About this event
The Crick Startup Career Fair is a new initiative to help early career researchers from the Crick and partner London Universities connect and match with top startups across the biosciences and health technology sectors. We will host over 20 UK-based startups, working on a wide range of topics including Data Science, AI, Diagnostics, Therapeutics, and Lab Innovation. If you are looking for jobs outside academia, this is your chance! At the Crick Startup Career Fair, you will explore startup booths and chat directly with founders, execs, and talent teams. Pitch sessions from exhibiting startups will give you an opportunity to learn more about each venture and help you reﬁne your interests before applying for jobs. You will also get tips on how to enter and prepare yourself to enter the workforce in the fast-paced startup industry!
