HYDERABAD, JUNE 15, 2024: Centre for DNA Fingerprinting and Diagnostics (CDFD) and National Institute of Animal Biotechnology (NIAB), co-hosted a one day “Student Placement Conclave 2024 (SPC2024)” on Saturday, under the ambit of iBiotechnology Research and Innovation Council+ (iBRIC+), Department of Biotechnology, Ministry of Science and Technology (S&T), Govt. of India; as part of the Placement Cell of the iBRIC+ institutions. This was a one-of-a-kind initiative to facilitate career guidance and possible job placements for students completing their PhD in diverse areas of Life-Sciences and Biotechnology.

SPC-2024 brought together senior doctoral students, recruiters and professionals from diverse industries, academia and policy makers and facilitated networking, discussion, and provided opportunities for placements and career advancements/guidance. The program included flash talks by students, poster sessions, invited talks from experts from academia, industry and policy makers, and an extensive interactive session between the students and the invited experts. Dr. Rajesh Gokhale, Secretary of the Department of Biotechnology, Government of India and Director General, Biotechnology Research and Innovation Council graced this momentous occasion. He provided invaluable advice and guidance to the student attendees to enable them to choose appropriately among the diverse career paths available to them after completing their PhD program. He also emphasized on realizing one’s own potential through cutting edge research and by contributing to efforts at addressing societal challenges.

We are certain that this pioneering initiative, which will now be held in Hyderabad every year subsequently, has provided significant impetus to the career aspirations of young bio technologists and will hopefully have a positive impact on the Pharma and Biotech industry.
