Alternative Science Careers (Patents, Science Writing & Medical Communications)

Finding graduate jobs

If you are looking for a career in patents & intellectual property, there are a good number of graduate schemes to consider. Also, look at pharmaceutical company schemes as there could be opportunities in data science, communications, sales & marketing or medical information. NHS graduate schemes have opportunities in health informatics, too.

Look out for smaller companies, particularly in medical/health communications and data science. They may not have graduate schemes, so it might mean applying for entry level, immediate start positions.
