The Rutgers University Interdisciplinary Job Opportunities for Biomedical Scientists Program, funded by the National Institutes of Health, exposes life science PhD students and postdocs to a range of non-academic career options and empowers them to pursue their career goals. In 2014 Rutgers became 1 of only 17 schools in the country to be awarded an NIH BEST grant and iJOBS programming has now expanded to all campuses of Rutgers as well as Princeton, Rowan, NJ Institute of Technology and Stevens Institute of Technology. iJOBS maintains research as the primary trainee focus, while offering programming to broaden trainee's perspectives, experiences and knowledge to facilitate pursuit of academic and non-academic careers.
Many PhDs go into the field of education and science outreach. Come meet scientists who teach and work at places such as Community Colleges, the Liberty Science Center, the BioBus, Students2Science, the Rutgers Science Bus and the Geology Museum. They will share their passion for education and public outreach with you and give you advice on how to get into the field. As scientists, it is our responsibility to help educate the public about the importance of research.
