  1. Hello everyone! I’m planning to apply to PhD programs in either Pharmacology or Comparative Medicine next fall. However, I’m in a bit of a pickle. For context, I’m an upcoming third year university student and I’m currently working at a large pharmaceutical company. This is a great opportunity for me because I plan to work in the biotech/pharmaceutical industry after I obtain my PhD degree (fingers crossed). Admittedly, with my current position, I’m not as heavily involved in research as I’d like to be but I do get exposure to it. However, my company is offering to “promote” me to a study
  2. Hi! Background on me; I am about to graduate undergrad with bachelors in bio/math/neuro and I ultimately want to end up as a research scientists at a biotech company or in industry. My interests are in cell molecular biology or neurobiology so the target is likely pharm companies or other therapeutic development companies, but I’m obviously open to other ideas. The actual question: I know I will need to get a PhD but I am wanting to position myself in the best environment to facilitate that transition to industry. I have the impression that many academic PhD programs prime students
  3. I, like many others, will be starting my PhD in the fall with the intent to get a job in industry after completion of my PhD in either bioengineering or nanoengineering. However, whenever someone asks me what type of jobs there are in industry for a STEM PhD I'm usually not entirely sure how to answer. I have this idea in my head of managing the R&D department for an innovative company or something like that. But when it comes down to it, I really don't know what jobs are actually available and if my idea of what an industry job is is actually a thing. I was wondering what type of jobs are
  4. I am in a dual-doctoral program that is set up such that you complete your doctor of physical therapy degree by the 3rd year and then complete your PhD afterwards with some overlap in the 2nd and 3rd years of the DPT program. I am finishing my 4th year and have completed my DPT, so my University now considers me a post-doc. Last summer I had applied for a Clinical and Translational Science Post-doc Fellowship (TL1) and an NIH F30 (predoctoral fellowship specific to dual-doctoral students). I was awarded and accepted the TL1 before I heard back about the F30, but now have also been offered the
  5. Hello, I am currently a 4th year undergrad at UCLA studying materials engineering. I need to decide whether to stay at UCLA or head off to Cornell for a masters in materials engineering. I am quite sure I do not want to do a PhD and want to set myself up to be able to get a job either in aerospace/automotive or electronics/semiconductor industries in CA. I was wondering if anyone had any firsthand experiences with the Cornell M. Eng program, or if anyone had any thoughts/advice/tips? UCLA (MS) would be the easy comfortable choice to make but it would be a good opportunity to go out of my
  6. Hi! I'm interested in going into biotech/pharmaceuticals after I complete my PhD. I am currently looking into schools that might offer better resources or better networking for industry. Are there any that have particularly good relationships with industry and/or offer amazing support and resources? Currently, I attend UC San Diego and I understand that they have a decent relationship with the San Diego biotech community. Thanks!
  7. Hi Everyone, After graduating with a BS in 2015, I've been working at a stealth medical diagnostic start up in the R&D department for over 2 years and I'm planning to apply to some phD programs fall 2019 focusing on microbiome/immuno/cancer . I have a question regarding how much my industry experience will help me in my applications. Some context: I have a pretty low uGPA: 3.13 from burning out during one quarter which resulted in me receiving a 2.97. I tried really hard to bring it back up... and I sort of did, but by the time I figured out how to study well, it was too late...
  8. So all of the forums and columns I have found has been on what it is like to go back to school for law, med, or a social science none of them have focused on art. Anyone have any perspective on attending the same department of graduate program after working in the same field of study for a lengthy period of time?
  9. I am having trouble deciding between a few school's Biomedical Science PhD programs and would appreciate any insights people may have about these programs relative to each other: UW-Seattle Northwestern DGP U of Michigan PIBS Somethings I am curious about are Placement after graduation Research quality and breadth I am not completely sure what I want to study but am interested in virology, microbiome research, and genomics Environment and culture of program Interaction with and quality of other students Reputation/Quality of life
  10. Can anyone recommend Stats PhD programs that have good alumni industry placement? I'm applying for Fall 2018 and just recently realized I do not want to stay in academia after PhD. I'm interested in regression and building models, business/medical related fields are much appreciated due to my backgrounds. I have thought of MS programs, however, funding is an issue for me (I'm international) and thus doing PhD makes more sense. Institution: State school ranked in top 30 of West Regional Colleges (Texas) Major: Applied Statistics GPA: Cumulative ~3.6 - 3.7, major GPA i
  11. I work for a company in Michigan and we're looking for a statistics course that members of the company could take remotely or have a representative come on site and teach for a certain number of hours a week. I'd love some recommendations for good reputable programs or institutions that can help us. Thanks!
  12. Hi all, I'm an engineering student in Ireland and as the title of this thread suggests I am deciding between doing a masters degree in Mechanical Engineering ONLY or in a masters degree in Mechanical Engineering WITH business. I am unsure of what I want to a do moving forward in my career and I am unsure which will be better in the jobs market upon graduation. I do enjoy studying engineering but I do feel I could really benefit from studying business related subjects, to become more rounded and increase the number of roles I could work in moving forward. I have read the statistics abou
  13. I applied to several PhD programs in Electrical Engineering. A professor at my first choice university has shown interest in my application. He has over 15 years of research experience in a leading company in the field. He has a lot of citations on recent publications to show for his time in the industry. However, he joined the University in 2015 and so does not have any PhD alumni. He mentioned that he has secured funding so that I would not even have to work as a teacher assistant, which is a big plus. But ultimately, I would like hear the advice of more experienced PhD students or graduates
  14. I'm interested in both KGI's Master of Bioscience program and Thomas Jefferson University's M.S. in Biomedical Sciences. They are both PSM (professional science masters) programs, but KGI's program is more industry oriented and offers curriculum on the business aspect of the biotech industry. Can anyone with experience with one, or both, of the programs please tell me more (such as career outlook, curriculum rigor, culture, etc.)? Thanks in advance!
  15. Hi all, I am a second year PhD student in the life sciences. My goal out of grad school is to go into industry (biotech/pharma, etc.), preferably as an R&D scientist. I also don't mind government scientist jobs as I heard that they have more job security. Any ideas on the starting salary of a "fresh" PhD graduate in these sectors? I am talking about right out of school (no postdoc). I've heard somewhere around 80-90K, but others also told me around 50-60K (which is extremely hard for me to believe). Many Scientist 1 jobs that don't require a postdoc seem to be around 80-90K, but I wou
  16. I am an Applied Math and Bioinformatics double major looking to apply to top-tier PhD programs in Bioinformatics this fall. I was recently offered a data scientist/machine learning role in a large tech company for the summer. I have conducted research in machine learning applications to computational biology for the past two summers, worked in a laboratory for about 2 years, and was recently offered a spot in the Amgen Scholars program at my own university this summer. I want to conduct research in machine learning for biological applications, so this internship is a great opportunity to see t
  17. Hi, I currently work in R&D at a small company and will be attending a PhD program in the fall in a totally unrelated field to my current industry. Right now things are on the WAY down low as it pertains to my acceptance to a program. I'd like to maintain some integrity, as the company I work for has been very generous and caring for me. In fact I took a promotion in January which makes this situation increasingly uncomfortable. They do have a small R&D team as well, which is why I've encountered this predicament. I'd like to tell my supervisor of my plans so they don't feel blindsi
