An initiative by the Academic Alliance in Memphis, which has continued to bridge the gap between Academic Institutions and the Biotech Industry in the state of Tennessee. The inaugural Biotech Job Fair, will create a platform where jobseekers with life science degrees residing currently in the state of Tennessee continue to contribute to the overall growth of the state. It is our hope that the Job Fair becomes a recurring event.
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 the state of Tennessee are able to find suitable candidates.
