The American Society for Cell Biology (ASCB), in partnership with the Keck Graduate Institute, is offering a two-week intensive management training course from July 12-24, 2015, at the Keck Graduate Institute in Claremont, CA. This course will accommodate 40 graduate students and postdocs (international and domestic) who will receive free tuition, room and board, plus up to 50% of their travel costs, thanks to generous support from EMD Millipore Corporation.
The course will introduce Ph.D. scientists to the skills they need to thrive in industry and will expose them to the culture, organizational structures, and practices of life science companies through MBA-style case-based classroom experiences, professional development workshops, and a team-based project. They will learn how the industry develops leads, organizes and conducts research and development, and shepherds compounds through to clinical trials. The course is designed for advanced graduate students with at least three years of research experience and for postdocs.
The deadline to apply is April 15, 2015. The application is straightforward, and the only stipulation is that applicants must be or become an ASCB member. Click here for more information and to apply.
