About the Job Fair
The Biotech Job Fair is an initiative by the Academic Alliance, which has continued to bridge the gap between academic institutions and the biotech industry in Tennessee. The Biotech Job Fair was designed to create a platform where jobseekers with life science degrees residing currently in Tennessee continue to contribute to the overall growth of the state. Our first online Biotech Job Fair occurred in August 2020 and connected more than 70 jobseekers with premier biotech companies across the state.
The purpose of the Job Fair is not only to help those looking for career opportunities, but also to become a platform wherein the industry and the academic institutions offering biotech jobs in Tennessee are able to find suitable candidates.
