Want a job in research? Look here first.
Ever wonder what heads of drug discovery laboratories look for when they decide to hire new researchers for their staffs? We’re sure you have. And so did we. So, we asked a number of top discovery scientists who have experience in both industry and/or academia about what they considered to be a good skill set for aspiring drug discovery and development investigators. We received their input and put together the list below, which details the most common responses we received from them.
GEN especially wishes to thank the following GEN Advisory Board Members for their input to this listing: James Inglese, Ph.D., NIH Chemical Genomics Center; Sumio Sugano, M.D., Ph.D., University of Tokyo; and Carl Wittwer, M.D., Ph.D., University of Utah.
