To Jonathan Rothberg, a Connecticut biologist and entrepreneur who has established several life science and biotechnology companies, exceptional workers in the specialized industry aren’t hard to find if you know where to look.
The Guilford businessman and researcher, who has founded companies valued in the billions of dollars and will be honored by the White House for his work in genomic research, is turning to Wall Street and military equipment manufacturing to staff his companies.
“As long as somebody has a desire, (has) an impact on society and has a desire to learn, I’ll hire them,” Rothberg said.
Connecticut’s biotechnology industry is small but growing. Researchers and businesses are looking in many directions to fill jobs in information technology, gene research, software development and numerous other fields in life sciences.
