Placement Cell - Symbiosis School of Biological Sciences ( formerly School of Biomedical sciences)
Placement Cell at SSBS has been constituted to explore best avenues of opportunities in career path identification and thereby successful placements. We facilitate final semester project/internship/job placements for the last semester at various research centres/industries and hospitals. Through placement cells, Biotechnology students are sent for their projects to various national level institutes such as National Chemical Laboratory (NCL), Indian Institute of Science Education and Research (IISER), National Center for Cell Sciences (NCCS), as well to industries such as Invictus Oncology, New Delhi,Mitra Biotech, Bangalore.
