Successfully Launching Your Scientific Career:
A Career Development Workshop

Vanderbilt University Medical Center
Light Hall
March 7-8, 2007

The Office of Biomedical Research Education and Training at Vanderbilt University is pleased to present the Successfully Launching Your Scientific Career: A Career Development Workshop on March 7-8, 2007. All postdoctoral fellows, faculty and senior graduate students who are interested in a successful career in scientific research are welcome to attend.

This one-and-a-half day event features presentations by scientists who have successfully navigated the process of landing an academic job and maintaining a fruitful research career. Topics to be addressed include the academic job search, funding strategies, lab management, setting up a new lab, teaching, publishing, and research ethics. Although some of the sessions are specifically directed toward laboratory-based academic scientists, much of the information will also be of use to beginning investigators in government or industry labs.

There is no fee for the workshop, but registration is required. The first 25 people to register will receive a complimentary copy of Making the Right Moves: A Practical Guide to Lab Management for Postdocs and New Faculty. You can pick up your name tag (required for lunch) and registration materials between 7:00-8:00 AM on March 7 in the South Lobby of Light Hall. A continental breakfast will be served. Lunch will be provided on March 7 for people who pre-register for the workshop by February 28.
