Janssen Labs

Site Visit

Hi Postdocs!

We have another site visit planned for all of you. We will be visiting Janssen Labs.

The day will start with an overview of Janssen Labs, followed by Janssen R&D career presentations. After that there will be various Lab tours and the opportunity to interact with Janssen R&D Human Resources. There will be ample opportunities for networking and lunch is provided. More program information will be posted as soon as it becomes available.

Located on the Torrey Pines mesa at Janssen Research & Development’s La Jolla-based West Coast Research Center, JLABS provides access to modern equipment, facilities and operations management - thereby enabling new companies to focus on their research. Companies are able to save capital funds and eliminate facility construction and set-up costs, therefore, reducing the time to get operational while gaining access to the benefits of a class A corporate R&D facility.
