Beyond the Bench: Careers in Grants Administration for Ph.D.-level Scientists
Director, Tissue Engineering and Regenerative Medicine
National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering (NIBIB)
National Institutes of Health (NIH)
Most Ph.D.s start their careers at the lab bench, and plan for a decade’s long journey doing cutting edge research. But we are not all cut out for that fate. Pre-doctoral training cultivates skills of enormous value across many professional paths. A Ph.D. with post-doctoral training empowers one in advanced decision making, time management, data crunching, and assessment of the state-of-the-art, moving comfortably between the tactical and the strategic, and much more. Do you have what it takes to amass your considerable knowledge of science and make the move away from the laboratory and into the office, the press room, or the statehouse? This presentation will give you a start on that exploration.
