Synapse Presents: Exploring Career Opportunities With Your Degree

February 15 @ 5:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Exploring Career Opportunities With Your Degree

The life science sector in Denmark employs thousands of people with a life science degree, but not everyone ends up working as a research scientist in the industry. In fact most people end up in various exciting jobs that you’ve probably never heard of such as IMP coordinator, drug safety advisor and QA specialist.

The industry is filled with endless job positions and career paths. It can be quite overwhelming as a newly graduated student to figure out which kind of jobs that lie behind the titles, and which jobs you are eligible for.

Therefore Synapse now invites students and new graduates to explore the career opportunities within their field. We have invited 18 alumni speakers from the various life science degrees with different positions in the industry to come and enlighten you on the different career paths you can pursue in the industry after graduation. We will have three different tracks centered around specific backgrounds in order to give as broad a perspective as possible, but still being relevant.
