James in Federal Way, Washington said: You ran clinical trials on people...of course that would transfer.
I'm sure you could at least work as a clinical research coordinator at a university/CRO/pharm company. If you have any luck with contacts it seems like you could even get a CRA job.
Once you get those positions it takes several years of work (I would guess at least five) to get into management. Put all that stuff on your resume and see where it takes you.
P.S. - Just curious, why don't you want to work as a scientist in a lab and start making some $?
Thanks for your response, James. Since my original post, I've spoken to one contact who has given me a similar response to yours. In terms of working as a scientist in a lab - I haven't ruled that out but, after years of working with cells in a dish, I much prefer research with real people. Also, the life sciences sector where I currently live is very small, and so there are not many opportunities to work outside of a university setting here. I am willing to move, but would like to narrow down some job options first.
Thanks again for your response.
