Calling all U of T students and recent graduates. Are you interested in exploring research opportunities?

Join us for an afternoon of conversations with professionals working in the field of research. Through this panel discussion, you will have the opportunity to ask questions, learn about careers in this field, and gain insight on how to get involved with and find work in this area.

After the panel discussion, we will be asking the panelists to rotate from room to room on Zoom for more informal "speed networking" conversations with students, followed by small group reflections on your own experiences and thoughts.

At MGC she works in agroup called DoVee, where they are trying to find a clinical test that is similar to the PAP smear test which will allow us to detect ovarian and endometrial cancer at very early stages thus giving the chance to treat and cure many women when the cancer is detected in the first stages.

Dress code:  
Dress standards are not consistent across different organizations and industries. Dress "professional" as it relates to the organization and industry you are pursuing.  Remember that a recruitment information session is a business meeting and you want to make a professional first impression - even online! 
If your plans have changed and you are no longer able to attend, please cancel your regulation on CLNx at least 24 hours prior to the event time. When you do not attend an event or do not cancel your registration on time, you are preventing another student from attending the information session. Please be respectful and responsible to your student community, the employers, and plan your attendance accordingly. 
Many recruitment information sessions have a limited number of spaces, and we often run a waitlist. The Campus Career Services staff will contact you if space becomes available for you.  
If you are a person with a disability and require an accommodation, please email 10 working days prior to the event.

Statement on Acknowledgement of Traditional Land:  
We would like to acknowledge this sacred land on which the University of Toronto operates. It has been a site of human activity for 15,000 years. This land is the territory of the Huron-Wendat and Petun First Nations, the Seneca, and most recently, the Mississaugas of the Credit River. The territory was the subject of the Dish with One Spoon Wampum Belt Covenant, an agreement between the Iroquois Confederacy and Confederacy of the Ojibwe and allied nations to peaceably share and care for the resources around the Great Lakes. Today, the meeting place of Toronto is still the home to many Indigenous people from across Turtle Island and we are grateful to have the opportunity to work in the community, on this territory.
