More Harvard and External Career Resources

We post even more job opportunities, career events, and fellowships and awards on the CCB Community site, which requires a Harvard key to access. We also encourage you to browse the Office of Career Services website: Their office organizes career fairs, workshops for job seekers to improve their CVs and interview skills, and networking events with employers. They also offer one-on-one advising.

For a comprehensive list of jobs and internships posted exclusively to Harvard students, check out Crimson Careers website.

Postdoctoral scholars, who are looking for their next career opportunity, can find a wealth of job postings and career workshops through the Office of Postdoctoral Affairs website.

Outside Harvard, a number of scientific and career organizations keep up-to-date lists of chemistry-related position openings. We recommend browsing the American Chemical Society career website; After College, a chemistry and chemical biology job board; Science Careers, which offers advice, career fairs, job boards, and more; and ZipRecruiter's list of chemistry jobs.
