Postdocs: What You Should be Looking for and How to Find It (Andrew Green)
Many PhDs just kind of fall into a postdoc, rather than thinking about it from a
­
strategic ­perspective. Your postdoc is never an end in itself; rather it’s a means to
another end, whether that goal is a faculty position at a research university or small
college, or ­perhaps an industry job. Learn how to find postdoc opportunities that
will best ­prepare you for that next step, and how to use your postdoc experience to
facilitate the transition to your next position.
1:15
pm – 2:00 pm

Joe Tringali)
Is there a way to move your skills from the bench to a related career? There is,
­
assuming you are focused and willing to invest some time in making the switch. We
will explore different paths to alternative scientific careers.
