PARC is a place where the "entrepreneurial scientist" will thrive -- people with that rare combination of a passion for deep research, a pioneering spirit, and the business savvy of an entrepreneur.
PARC is a place where you can do your best work. [download overview]
Your work has impact. Unlike universities, you’ll work hands-on to prototype and co-develop your research directly with clients. You'll also influence and shape disciplines through conferences, publications, patents, and more.
You get the best of both worlds. We offer the stability of a large company (owned by Xerox Corporation) with the entrepreneurial spirit of a startup (independent subsidiary). You also get to combine the intellectually stimulating environment of academia with business savvy.
Your work is leading edge. Your work will be part of the world’s fastest growing and changing technologies. You’ll be tackling the most challenging problems and needs.
You have freedom and variety. You’ll work on different projects for different clients (large corporations, startups, government agencies) across multiple industries and application domains.
You get flexibility and independence. You have a lot of autonomy, and the freedom to choose how, when, and where you get your work done.
You collaborate with the best and the brightest. You will be part of the DNA that pioneered technological change... and continues to do so.
