In this virtual event, Dr Cheryl McFarlane, former postdoc at Queen's, will share insights on her career, journey and role in Almac Diagnostics. She will be interviewed by one of our current postdocs and will also answer questions that attendees will submit via the chat function.

Almac Diagnostics is currently recruiting for a number of positions relevant to postdocs and PhD graduates and Cheryl will discuss what these roles entail and the profile of candidates they are looking for, in order to enable Queen's postdocs to prepare the best possible applications if interested. These roles are mainly laboratory-based molecular biology roles but all are welcome and Cheryl's experience and career is relevant to people from a range of disciplines.
