Curious about the skills you'll need to be successful in different types of careers after you graduate? If so, then you are invited to the Biomedical Graduate Education Career Options Seminars (COS). In this series, we invite alumni professionals in a variety of science industry, policy, and research positions. Come learn about the work they do, the skills their positions require, and how you can make your transition from Georgetown into this type of professional role. We also invite employers to give information sessions about opportunities available at their companies and organizations and how you can make yourself stand out as an applicant!

More about Henry M. Jackson Foundation: HJF is a global organization dedicated to advancing military medicine. We serve military, medical, academic and government clients by administering, managing and supporting preeminent scientific programs that benefit members of the armed forces and civilians alike.

HJF's support and administrative capabilities allow military medical researchers and clinicians to maintain their scientific focus and to accomplish their research goals effectively and efficiently. Today, the Foundation manages more than 700 research grants, contracts and cooperative agreements and its projects range from small bench-top experiments to complex multisite programs
More About the Workshop
Jeff and Lindsey will give an overview of the company and discuss the types of job opportunities that are available. They will leave plenty time at the end for questions so be sure you bring your questions. If you'd like to meet them before the seminar, they will be at our meet and greet lunch at 2:30 right in front of NRB auditorium!
COS Editorial Board
We will try our best to vary the day and time of the monthly seminar, as we know that course schedules will often conflict. Your coursework is your utmost responsibility so to ensure that you have access to the seminar material, a COS Reporter will take notes at each seminar and write a report that will be made available to anyone who wants it. The COS Editorial Reports can be found here. However, we strongly encourage all who can attend to take advantage of this unique opportunity to network with the speaker and to meet other BGE students who have similar career goals as you!
If you’d like to join the COS Editorial Board, please email Caleb McKinney at firstname.lastname@example.org for your assignment. Many policy, marketing, and science writing managers often assess your lay language written communication skills before making their hiring decisions. These types of reports are great to develop and showcase those skills!
