Non-academic careers for molecular bioscientists
Time: 15.00 (BST)
If you’re reaching the end of your studies or completing a piece of research and considering what happens next, then why not register to attend our latest webinar? At this event, you will hear from qualified scientists who have chosen a non-academic route for their career.
James Brown, who has a background in biochemistry, and has previously worked as a school teacher, is now Public Engagement Project Management Officer at the University of Warwick, and he will discuss the wonderful world of science communication. Emma Pettengale achieved a Masters in Biomedical Sciences and since 2008 has worked in scientific publishing. Saleha Patel has previously worked in academia and for the last three years has worked as Senior Research Scientist at AstraZeneca; at this event she will be providing an insight to working in industry. Neil Jones, a cell biologist by training, now leads a group focused on target validation and disease positioning at CRUK – Therapeutic Discovery Laboratories.
This webinar will be chaired by Helen Watson, Associate Professor of Bioscience at the University of Plymouth, and Chair of the Society’s Education, Training & Public Engagement Committee, who introduce the variety of career options. The format of this webinar has been devised so that each panellist will provide a short overview of their career path, followed by an extended Q&A session so that attendees can find out more and gain a better understanding into the wide range of non-academic careers available.
