Networking Event: Career Options for STEM PhDs in RTP

Friday, June 3, 2016
8:30 am to 12:00 pm

Want to build connections with the local biotech/pharma community and learn more about industry careers? Duke graduate students and postdocs are invited to attend a networking event at the North Carolina Biotech Center. Guests will include local bench scientists, business owners, entrepreneurs, consultants, CEOs, venture capitalists, tech transfer specialists, and patent specialists from companies including Affinergy Research, Cell Microsystems, Precision BioSciences, GSK, PPD, Quintiles, Bioventus, United Therapeutics, and many more area organizations.

Please note that registration is REQUIRED for admission. The registration fee of $10 includes a light breakfast.

This event is a networking and career education opportunity, not a job fair. Professional attire is strongly recommended. This event is co-sponsored by Duke Postdoctoral Services, Duke Graduate School, NC Biotech Center, NIEHS Office of Fellows Career Development, Sigma Xi, and the UNC Office of Science, Training and Diversity.

This event is NOT on the Duke campus, but in RTP NC - please do not register unless you are sure you can arrange transportation to the NC Biotech Center!
