Project Manager, Regulatory Affairs

BioMarin is the world leader in delivering therapeutics that provide meaningful advances to patients who live with serious and life-threatening rare genetic diseases. We target diseases that lack effective therapies and affect relatively small numbers of patients, many of whom are children. These conditions are often inherited, difficult to diagnose, progressively debilitating and have few, if any, treatment options. BioMarin will continue to focus on advancing therapies that are the first or best of their kind.

BioMarin’s Research & Development group is responsible for everything from research and discovery to post-market clinical development. Research & Development involves all bench and clinical research and the associated groups that support those endeavors. Our teams work on developing first-in-class and best-in-class therapeutics that provide meaningful advances to patients who live with rare diseases. Come join our team and make a meaningful impact on patients’ lives.


Our Regulatory Affairs organization, made up of a team of over 100 dedicated professionals, continues to grow. If you are an experienced Project Manager with knowledge of drug development and/or marketed products, interested in working in an environment where you’ll have the resources and infrastructure to tangibly impact patients’ lives, we want to talk with you.
