and trust. By following these guiding principles, we earn and maintain the confidence of patients, the global healthcare community, collaborators and partners, and each other. Together, we are working on cutting-edge science and growing our portfolio and pipeline across a range of tumor types to address the ongoing and evolving needs of patients. Advanced technology, a world-class clinical development organization, and state-of-the-art facilities: these and other resources empower us to innovate and touch the lives of more and more patients. It’s our work, our passion, and our legacy. We invite you to join us.


Employee Value Proposition:

Taiho Oncology, being a lean enterprise, presents an opportunity to experience multiple facets of Commercial Operations at a pharmaceutical company in a very short period of time. Unlike larger pharmaceuticals, the Summer Associate will be involved with and have exposure to senior Commercial leadership. Projects will have an impact on the business’ decision making and provide valuable experiences to take back to the classroom.

Position Summary:

This temporary summer position (June – August, exact dates negotiable) will have multi-week projects in one or more of the four functional areas within Business Operations & Analytics: Market Research, Sales Operations, Supply Chain Operations and Financial Planning and Analysis (e.g. 1 Market Research 6-week project and 1 Supply Chain 6-week project). Each independent project will be managed by a functional lead, include independent research and analysis and end with a presentation to Commercial Leadership. Non-project time will be devoted to meeting functional heads within Commercial and other specialties within Taiho Oncology (e.g. Development, Regulatory, etc.). The position is located in the greater Princeton, NJ area. Housing assistance will be provided.

Performance Objectives:

The primary objective for a Summer Associate is to gain knowledge of the Commercial Operations of a pharmaceutical company. The Summer Associate should bring an intellectual curiosity and a “can-do” work ethic. A successful summer would be spent absorbing as much knowledge and experience as one can in a 12-week period. Teamwork is emphasized and cultural fit is a key criterion to be successful in the Taiho Summer Associate program.

Education/Certification Requirements:

  • BS/BA or equivalent in business, math, finance or science.

  • Working towards Master’s degree (e.g. Current graduate student completing MBA in 2025).

Knowledge, Skills, and Abilities:

  • Prior business experience with Pharmaceutical or biotech industry exposure preferred but not required.

  • Minimum of 2 years of work experience prior to Business school is required.

  • Interest in Pharmaceutical or biotech industry.

  • Detail and quality oriented.

  • Excellent writing and presentation skills.

  • Ability to learn, integrate complex information, and communicate key insights in clear, concise fashion to team members.

  • A positive attitude, flexibility and a proactive thought process.

  • Team player who can work in a dynamic environment.

  • Excellent Excel, Power Point, Word, and Project Management software skills.

  • Ability to read, analyze and interpret scientific and technical information and data.

  • Excellent English communication skills, both verbal and written.

The pay range for this position at commencement of employment is expected to be between $32 - $36 hourly; however, base pay offered may vary depending on multiple individualized factors, including market location, job-related knowledge, skills, and experience. The total compensation package for this position may also include other elements, including a sign-on bonus, and discretionary awards in addition to a full range of medical, financial, and/or other benefits (including 401(k) eligibility and various paid time off benefits, such as PTO, and parental leave), dependent on the position offered. Details of participation in these benefit plans will be provided if an employee receives an offer of employment.

If hired, employee will be in an “at-will position” and the Company reserves the right to modify base salary (as well as any other discretionary payment or compensation program) at any time, including for reasons related to individual performance, Company or individual department/team performance, and market factors.
