CRT Careers Day!

The CRT is organising a Careers Day for its students and potential employers!

The aim of the event is to make students aware of the full range of career options open to them and to connect them with potential future employers.

The Careers Day will take place on Friday 25th August in Dublin at the Royal College of Surgeons Ireland (St Stephens Green Campus) and the format will include (1)keynote speakers, (2) breakout sessions on careers in various sectors and (3) the opportunity for networking.

If your organisation employs PhD graduates that are skilled data scientists and/or experts in Genomics we would be delighted if you can come along to the event and chat to the students about roles and career opportunities in your organisation.
