If you will be attending Immunology 2017, please plan to stop by the graduate student table at the Careers Roundtable session on May 13th! Dr. Harlan Jones from National Research Mentoring Network -NRMN will be co-hosting this table to facilitate a discussion with graduate students on finding a mentor and preparing for postdoc training.
AAI-MAC Careers Roundtable Session Description: Networking skills that have never been more crucial to ensure success for early/mid-career scientists, including those traditionally under-represented in biomedical research. At the roundtable, take advantage of the opportunity to meet in small-group format with accomplished, senior immunologists to hear how they have handled the career challenges you now face and learn what they believe will work for you today. Then practice networking in a relaxed environment offering a structured networking exercise and personalized feedback on communicating your scientific interests/objectives most effectively.
