Vitae interview: the transition to industry
Vitae published an interview between columnist Viviane Callier and Kristin Krukenberg. Krukenberg completed her Ph.D. in chemistry and chemical biology at the University of California at San Francisco and her postdoctoral fellowship at Harvard Medical School. She has since transitioned from academia to industry and works as an analytical scientist at Shire, a biotechnology company. In the interview, Krukenberg discusses how benchwork and communication skills acquired in graduate school prepared her for her current position. She attended career workshops while at Harvard and encourages people to do career planning earlier in their training. Check out the interview on Vitae.
