Career Development Series – Upcoming Events | Department of Biostatistics

This series picks up where general career development resources at HSPH and GSAS leave off, and provides specific direction to our students in biostatistics, health data science, computational biology, and quantitative genetics. Previous seminars have included an overview of biostatistics careers, job search tips, CV and curriculum vitae creation, interview preparation, package negotiation, soft skills and professional panels. Alumni and colleagues from academia, industry, non-profit organizations, health technology, business, policy and beyond, visit our students throughout the year to share their ideas and experience, and thus contribute to the vital continuum of knowledge and experience between our department and the wider field. If you would like to join us as a guest speaker, or have any ideas regarding this series, please contact Dr Erin Lake or enter your ideas via this file.
