To answer these questions--and many others--the New York Academy of Sciences and Naturejobs are co-sponsoring a day-long Career Fair and Symposium, "Bioscience Research: Where Do You Fit In?" on Friday, April 29 at the New York Marriott Marquis Hotel, 1535 Broadway, New York.
The all-day Career Fair will feature more than 25 of the area's top bioscience recruiters in academia, government, and industry. Jobseekers 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, while also indicating where the expertise and talent of young scientists fit into the pipeline.
For Human Resources professionals in academia, industry and government, the event offers an unrivaled opportunity to recruit the tri-state area's biochemical leaders of tomorrow from the region's great academic institutions -- Columbia, Rockefeller, Sloan Kettering, Einstein, NYU, Mt. Sinai, Weill Cornell, CUNY, Yale, Princeton, UMDNJ and Cold Spring Harbor, among others. For jobseekers, the Career Fair/Symposium delivers an unbeatable value combination: (1) hear talks by the principals of the top bioscience firms, then (2) get immediate access to their recruiters -- and their competitors. Attendees will get the inside track on both information and hiring prospects.
The April event is the first of four fairs and symposia being jointly sponsored this year by the Academy and Naturejobs. Others will follow in Boston, San Francisco, and London. A similar event held in 2004 at New York University attracted more than 700 attendees from 40 different academic institutions.
