Recruiting the next generation

Recruiting the next generation of researchers with in-demand skills is essential to the success of a research institute like OICR. On May 6, representatives from OICR attended the University of Toronto Life Sciences Career Development Society’s (LSCDS) Career Day. The Institute’s booth was very busy as students in chemistry, biology, medicine and other fields came by to find out about the research being done at OICR and how their skills could be applied. OICR also held a well-attended ‘Spotlight Session’ to inform students about the Institute’s research programs and the benefits of working at OICR.

Students were invited to visit OICR later this month to get a firsthand look at the Institute’s facilities, to hear more about current projects and to speak to its researchers about career paths. OICR would like to congratulate LSCDS for a very successful event and thanks to everyone who stopped by to find out more about OICR.
