Veristat, a contract research organization that works with life science companies, plans to open an office in the Triangle area later this year. Some positions are already being filled.

The company will join the Triangle’s growing CRO hub, which is already home to operations for Quintiles, PRA, Inc Research, PPD and others. It’s one of the largest such hubs in the industry.

Veristat, which plans to open the office this fall, said it was drawn to the Triangle by “an experienced talent pool and providing local support to Veristat’s clients in the area.”

It already has several employees in the area, The Triangle Business Journal noted.

“Veristat has hired many talented clinical research professionals in North Carolina,” Patrick Flanagan, Chief Executive Officer of Veristat, said in a statement.

“The Raleigh-Durham area has a population that includes a very experienced and professional CRO community. We have hired and will continue to hire very talented individuals to grow our team of biometrics and clinical operations professionals. Having a local office will facilitate the expansion of our team and allow us to better serve the clinical development needs of our clients.”

Jobs available include:

  • Clinical Operations
  • Biostatistics
  • SAS Programming
  • Data Management
  • Business Development/Account Management

All business units (Clinical Operations, Biometrics, Medical & Regulatory and SG&A selling, general, administrative) are hiring.

“Veristat will rapidly accelerate hiring as the office opens later this year,” the company added.
