Job Description Summary

Job Description

BD (Becton, Dickinson and Company), a leading global medical technology company, is seeking high-potential technical talent for its Technology Leadership Development Program (TLDP). The TLDP's vision is to develop future leaders of BD's R&D organization, by providing TLDP associates with broad and deep technical assignments across BD.

Program Overview

The program consists of three progressively more challenging assignments (18 months each) which span multiple businesses and geographic locations within the company, strengthening the technical depth and skills of these high-potential associates while developing their leadership skills and stretching them across multiple disciplines. A personalized and dynamic career path is sculpted for each individual TLDP, based on personal skills and interests, with the influence of senior R&D leaders. Assignments will focus on developing each participant's domain expertise, leadership abilities, and cross-functional skills, and business acumen.

Examples of first assignments include design and development of product components in drug delivery systems or high tech diagnostics devices, contributing to the development of a novel materials technology that enables invention of new medical devices and therapies, participating in the development of new technologies that enable better and faster disease diagnostics, or leading a novel concept. Second assignments are more complex technically and typically include providing supervision and work direction for a small team. In the third assignment leadership is further developed by increased team sizes while the technical complexity and impact of the roles are also increased.


  • Outstanding Ph.D. (exceptional research-based thesis MS degree will be considered) graduates with significant leadership experience and technical depth in engineering or life sciences fields, such as mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, biomedical engineering, chemical engineering, materials science, chemistry, biochemistry, cell biology, computer science, data science and related fields
  • Early Stage Career (No more than 3 years of medical device or health care industry experience outside of the pursuit of a degree)
  • Willingness and ability to relocate to different geographic locations for at least two out of the three assignments

BD’s TLDP Program is unable to provide visa sponsorship through this program. In order to qualify for this position, you must be eligible to work in the U.S. without sponsorship for employment visa status by BD for the duration of this program, which is anticipated to be 5-6 years.
