It’s 4pm on August 11, do you know where your career is?
Come explore the opportunities for careers beyond the bench that relate to technology transfer and innovation management.
Hear from people like you who have transitioned after their PhD to achieve the benefits of science, have fun, and get paid to use their skills. Explore the possibilities from the perspective of technology transfer professionals, scientists, lawyers, patent agents and examiners, and licensing specialists that can lead to jobs in business development, regulatory science, sales & marketing, entrepreneurship, economic development and venture capital. Get tips on what you can do now to set yourself apart as a candidate for these positions.
All are welcome! We encourage participants from Weill Cornell, Cornell Tech, Geneva and Ithaca campuses to join. We also welcome alumni and folks from other institutions who seek to learn more about these career options. Slides will be made available to those who register.
Jin Liang, Weill Institute of Cell and Molecular Biology, will serve as MC of the event and panel moderator.
