Postdocs are faced with many obstacles in their pursuit of being an independent investigator, none more frustrating than getting the most out of their training. Jim Gould, director of the HMS/HSDM Office of Postdoctoral Fellows will lay out strategies for choosing the right research environment to thrive as a postdoc as well as planning, and executing, a successful postdoc tenure. Designed for current and future postdocs, the session will cover what you need know, and do, to efficiently advance in your early research career.
The BWH Postdoc Association, HMS/HSDM Postdoc Association and BWH Office for Research Careers welcome postdocs to attend this networking/social event. Take a break and join your colleagues to expand your network and socialize in an informal setting. Wine, beer and soft drinks -- as well as cheese, crackers and fruit -- will be provided!
