Social skills for academics

BiteSize Bio is blog that focusses on anything that has to do with biology and in specific molecular biology. They have over 50 different authors, all with experience in (molecular) biology, including Jode Plank, a post-doc in the lab of Stephen Kowalczykowski  here at Davis.

Recently they held a web seminar on soft skills (first 21 min or so) held by Priya Nalkur-Pai. It is always good to be reminded that being a scientist not only means being good at thinking of great questions and designing experiments to answer these questions, but also that we have to interact with other people. And interacting with other people means knowing how to do deal with other people. Not something scientists are particularly well-known for.
