Advancing technical achievement through career development

Career Central LogoMRS members are research professionals from industry, academia and government from around the world, and they choose MRS because it is important to their work and their careers.

MRS continues to expand its professional development portfolio, as well as promote diversity and inclusion in the scientific workforce, with career services available to the global materials community.  The MRS Job Board offers an active, searchable resource for job seekers and employers, serving as the first place to turn to find job openings or targeted, qualified job candidates.  In addition, Career Fairs at MRS Spring and Fall Meetings serve as popular forums for on-site job interviews, mentoring sessions with senior scientists, resume critiques, mock interviews, and professional development seminars and workshops.    

MRS also acknowledges outstanding contributions to the progress of materials research via its Awards Program—honoring those whose work has already impacted the field, as well as those whose work show great promise for future leadership.

But our work here is far from complete.  MRS is dedicated to building upon this interactive framework in which materials researchers can convene, collaborate, educate and communicate—advancing careers while promoting the global understanding of materials.
