For Employers
Our Motivation

Based on our 2015 survey on the working conditions for toxicologic pathologists in Europe, 60% of the respondents are going to retire within the next 15 years, 40% already within the next 10 years. This implies a significant number of open positions over the next 2 decades. The overall number of forecasted positions for toxicologic pathologists in the next 5 years is above 80 (16 per year).

We experienced that a significant number of students and trainees is either not aware of the job opportunities available or have only abstract ideas of the job description of a toxicologic pathologist.


You are
  • Looking for new employees and know that difficulties in filling open positions are evident
  • Aware that it is a great chance to find a candidate by offering job shadowing, internships and informal meetings
  • Open to give young students, trainees and pathologists a chance to meet you and learn about your company and the job opportunities you offer

Our Goal
  • To bring both parties together
    • YOU, the employers, looking for young and motivated personnel to complete your team
    • The next generation toxicologic pathologist - students, trainees and young pathologists - that are curious and motivated to learn about the plethora of working areas and job opportunities that you offer in the pharmaceutical and chemical industry and CRO’s.

What We Offer
  • We are in touch: we give informative presentations and informal "get-togethers" at relevant meetings (ECVP summer school, ESVP /ECVP annual meeting, STP meetings) about job opportunities in the pharmaceutical and chemical industry and CRO’s
  • We generate awareness: our new page "Next Generation Toxicologic Pathologist" is THE information platform for students and trainees, that is also linked to the ECVP and other sister societies
  • A personal contact for both parties: the Councillor for the Younger Generation will help you to find a potential candidate for a job shadowing, internship, or permanent position Contact
  • The Councillor for the Younger Generation is looking forward to supporting you.
