Molecular Biology Career Symposium 2014

The event will start on: Tue, Sep 09, 2014 | 8:30 am
Location: Lewis Thomas Lab, 003 | Washington Road


Career Symposium


The Career Symposium aims to expose current graduate students and post-docs to a diverse set of possible careers available to PhDs in biology. Distinguished professionals, including former alumni of the Princeton Molbio graduate program, will be invited to speak about their experiences in academia, education, business, policy, and communication. Beyond the scheduled talks, the full-day program schedule will enable ample opportunities for questions and networking for all attendees. This is the 2nd career symposium initiated by the department, and we encourage all students and post-docs to participate.
