Careers in Science and beyond workshop

The days 20 and 21 of October there is a fantastic workshop on Careers in Science and beyond at the University of Porto in Portugal.

It has been organized by a committee of postdocs and the program is excellent. They are sold out, but check it out if you are also a PhD student or postdoc at a university and want to get some ideas for a career workshop.

I'll be a speaker on the second day so if any of those attending reads this forum come and say Hi!

I will be recommending this forum as one of the key tools you should have in your career toolbox as a scientist. My two career transitions, first from academia to industry and then out of industry, would have been a lot harder if I hadn't been participation in this forum for the last 13 years (!). And I'm proud to see how the forum keeps helping scientists make those difficult transitions as Katherine just shared with us.

Thanks for posting that information Ana. I sure wish I could be there -- Porto is one of my favorite cities in the world, and there is such a wealth of scientific talent in Portugal just waiting to be tapped.

Good luck at your talk,

Dave Jensen
