This workshop hopes to create an awareness about the various career options available to Masters and PhD level students in biological sciences. A life in academia has always been thought of as the obvious choice for science graduates. Through this workshop, we will bring you face-to-face with people who have successfully carved a niche for themselves outside of academia.
