Due to dramatic growth, ISR is looking to add a Sr Market Researcher to their expanding team located in Cary, NC. We are looking for someone with strong market research skills to lead this function. This is not a management position, but could grow into one over the next several years.

ISR’s Senior Qualitative Market Researcher will manage the development and execution of ISR’s body of qualitative market research within the pharmaceutical and pharmaceutical services industries. Projects will include both syndicated research reports and custom research service offerings. Syndicated research projects that require in-depth interviews (“qualitative” research) are often departmental benchmarking studies that are valuable to people looking for information about how their competitors are structuring and budgeting similar activities to help them defend internally why they are doing what they are doing. Custom research projects that require in-depth interviews (“qualitative” research) are often customer satisfaction surveys where the client needs in depth understanding of not just how their customers or their prospects perceive them and their competitors but why.
