The 14th annual NIEHS Biomedical Career Fair will be held April 29 at the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency conference center in Research Triangle Park, N.C.
The annual career fair is one of the largest assemblies of biomedical organizations and young scientists in the Triangle area. It targets postdoctoral fellows and advanced graduate students, providing these young scientists an opportunity to explore a myriad of fields, share experiences and ideas, and create a contact network as they plan for their future careers in the biomedical sciences.
This year's career fair will feature a keynote address by Shirley Malcom, Ph.D.(http://www.aaas.org/person/shirley-malcom/) , who is the head of Education and Human Resources at the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS).
