SANTA CRUZ, Calif., Jan. 19 /PRNewswire/ -- The nationally recognized jobs board Bio Career Center is now called Bio Careers to better represent the jobs board's listings, articles and career tools that serve life sciences postgraduates.

Bio Careers is the only jobs board for postgraduates in the life sciences. While there are hundreds of life science career sites on the Internet, Bio Careers is the only one that serves life science postgraduates exclusively.

"Our benefits and services will continue and grow, while our new name, Bio Careers, is easier to use and better reflects our mission," said Bio Careers President Nick Folger.
