Career Decision Strategies in the Era of Biotech:
How to Decide What Pathway is Right for You

William T. Schrader
XenoPharm, Inc

The explosion of new biotechnology companies means that there are many avenues for a young bioscientist to choose from.

What's the difference between working in universities, government labs, biotechnology companies and large multinational pharmaceutical giants? How can I decide which type of place is likely to be best suited for me? What are the trade-offs in terms of stability, independence, resources, and finances? Can I make a change once I've gone down one road? What sort of skill-set will make me most attractive to a potential employer? What are they looking for when they interview a candidate?"

These and other considerations will be the focus of a career-strategy talk by Dr. Schrader, who has had experience in many aspects of bioscience.
