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 of our recent iJOBS alumni have gone into careers in science writing at medical communications agencies where they use their skills at translating complex concepts into clear and concise presentations for diverse audiences including other scientists, physicians, and patients. Science writers also help create figures and write manuscripts based on data from clinical trials to get the findings published. Find out how to stay involved in science without being at the bench.
