SSPC Researcher Intake 2019 On 28th of November, SSPC welcomed over 50 new postgraduate and post-doctorate members for an Induction event at the University of Limerick. These researchers, from our nine partner institutions across Ireland, are embarking or continuing their research careers with SSPC in line with our Phase II expansion supported by Science Foundation Ireland.
Based on the experience of previous graduates of SSPC, the future is bright for these researchers: to-date we have achieved a 100 % employment rate for over 200 SSPC graduates with 70% choosing industrial career paths after leaving SSPC. This is primarily due to the integration of industry across all elements of SSPC Centre activities through our extensive industry membership program. We also enjoy a global reach with over 40 % of graduates progressing internationally, almost exclusively to global pharmaceutical companies.
Best wishes to our new recruits – watch this space to see what great things they achieve in the coming years of SSPC.
