The Program in Graduate Education (PGE) at Harvard Medical School (HMS), in collaboration with the Scientific Citizenship Initiative(SCI) @ HMS, is pleased to host this session showcasing the growing array of post-docs available for lifes sciences trainees looking for training in the areas of teaching, 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.
SciLinkR is a platform for researchers to connect with other scientists passionate about science outreach, to discover opportunities for outreach, and to record public engagement activities to ultimately create a shareable report of their work for professional development purposes.
The use of Individual Development Plans (IDPs) have been widely promoted to support graduate student professional development. IDPs are structured frameworks to consider short-term and long-term career plans, laying a foundation for meaningful goal-setting. This workshop will introduce trainees to knowledge and skills to inform IDP discussions. It is open to all trainees, including master's and doctoral students.
