Asia-Pacific is seeing a hiring boom in clinical trial operations industry AI roles

Some parts of the world are investing more heavily in artificial intelligence roles than others.

By Data Journalism Team

Asia-Pacific was the fastest growing region for artificial intelligence (AI) hiring among clinical trial operations industry companies in the three months ending March.

The number of roles in Asia-Pacific made up 8.5% of total AI jobs – up from 7.7% in the same quarter last year.

That was followed by North America, which saw a 0.5 year-on-year percentage point change in AI roles.

The figures are compiled by GlobalData, who track the number of new job postings from key companies in various sectors over time. Using textual analysis, these job advertisements are then classified thematically.

GlobalData's thematic approach to sector activity seeks to group key company information by topic to see which companies are best placed to weather the disruptions coming to their industries.

These key themes, which include artificial intelligence, are chosen to cover "any issue that keeps a CEO awake at night".

By tracking them across job advertisements it allows us to see which companies are leading the way on specific issues and which are dragging their heels - and importantly where the market is expanding and contracting.

Which countries are seeing the most growth for AI job ads in the clinical trial operations industry?

The fastest growing country was India, which saw 4.5% of all AI job adverts in the three months ending March 2021, increasing to 6.4% in the three months ending March this year.

That was followed by the United Kingdom (up 1.1 percentage points), Switzerland (1), and France (0.9).

The top country for AI roles in the clinical trial operations industry is the United States which saw 51.3% of all roles advertised in the three months ending March.

Which cities are the biggest hubs for AI workers in the clinical trial operations industry?

Some 4.9% of all clinical trial operations industry AI roles were advertised in Cambridge (United States) in the three months ending March.

That was followed by Cambridge (United Kingdom) with 4.1%, Boston (United States) with 3%, and Basel (Switzerland) with 2.7%.
