jagatsastry for undergraduates
Lilly_Andy Regarding the package - we are competitive within the market place - each application is considered on its individual merits based on experience and skills
feira Lilly_Jaroslav: it's true.. but the thing in my mind is that.. even if eli lilly is large company, most of the job is about pharmaceutical.. and PROBABLY only small-size division of IT. correct me if I am wrong

jagatsastry any internship opportunity for undergraduates
max_ashi i am going to be a graduate in this may. should i apply now??
Lilly_Mark Clinical trials.. tend to come later, once we have a molecule that looks good..
Lilly_Mark early drug discovery generates the MOST data..
Lilly_Andy Regarding opportunities and relocation/vias's, we are open to this in specific cases, where people have distinct skills and the destination country is able to support the application.......
Lilly_Mark and making sense of it all... is what leads you to discover a molecule that can work as a drug.
