The Program in Graduate Education (PGE) at Harvard Medical School (HMS) is pleased to host this session showcasing the growing array of post-docs available for life sciences trainees looking for training in the areas of teaching, education research, higher ed administration and science policy. These post-docs exist in varying forms, some preparing trainees for careers combining scientific research with work in these areas of expertise.
This session will feature professionals who are hiring managers, mentors or past participants in these "non-traditional post-docs". Attendees will have the chance to learn about the process of applying to these post-doctoral fellowships (including posted and upcoming openings), the value of these training programs, what to expect from these experiences, and the career trajectories of their alumni.
