With this same energy and focus, we are committed to continually enhancing our culture of diversity, equity and inclusion and are determined to make a difference.

We are pleased to offer a new program to build relationships with exceptional, ethnically diverse post-doctoral scientists, contribute to shaping their career, and bring greater exposure to opportunities at Janssen. The Janssen Scholars of Oncology Diversity Engagement Program (SODEP) is developed with the goal to follow external talent through industry exposure, mentorship and possible placement.

EXPOSURE

Janssen Oncology will be hosting a ‘Virtual Janssen Oncology Day’, providing a unique opportunity to be exposed to the R&D process within industry and understand the critical skillsets to have a successful industry career. Highlights include:

  • Formal presentations given by Janssen Oncology scientific and strategic leaders highlighting the drug development process across Discovery, Clinical Development, Safety/Toxicology, Manufacturing, Translational Research and Data Science/Computational Biology
  • Smaller breakout sessions with Janssen Oncology leaders to facilitate more in-depth dialogue about what success looks like in industry, transferable skills from academia to industry, etc.
MENTORSHIP

At the completion of the Virtual Janssen Oncology Day, scholars will be asked to provide a brief statement (max 1 page) highlighting their experiences and interactions with Janssen leaders and overall interest in mentorship. Based on statements and mentor availability, select scholars will be paired with Janssen leaders as part of an ongoing 1 year mentoring experience.

Highlights include:

  • Receive 1:1 career coaching and guidance from an industry leader
  • Further understand areas needed for development and capabilities for success
  • Gain knowledge about our organization’s culture, unspoken rules & how best to navigate
  • Resume/CV review and feedback
PLACEMENT

Gain increased opportunity to join the Janssen team:

As a final step, based on readiness of the scholars and overall business need at the completion of the mentorship period, select scholars may be identified as potential candidates for relevant open positions within Janssen Oncology, thus fueling our internal diversity pipeline.

ELIGIBILITY
  • Candidates who self-identify as African-American/Black or Hispanic are eligible for this program as these groups are traditionally underrepresented in cancer and biomedical research and align with our internal Janssen Diversity, Equity & Inclusion efforts.
  • Candidates must be full-time, postdoctoral fellows, currently engaged or interested in oncology, immunology research or other closely related disciplines.
  • Candidates must be citizens or permanent residents of the United States or Canada.
