Therefore, at Einstein, the graduate degree and postdoctoral experience also offer preparation for careers beyond academia. You acquire a unique skill set that includes critical thinking; problem defining and solving; tolerance for ambiguity; quantitative, presentation and writing skills; information-gathering and synthesizing; and teamwork.
These skills assure your success in many fields, including biotech (industry), pharma (industry), business, writing/media, marketing/consulting, tech-transfer/patent law, nonprofit, governmental and entrepreneurial.
The Einstein career & professional development program is designed to enhance the transferable skills and to shed light on traditional and non-traditional career opportunities which you may wish to pursue.
