This is a fully-funded, week-long training course designed to give you practical experience of the work of a graduate chemist in the pharmaceutical industry. Based in the GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) research laboratories we will provide you with personalised laboratory tuition together with coaching in interview technique, presentation skills and working in teams.
This programme now in its eleventh year will be held at the GlaxoSmithKline Medicines Research Centre, Stevenage, Hertfordshire, on 14th – 19th September 2014.
The Training Experience is one approach that GSK uses to encourage high calibre chemists from a variety of backgrounds to apply for positions in the pharmaceutical industry; therefore:
You should be an analytical/computational/synthetic chemistry undergraduate about to enter your final year of study.
Applications from mature students who have elected to study chemistry at a later stage in their career and, applications from chemistry graduates who have taken a career break or moved into another area of work/business and wish to return to a career in chemistry in the pharmaceutical industry, are also welcomed.
If you would like to gain an insight into the pharmaceutical industry and be part of this interactive programme, please complete and return an Residential Chemistry Training Experience Application Form 2014 no later than 13th June 2014 to:
