Center for Biochemical and Biophysical Studies Spring Seminar Series

The first presentation of The Center for Biochemical and Biophysical Studies Spring Seminar Series will be on Feb. 14, 2014 in LaTourette Hall 201 at noon. The speakers will be two recruiters from Lab Support, a staffing agency that specializes in the placement of scientists (primarily biologists, chemists and biochemists) into industrial and academic lab positions. Lab Support has offices across the US, Canada and Europe and the recruiters who will be visiting are from the Chicago office. They work with employers who are looking for candidates for entry level positions up to senior hires (B.S., M.S. and Ph.D.).

The recruiters plan to give a presentation on important interview skills, preparing effective resumes and what types of positions are available in the market today. Undergraduate and graduate students will be able to meet with the recruiters after the seminar in LaTourette Hall 300. CBBS will offer pizza during the post-seminar gathering. If you plan to attend, please send Dr. Dillon a message at so that they  know how much food to order.
