AstraZeneca to add 80 jobs in Waltham

Company cutting 1,200 in Delaware

Anglo-Swedish drug maker AstraZeneca PLC plans to add 80 jobs at its Waltham research and development center over the next two years even as the company eliminates about 1,200 positions at its US headquarters in Wilmington, Del., as part of a global restructuring.

The reorganization, disclosed Monday, will create three company “bioscience clusters,” in Gaithersburg, Md., Cambridge, England, and MoIndal, Sweden, where AstraZeneca will co-locate its drug discovery, development, and commercial operations. The smaller research site in Waltham, which currently has about 460 employees, will support the larger sites.
