Medical Research Associate


The Expert Institute is a high growth tech start-up that has been disrupting the legal space since 2010. We are the fastest growing platform for connecting law firms with expert witnesses for complex litigation. This year we were ranked as the #1 Expert Witness Provider by The National Law Journal, New York Law Journal, The Recorder, Legal Times, Texas Lawyer and Connecticut Law Tribune – the most important publications in the legal industry.

We are seeking a highly motivated individual for a position on our Research Team as a Medical Research Associate to help lead the expansion of our Research team on the West Coast. This is a truly unique opportunity to interact with the nation’s top practitioners in healthcare and law on a daily basis.

No two projects are ever the same and as a result, our Medical Research Associates must be insightful, motivated and eager to pair our clients with a perfect expert witness for all projects. This requires careful consideration of hundreds of factors from location, to qualifications, to personality traits that may lend well to a specific litigation matter. You will also be tasked with interviewing, hiring and helping to build a team of dedicated members to join our Los Angeles office.
