Workshop with Future of Research

Training Transitions: From Dependence to Independence

Wednesday August 16th in BSLC 240 from 12-1:00 pm

Moving from a training position to greater independence often means a transition into an entirely different role. This workshop will provide some of the latest information about the state of the scientific workforce and a discussion session for graduate students and postdocs to identify the barriers they face, and how to overcome them, in reaching independent careers. This workshop is geared towards postdocs and graduate students in the sciences and is open to all.
