Navigating the Research Enterprise

Modified: January 24, 2017

Navigating the Research Enterprise – Now Every 2nd and 4th Monday of the month!

This annual seminar series takes place on the 2nd and 4th Mondays of every month from October through March. It is offered in an effort to provide support for all early career faculty members and postdoctoral fellows at Northwestern who have protected time for investigation to focus on developing the key skills young scientists require in order to progress beyond just doing good research.

Leadership for this course is provided by Rick McGee, PhD, Associate Dean for Faculty Recruitment and Professional Development, Professor of Medical Education; and Bill Lowe, MD, Vice Dean for Academic Affairs, Professor of Medicine-Endocrinology. The intent of this course is to provide an introduction to such issues as finding sources of research funds, writing effective grants, building a network of professional colleagues, and more.

Please log in or become a NUCATS member to RSVP.
