The Biotech Job Fair is 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 Biotech Job Fair was designed to 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. Our first online Biotech Job Fair occurred on Saturday, August 15 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 the state of Tennessee are able to find suitable candidates.
We will update this page accordingly with new information for any future Job Fairs.
