Embedding academic and professional skills training with experimental-design chalk talks (Nature Biotechnology) - A Harvard publication

February 10, 2020

Graduate bioscience training is being transformed in response to national mandates for outcomes-driven training with a focus on building transferable skills. These calls are informed by increasingly accessible data on doctoral career outcomes, reported career interests among enrolled graduate trainees, and skills gaps identified in bioscience graduate alumni in the workforce. In response to these mandates, there is increasing use of individual development plans (IDPs) to help students assess themselves, identify their career interests and recognize skills required for their academic and...

Career choices of underrepresented and female postdocs in the biomedical sciences (eLife)

February 10, 2020

The lack of diversity among faculty at universities and medical schools in the United States is a matter of growing concern. However, the factors that influence the career choices of underrepresented minority and female postdoctoral researchers have received relatively little attention. Here we report the results of a survey of 1284 postdocs working in the biomedical sciences in the US. Our findings highlight possible reasons why some underrepresented minority and female postdocs choose not to pursue careers in academic research, and suggest interventions that could be taken in the early...
