Is Bioscience Research Where You Belong?
Naturejobs, the scientific recruitment industry’s most respected player, is partnering again with the New York Academy of Sciences, a prestigious international scientific society, to answer your questions as part of another landmark event.
Bioscience Research: Where Do You Fit In? is the first of several career fairs and symposia that Naturejobs and the New York Academy of Sciences will be organizing in 2005. It follows the huge success of their first joint Career Fair and Symposium in June 2004 that drew more than 700 graduate students and postdocs from more than 40 area institutions to New York University's Kimmel Center. This year’s event will be even bigger and better, and has moved to the spacious New York Marriott Marquis at 1535 Broadway for an all-day event on April 29.
For job seekers the Career Fair/Symposium combination delivers an unbeatable value combination: first, hear talks by the principals of the top bioscience firms, and then get immediate access to their recruiters—and their competitors. Attendees will get the inside track on both information and hiring prospects. And some may even get hired.
Confirmed Symposium Participants
The all-day Career Fair will feature more than 25 of the area’s top bioscience recruiters in academia, government, and industry. Job seekers will have the opportunity to submit resumes and have brief interviews with prospective employers. The Symposium will feature elite industry professionals and academics offering insiders’ perspectives on drug discovery and development, the critical role of regulatory mechanisms in insuring the safety of new drugs and biologics, and where the expertise and talent of young scientists fit into the pipeline.
