We’re running a workshop on ‘life beyond the bench’ at the NatureJobs Careers Expo this Thursday 19 September, so please do drop in if you’re attending the expo. Attendees will have the opportunity to do some speed networking and hear from a panel of former scientists who now work for Digital Science.

Here’s what it’s all about:

Life beyond the bench: I love science but I don’t want to stay in research!

Want to know about the world of careers for scientists that are outside of research? If you love science but are just not sure you want to be in a lab forever then we’ll show you how scientific researchers can work in business. At Digital Science we work with scientists in various ways – entrepreneurs, product managers, developers, designers — the list goes on. In this workshop you’ll get an insight into what it’s like to work for a scientific start-up and how we take an idea in scientific innovation and turn it into a product.

Find us in Room D from 2.30 – 3.30. To find out more and book go to NatureJobs http://www.nature.com/natureconferences/njce2013/workshops/digitalsci.html
