6 – 7 October 2022
On October 6 and 7, Janssen Pharmaceutica together with VLIR and the Belgian Universities, organize an interactive career day with an exclusive focus on chemistry. The event will consist of a two-day program where online plenary sessions are combined with in-person poster sessions and a campus tour on the Janssen Pharmaceutical Beerse site.
Grasp this opportunity to learn more about R&D activities at Janssen Pharmaceutica and showcase your research.
Joining this event, you will expand your network, receive first-hand information about careers at Janssen Pharmaceutica, lay the foundations for future academic collaboration, and maybe score a tête-à-tête with a Janssen scientist active within your field of work.
Janssen Pharmaceutica warmly welcomes a diverse pool of talents.
