Scientific Careers - Away from the bench!

Hello all,

I was wondering if any of you out there are working hard at your bench, but thinking of a new career, yet still using all of your scientific training. For example, I know of someone who is now working as a consultant for a law firm who specializes in biotech patents. They don't know the first thing abot legal issues, but they understand biotechnology. Does anyone out there have any stories to share about people who left the bench to use their scientific background in other displines. If so, how is it working out? Thanks!

hey there,

hey there,

check out the career section of Science magazine online

I think its 'sciencecareers.sciencemag. org' but just confirm that, I'm not a 100% sure.

But if you find that, they have a special section that deals completely with examples of the type you just mentioned.

good luck
