Explore Ways to Advance Your Career at Neuroscience 2013
As a neuroscientist, continuing to develop your professional skills is as important as your knowledge of science. No matter how exciting, your research can’t begin without a compelling grant proposal. Your work won’t be recognized unless you publish your findings.
At Neuroscience 2013, you’ll hear from seasoned SfN members about how to advance your career, whether in academia or research, in a series of career-focused workshops. Moderators include researchers from the National Institutes of Health, the National Cancer Institute, and the National Science Foundation, among others, who will discuss how to get your foot in the door if you are just beginning your career, and the latest practices for mid-career and senior scientists.
A panel discussion on “Careers Beyond the Bench” will explore the career trajectories of people in non-academic settings, such as science communication or the tech industry, and how to make a career transition between sectors.
