100 new jobs have been announced for Dublin, as IQVIA expands its presence in Ireland.
The pharmaceutical services firm is creating the roles in areas of clinical project management, data management, drug safety and biostatistics.
The company says it's particularly looking to recruit pharmacovigilance specialists, across both clinical trial and medicines safety services.
There will also be opportunities for life science graduates.
Recruitment is underway, and the roles are expected to be filled in the first half of the year.
Finance Minister Paschal Donohoe called the announcement an "exciting development".
He said: "Ireland’s ability to retain companies such as IQVIA is a testament to our attractive business environment, robust regulatory framework, and skilled labour force.
"We are delighted to see an industry leader that supports the pharma and life science sector continuing its expansion, which will enable IQVIA to serve more customers with their innovative technology around the world.”
Martin Giblin, Country Head IQVIA Ireland, added: "Ireland has a rich base of life sciences talent, is a great place to do business and we look forward to continuing to grow our business here.”
IQVIA - previously known as IMS Health and Quintiles - has been operating in Ireland since 1990.
