BBSRC Networks in Industrial Biotechnology to run careers event for Early Career Researchers


Wed 12th April 2017, Firth Court, Sheffield.

10 am – 4.30 pm

8 BBSRC Networks in Industrial Biotechnology and Bioenergy are organising a high profile careers fair targeting Early Career Researchers (ECRs) to showcase opportunities to work in the Industrial Biotechnology and Bioenergy (IBBE) sector.  This fair will provide companies and ECRs with an opportunity to meet face to face.

N8 Universities play a central role in many NIBBs, enabling a strong and flourishing Bioeconomy sector across this region. N8 is participating in a new Collaborative Training Partnership in Industrial Biotechnology to strengthen the existing ECR community. This event provides

  • Space for organisations to exhibit
  • Major employer presentations on career opportunities
  • Employer Appointments provide the opportunity for face-to-face discussion, through a scheduled appointment. As well as being good for general profile raising, Employer Appointments provide students with an opportunity to ask the questions relating to their areas of interest

Companies participating will include GSK, Unilever, Reckitt Benckiser, TeeGene Biotech Ltd, Green Biologics Limited, Ingredients 2 Connect Ltd, FujiFilm Diosynth Biotechnologies, Oxford Biotrans Ltd, UCB Pharma, CPI, Neem Biotech, and Bouygues E&S Ltd.
