About Our Team

in our own words

Eric Celidonio

Eric Celidonio

Founder, Recruiting Disrupter

I’m an entrepreneur who has been recruiting for the biotechnology and pharmaceutical industries for 18 years. After earning my degree in Biology from the University of Massachusetts, I spent time in scientific and biopharma process development roles at J&J, Chiron (Siemens) before joining Genetics Institute, (now Pfizer). It was here that I learned the essentials of biologics manufacturing and process development. Although the work was fulfilling it was also somewhat isolating. Because I enjoy the interactions with others, I knew there was something bigger for me. Then in 1999, I was recruited by a lab staffing firm to be an account manager and that’s when it all came together. I realized a passion for connecting people in science. Over the years, I’ve worked in a range of corporate and agency recruiting roles. I’ve overseen very productive and highly-engaged recruiting teams for brand name companies including Merck KgAA, Novartis, and Moderna Therapeutics. I’ve been a part of some very successful hiring initiatives and have personally placed hundreds of people into their dream jobs from technicians to C-Level officers. I’m passionate about my work as a recruiter and a problem solver and that’s why I formed OneScience, now Sci.bio Recruiting as one of America’s best pharmaceutical recruiting firms.

Carina Clingman

Recruiting Partner

After completing my Ph.D. in biochemistry I saw an urgent need for recruiters with a strong scientific background. Although I loved lab research, my real passions were discussing science with my colleagues and solving problems. Recruiting allows me to do both, which is why I formed a niche scientific recruiting firm that specialized in identifying and thoroughly vetting scientific candidates through scholarly conversations and literature review. Over the years, my firm grew to include PhD-level vetting experts in various specialized scientific areas. I joined forces with Eric to form Sci.Bio Recruiting to provide these robust scientific sourcing and vetting services to a wider array of clients. My personal areas of expertise include biochemistry, molecular biology, computational biology, and pharmacology. I work with wonderful consulting scientists in many other areas, including oncology, cardiovascular, ophthalmology, molecular dynamics, neurobiology, and biomedical engineering. I leverage my vast scientific network to continually identify great candidates for client companies, as well as new consultants for our scientific vetting model.

Internal Recruiting Partner

As far back as I could remember, I wanted to be a Scientist.  I received my BS in Biochemistry from SUNY Stony Brook.  I then went on to earn a PhD in Microbiology and Immunology and after completing a Post Doc at UMASS Medical Center, I was promoted to faculty and managed my lab for several years, writing grants and researching human cellular immunity, infectious diseases and cancer.  I them moved into industry roles as a scientist at Genzyme and then Biovest International.  After a hiatus from research, tried my hand at recruiting at a boutique firm. It seemed to make sense as during my career I had vetted and hired Scientists in my previous roles.  I soon realized my passion: identifying, vetting, and connecting talented Scientists with research opportunities with clients focused on fighting human disease. I find this work exhilarating and I took a broader role at Kelly Scientific Resources where I continued to hone my recruiting skills and exploit my scientific knowledge and experience placing  top scientific talent into critical roles.  I recently joined Sci.bio Recruiting so I could continue to develop and fine tune my recruiting skills while leveraging my scientific experience to make significant contributions to  a firm that is raising the bar in scientific recruitment.

I’m a seasoned finance and operations professional who has been searching for a role with an organization that is poised to dominate the market.  At Sci.bio I’ve finally found my home, working with a highly dedicated and extremely talented group of individuals all driven by the same goal: to provide cost effective and best in class service to its customers, while pushing each other to grow together as a team.  I reject the notion that things need to be done a certain way just because that’s the way the industry has always been doing it. At Sci.bio, our ability to provide solutions that meet the needs of any customer is what wakes me up every morning ready to conquer the day.

Recruiting Partner

I began my career in cancer research before moving to the Diagnostics industry. During my time in industry, I built a strong base of knowledge in manufacturing and GMP product quality. I enjoyed interacting and collaborating with a wide variety of people. Being social by nature, this made me contemplate other career avenues that could combine my love for science, and my penchant for meeting new people. This is what led me to my next venture as a life science recruiter. I find it very rewarding to help people find great opportunities with amazing companies. I am excited to be working as part of the team at Sci.bio, as I share their passion for all things science, and recruiting!
