Biomedical & Life Sciences Career Fair

Biomedical & Life Sciences Career Fair

Wednesday 2nd October from 1-4pm

BRB Atrium located within the Biomedical Research Building II/III 

From Career Services: “The Biomedical & Life Sciences Career Fair is the only career fair coordinated by Career Services that is just for PhD students and postdocs. Employers at this fair are looking to connect with students and postdocs with advanced degrees because they know what they are getting – candidates with applied knowledge and experiences who have:

  • problem-solving and critical thinking skills
  • broad scientific knowledge
  • the ability to communicate complex information
  • experience working in collaborative teams on a wide diversity of projects
  • a wide diversity of specific research skills and techniques
 If you are a PhD student or postdoc in the sciences (and that includes engineering, biology, chemistry, and physics) and want to apply your knowledge, experience, and skills outside of academia (or simply see what opportunities exist out there), then make sure you take advantage of this opportunity to directly interact with employers at this fair. There is no need to pre-register, just turn up with your PennCard on the day and you will be able to network with former Penn postdocs, Penn alumni, recruiters, and other employers representing their organizations. Students and postdocs who have attended this event in the past have successfully found the jobs they were looking for. Be one of the 300 PhD students and postdocs who attend this fair each year.

The following employers have already registered for the career fair, and more may be registering soon. For more information about these organizations, and for links to their websites, click here. All of these employers will be able to talk about career opportunities they have available. A schedule for employer presentations during the fair (in the adjoining BRB Auditorium) will be posted on the career fair website soon. Keep checking this website for updates as employers are still registering for this event: www.vpul.upenn.edu/careerservices/careerfair/biofairstudents.php
