Bioscience Careers, formerly known as "What to do with a Ph.D. in Biological Sciences", is a graduate student run organization which provides career information through our monthly seminar series and this website. Bioscience Careers is a truly interdepartmental endeavor to educate graduate students and postdoctoral fellows about career options. The student-initiated and organized series has hosted speakers representing many different scientific careers since it began in October 2000.

Check out Science's next wave for national and international job postings, career news and advice. There are many other helpful links on the resources page.

Upcoming Seminar:

Would you like an opportunity to make strong networking connections with professional PhDs in alternative non-academic careers ? Are you interested
in gaining leadership experience and helping to enlighten fellow graduate students about career opportunities?

Consider joining the Bioscience Careers committee!  As a committee member, you will have the opportunity to host a speaker, as well as network with our other speakers throughout the  year.  Come to our informational recruitment meeting! Ideas about speakers you would like to invite during the 2014-2015 academic year are encouraged!
