Career Options Seminar – Dave Crotty from CSHL Protocols, Fri Mar 16 @ 2pm
What are the odds that you will follow your PI’s path in becoming a tenured faculty? Yep, less than 25%.
Would it make sense to focus your entire PhD career on that 1 in 4 shot (assuming those odds don’t deteriorate once you get your shot at a tenured track faculty position)?
Of course not.
Therefore we offer your an insight in the various career options there are for people with a PhD in molecular biology (and related fields), so you can make an educated plan for your own future. You can have plans for the day after your finish your PhD or your postdoc.

Served as Commissioning Editor for Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory Press in book acquisitions. Currently running CSH Protocols, an online biology methods journal / database.
Whatever you study, this will be a good talk to attend because Sharon will provide insight into how she succeeded in her career using the sheepskin we are all working for.
