STEM Graduate Career Forum

This is a past event

Would you like to know how to break into the pharmaceutical industry? What to look for when seeking a postdoctoral research position? Or maybe, your ambition is to one day manage a start-up company, but you have no idea where to begin? 

The STEM Graduate Career Forum is an opportunity for you to have these questions - and many more - answered! The Forum brings together seasoned professionals from different STEM fields (focused primarily in the areas of biotechnology, biomolecular engineering, and pharmaceuticals), and gives you the chance to discuss the keys to success in these industries as part moderated panel. In addition, you'll have the chance to chat with them over a catered lunch. 

The best part? All of this is free for graduate students!

The 2020 STEM Graduate Career Forum will be held on Monday, February 3rd, from 9 AM - 1 PM, in the Trabant Student Center Multipurpose Room. Doors open at 8:30. 

This year will feature two panels: panel one focuses on careers in academia, while panel two focuses on careers in or around the biotechnology & pharmaceutical industries. 

Our keynote speaker for this year's event is Bryan Tracy, CEO and co-founder of New Castle-based bioengineering firm White Dog Laboratories.
