Pharmaceutical Product Development (PPD), a local major employer of VCU students from the sciences, is hosting an Open House and Information Session with their PPD Labs teams at their Richmond Lab (2244 Dabney Road, Building D, Richmond, VA 23230). The event is on Thursday, November 8th from 4pm – 7pm.
This is a phenomenal opportunity for students to learn more about PPD and an opportunity to network. In fact, students attending the Open House are HIGHLY encouraged to bring multiples copies of their resumes to discuss with the lab members at the event.
PPD is open to new/recent grads and upcoming Dec. grads as well as alumni. PPD also have a great technical training program in place for folks coming out of a BS in the lab sciences, so this is also a great info session for those still a year or two from graduating!
Moreover, PPD are currently hiring for roles in all levels for the bioanalytical labs (BS, MS and PhD + alum are all welcome). Specific skills/majors where we have current openings are in vaccine sciences, immunochemistry, molecular genomics/PCR Sequencing (sr level roles in Molec/PCR as well) and biomarker sciences, so some majors and coursework well aligned are biochemistry, biology, immunology, chemistry, microbiology, cell biology, molecular biology and other related lab science degrees.
