IAP 2004 Activity

Taking the Next Step in Academic Science
Biology Postdoc Association
No enrollment limit, no advance sign up
Participants welcome at individual sessions (series)
Prereq: none

The academic path is well laid out and a familiar one, but it is sometimes rocky. These sessions focus on the transitions we make as our careers progress and provide professional advice for undergraduate students, graduate students and post-doctoral fellows pursuing academic research careers. The discussions will be informal with plenty of opportunity for questions. For a more detailed description about each of the talks, please see
