Six prestigious science institutions have joined Bio Careers, the nation’s leading online job board and careers site for life science professionals.

Cedars Sinai, City of Hope, Mount Sinai, U Maryland Baltimore, U Mass Medical School, and Wadsworth Center are now members of the job board, joining other major life science training institutions.

The job board is only for postgraduates in the life sciences. While there are hundreds of life science career sites on the Internet, Bio Careers is the only one that serves life science post-graduates exclusively.

Bio Careers’ institution consortium also includes Brown, Caltech, Columbia, Emory, Georgetown, M.D. Anderson, Michigan State, New York University, National Institutes of Health (5 Institutes), Northwestern, Scripps Institute, Stanford, University of California, Los Angeles, University of California at San Francisco, University of Colorado Denver, University of Miami, University of North Carolina Chapel Hill, University of Pennsylvania, and University of Washington.

It is meant for P.h.D.s, M.D.s and other postgraduates who are looking for efficient ways to manage their careers. From industry articles and assessment tools to relevant job postings and online job fairs, Bio Careers is a comprehensive career resource center, free to scientists affiliated with its institutional members. Job seekers have access to opportunities including academia, bio pharmaceutical and government as well as vertical markets like consulting, public health and science policy.

Bio Careers addresses the needs of employers seeking top graduate level life scientists. The site is open only to scientists with affiliations with the top 25% of training institutions.

In fact, 75% of Bio Careers’ candidates are alumni. Other job boards include applicants from a host of fields and education levels, requiring employers to sort through stacks of resumes that are not targeted to their needs. Bio Careers Virtual Job Summit and Confidential Resume Bank are designed to meet the needs of employers seeking top candidates.
