JFAR organizes quarterly events that appeal to the specific needs of our early-career HIV/AIDS researchers and clinician-scientists—some centered on specific skills-building; others more socially-oriented, focused on networking, planting seeds for collaboration, and learning from one another. Our next event happens in September:
Interviewing for Industry Positions
Executive Director, UCSF Office of Career and Professional Development
Mission Hall 3500
UCSF Mission Bay
The session will include tips about applying for and interviewing for positions in industry, and the transition from an academic training environment to an industry-level position. The presentation will be followed by a social hour where you are all encouraged to informally speak with prior UCSF post-graduate trainees now working in positions at Gilead, Roche, and Genentech. This will be a great opportunity to directly discuss with these individuals their experience in making the academic-to-industry transition.
