Less than 4% of PhDs will make it as permanent research staff and less than 0.5% will become a professor. Planning your future career early is therefore crucial, but where should you start? You might not have any clue which jobs are out there and which one would fit your scientific strengths and interests. Our one-day industry career transition day training will help you to understand: what jobs are out there for PhD graduates; which job(s) would be the best fit for you; learn how working in the industry differs from academia; how to write an industry CV and LinkedIn profile to get noticed by recruiters; and how to best prepare for your industry interviews. Would you like us to come to your university/faculty? Just email us at

About me

My name is Dr. Martijn Bijker (PhD) and I am the founder of "from SCIENCE to PHARMA" – a global MSL training and recruitment company for aspiring MSLs and experienced MSL/Medical Affairs professionals. I worked for seven years in several leading pharmaceutical industries as MSL, Medical manager, Biomarker Liaison Manger and Product Launch Lead where I participated in the launch of several specialist products. As part of my roles, I trained, interviewed MSL, had MSLs reporting to me and implemented various internal medical affairs excellence programs. With the lack of online resources available and building on my MSL/pharma knowledge, I decided to develop a comprehensive online MSL training and recruitment platform to help aspiring MSLs move into pharma. And that is how “from SCIENCE to PHARMA” was born in early 2015.
