Career Fair to Be Held at Miami Winter Symposium 2015
The University of Miami Miller School of Medicine’s Miami Winter Symposium 2015 will take place January 18-21 at the Hyatt Regency in downtown Miami.
New to this year’s conference is the Life Sciences Career Fair, which will be held from noon to 3 p.m. January 19 and 20, and will give students and postdoctoral fellows a unique opportunity to interview with academic and industry employers from the life sciences, clinical research fields, scientific journals, hospitals, sales and regulatory agencies.
“Since research money has dwindled, it’s pretty hard for employers to fly out job candidates,” said Jimmy El Hokayem, Ph.D., M.S., a postdoctoral biochemistry research fellow and delegate who is organizing the fair with the Miller School’s Biomedical Graduate Students Government Career Services Committee and the Postdoctoral Programs Office and the Postdoctoral Association.
“The conference is the perfect venue to help students and postdocs in the life sciences disciplines find their next job and explore options within the industry,” added El Hokayem.
Miller School students and postdoctoral fellows can attend the career fair by registering for the symposium online at www.miamiwintersymposium.com.
Registration fee waivers are available and will be provided on a first-come, first-served basis. When fee waiver funds are exhausted, discounted registration will be available.

The theme of this year’s winter symposium is “Towards Personalized Cancer Medicine.”
Founded in 1968 by renowned Miller School scientist William J. Whelan, D.Sc., F.R.S., professor of biochemistry and molecular biology, the symposium brings together some of the brightest researchers from academia and the life sciences industry to advance the understanding of basic and applied aspects of a specific area of research.
