Life Science Career Day

In Brief: Life Science Career Day 2017

Posted on Updated on

For the first time, the Life Science Career Day was organized on a weekday, but it did not discourage PhD students and post-docs from participating and exploring the career possibilities available in life sciences!


This 6th edition attracted more than 300 participants that could network with more than 50 delegates from companies, associations and institutions. During the 3 symposia, more than 20 speakers from industry (Incyte, Nestlé, Novartis, …), public administration (Federal Institute of IP, CHUV, …) and non-profit organizations (AO Foundation) inspired the audience.

During LSCD 2017 there were 100 CV checks, 30 CV photos, 6 mock interviews and 2 workshops on career-related topics…. all of that in one day! So don’t miss LSCD 2018!

Life Science Career Day 2016

Posted on Updated on

May 21 st 2016, Lausanne

The fifth edition of the biggest Life Science Career fair in the Swiss Romande region was a great

success! More than 400 participants, 50 company representatives and 15 career

coaches attended the meeting!

The day was full of inspiring talks about non-conventional career paths, opportunities in the industrial sector, exciting discussions about the pros and cons of working in large firms versus start ups and much more. The Life Science Career Day provided participants with a great overview of the job market for a Life scientist and excellent networking opportunities with recruiters, alumni, and company representatives.

We received positive feedback from the companies and associations about the proactive and skilled students who visited their booths. They consider the Life Science Career day to be an excellent and highly attended event that provides great visibility to a company and access to a talented pool of students.

We would like to thank our sponsors, partners, speakers, career coaches and volunteers for making this event possible. Your help and support are precious!
