Description

Careers in science: Oscillating between academia and industry

N.Carragher
In this first issue of the postdoctoral career symposia series, Prof. Neil Carragher will provide an open and honest description of his career path in biomedical research oscillating between positions in industry-to-academia-to-industry and back again to academia.

He will share his experiences and compare and contrast working in research within academic and industrial sectors. He will highlight the importance of inter-sector career mobility in the modern world of scientific careers and describe how his experiences gained in industry and academia represented an ideal training ground to support his current position in leading an academic drug discovery group and director of translation at the University of Edinburgh. He will further highlight some recent trends and career development opportunities in academic-industry partnerships and university spin-out company formation.
