ensuring knowledge, enhancing quality
A 'not-for-profit' organisation, run for pharmaceutical analysts by pharmaceutical analysts

Tuesday 22nd November 2022
JPAG Pharmaceutical Analysis Research Awards and Careers Fair 2022
Royal Society of Chemistry, London
Based on the great success of the past years, JPAG presents this year's Pharmaceutical Analysis symposium for postgraduate, undergraduate and early career scientists.

This event will provide the opportunity for you to listen to and hear the latest research being carried out by your peers. Selected researchers will showcase their work through oral and poster presentations, and you will have the opportunity to ask them questions about their work.

The Careers Fair will also feature and allow all delegates to book one-to-one sessions with seven major pharmaceutical companies who are bringing their careers advisors to discuss opportunities with you. This could be the event to provide a step-change to your professional career. Perhaps your future employer will be here.

Also, we have two very high profile Keynote speakers, who will each provide an inspirational and enlightening talk for delegates. Their details are shown below.

And additionally, the Royal Society of Chemistry's Careers Specialist will conduct a 'CV Surgery' for RSC members; these are one-to-one discussions for members to find out how to present a good CV. So be sure to bring your CV along!

Come along and network with peers, experienced academics, industrial scientists, high profile keynote presenters, and leading companies who are providing careers advice.

This is an event you will not want to miss.

Registration will open at 9am for a 9:30am start, and the day will end with a Careers and Networking wine reception starting at 16:50h.
