Alex Woycheck, PhD

Field Application Scientist - ChemoMetec

As a Cellular and Molecular Biology PhD, I struggled a lot with impostor syndrome. I didn’t have confidence. Cheeky Scientist changed all of that for me. I mastered the Cheeky course materials and fully engaged with their private networking community. Long-story-short: Now I’m a field application scientist.

Christopher Frummond, PhD

Senior Research Scientist - Charles River Laboratories

Before I became a Cheeky Scientist member, I had applied to over 200 positions online. No successes. Cheeky Scientist showed me I had what it took to get a position as a Senior Research Scientist. Become a member if you’re ready to get hired in a top industry role.
