Actions and Detail Panel
McMaster Regional Chemistry Information Session 2017
Fri, 5 May 2017, 9:30 AM – 3:30 PM EDT
MRCIS is a platform that connects industry professionals with graduate students in the fields of chemistry, biochemistry and chemical biology. It fosters networking and communication between companies and academics and encourages dialog on how industry and academia can best benefit each other. MRCIS highlights career options to graduate students and gives students an opportunity to meet industry reps and learn about what skills are marketable.
At MRCIS, the morning session will consist of three career panels: Careers in Chemical Research and Development (9:30 -10:20 am), Careers in Industrial Chemistry (10:30-11:20 am), and Careers in Chemical Biology and Biotechnology (11:30 am-12:20 pm). These panels will be hosted by student moderators, who will facilitate discussion between company representatives and the attendees about employment in the chemical industry. After a break for lunch, we will host our Employers Exhibition, where each employer will have a booth to highlight work the company is doing and meet with graduate students.
Companies attending MRCIS 2017 include 3M, Gilead, Johnson and Johnson, Toronto Research Chemicals, Xerox Research Centre, Virox, Ontario Centers of Excellence, Ecosynthetix, Patheon, ALS Enviornmental, Ontario Institute of Cancer Research, Vineland Research and Innovation Centre, and more!
