Rutgers iJOBS (Interdisciplinary Job Opportunities for Biomedical Scientists); an exciting, new program funded by the NIH initiative “Broadening Experiences in Scientific Training”. The government recognizes the need for preparing trainees for their future and the U.S. Office of Management and Budget recently officially proclaimed that career training is one of the dual roles of grad students and postdocs. Rutgers iJOBS exposes PhD graduate students and postdocs to the many career options available to them and consists primarily of career panels, workshops and site visits.
