I have been in the pharma industry for 2 years and I have 2.5 years of undergrad research in microfluidics and nanofabrication for cancer cell identification. I am starting to apply to university for my master’s in biotechnology and I am looking to go abroad to Europe (mostly looking at Switzerland) and was wondering if anyone had any advice on presenting myself as a high-level candidate to research professors and the program in general?
