Join a small group to get personalized access to the consultants who are currently working in research scientist positions in industry, while saving with the lower group rate.
These current industry research scientists are highly successful and will show you the exact steps you need to follow for your individual situation to finally transition into an R&D role.
We've brought a number of high-level research scientists on board, each with a specific domain knowledge in transitioning out of academia and into a 6-figure research scientist position.
"As a former academic post-doc, I can confirm that working as a research scientist in industry is very different than working in an academic lab. One of the best features of the Research Scientist Society is that it trains you on what to expect as a scientist in industry. The program also provides high-level training on how to get referrals for research scientist positions, how to prepare for a site visit, and how to properly give an interview presentation to members in industry. Hiring managers for research scientist positions will ask you tough questions about your experience and how you will be able to integrate that knowledge into the company. It's important to prepare for these questions and be able to answer with confidence. The Research Scientist Society will ensure that you are prepared for these challenges."
"I came into the Research Scientist Society not knowing what to expect. Now I have my dream job working as a Senior Chemist at L'Oréal Group. The Research Scientist Society program gave me access to top-level insights from other research scientists, including what interview questions to expect and how to prepare for an interview presentation. Most importantly, the Society gave me a very safe place to share all of my job search questions. While the Cheeky Scientist Association was instrumental in helping me craft my overall job search and in generating referrals, the Research Scientist Society provided a very intimate environment that fostered rapid learning that was specifically focused on research scientist and other R&D positions. I received detailed feedback in the Society’s private group and the consultants who were all research scientists did an excellent job of holding me accountable to meeting deadlines, which really helped me. If you want to stay at the bench or work in any R&D position in industry, the Research Scientist Society will hold you accountable, provide you with a very intimate and focused setting to share all of your questions, and will ensure you’re executing your job search correctly."
"The Research Scientist Society is a great program for any PhD who specifically wants to transition into an industry research scientist position or any R&D position in industry. The program provides direct access to other PhDs who are currently working in industry research scientist positions. Once you become a Research Scientist Society member, you will be able to schedule consulting calls with a current industry research scientist and you’ll be added to the Research Scientist Society’s private group where you can ask any questions you have about your transition anytime from anywhere. I highly recommend this program for PhDs who are interested in becoming industry research scientists."
"I waited a long time to transition into industry and at times thought it was too late. I joined the Cheeky Scientist Association and was really impressed with the Association’s materials and with the level of support I received. Eventually I made the decision to move into an R&D role and wanted to get specific training for this role. That’s when I decided to join the Research Scientist Society. The program was terrific and, long story short, I’m now an Associate Director at Regeneron Pharmaceuticals, Inc. I love my new job! Who would have thought I would have been able to line up interviews with top companies so quickly and have my choice of R&D jobs? I couldn’t believe how quickly things have happened. I’m very happy to have joined the Research Scientist Society and am excited about remaining in the group to help other PhDs get into top research scientist and R&D positions in industry as well."
"I’m a part of every program that Cheeky Scientist has to offer because I enjoy their structured learning process. I am impressed with the supportive and encouraging environment in the group and the detailed, tailored feedback from the group managers. As a scientist myself, I particularly enjoy being part of the Research Scientist Society because it allows me to engage directly with other industry scientists and keep up with current trends and best practices. Being a research scientist in industry is unique from other industry positions. The job search and transition process behind becoming an industry research scientist is unique from other industry positions. This is what makes the Research Scientist Society so valuable and I appreciate the opportunity to be a part of it."
"I’ve been through the entire job search process for becoming a research scientist in industry and it’s not easy. There are phone screens, multiple video interviews, site visits, tough interview questions, and demanding interview presentations to prepare for. It’s a very different process than being interviewed for an academic postdoc or professorship. This is why the Research Scientist Society is so valuable to PhDs who want to work in R&D. Like all Cheeky Scientist programs, the materials are excellent and the professionals in the private group have real industry experience. What makes this program unique is that it’s only for PhDs who want to work in research scientist and other R&D positions in industry. If that sounds like you, the program is definitely a good fit."
