The 11th annual BEST Symposium, hosted by The Dow Chemical Company, will be held in Midland, MI on August 15 -17, 2017. BEST (Building Engineering and Science Talent) introduces doctoral and post-doctoral scientists from U.S. ethnic minority groups (Hispanic, African American or Native American) to the wide range of rewarding careers in industrial research particularly the many opportunities available with Dow, where we create innovation at the intersection of chemistry, biology and physics. This symposium, developed jointly by Dow’s minority scientists and Ph.D. recruiting team, supports the company’s commitment to a diverse work force.
Applicants must be pursuing degrees in chemistry, chemical engineering, materials science, physics, biochemistry, molecular biology, microbiology, or other closely related fields and should be within 18 months of degree completion by the symposium date. Please encourage any students that you identify to apply for the symposium by visiting our website at http://www.dow.com/BEST. All applications are due by May 15, 2017.
All travel expenses, meals and hotel accommodations for those selected to participate in the BEST Symposium will be paid for by The Dow Chemical Company. However, participation neither obligates the student to apply for employment, nor guarantees future consideration for employment by The Dow Chemical Company.
