Interested applicants must have completed two to three years of college, with an emphasis in chemistry, biology, or engineering and have at least one year remaining for the completion of their degree. Applicants interested in pursuing career opportunities in the pharmaceutical sciences are encouraged to apply. The application deadline is March 1st and candidates should send a letter of interest, a copy of their transcript, a resume and two letters of reference on or before then.
