Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology 2016 Postdoctoral Preparation Institute

Modified: March 15, 2016

The Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology (FASEB) is sponsoring the 2016 Postdoctoral Preparation Institute (2016 PPI) on June 2-3, 2016 at the Bethesda North Marriott Hotel & Conference Center in Bethesda, MD.

The 2016 PPI is intended to bring together postdoctoral investigators who will soon be seeking their first independent positions. A key objective of the 2016 PPI is to provide insights about the various career pathways PhD-trained scientists may consider as they prepare to transition into independent careers in the biomedical research workforce. The broad landscape of career opportunities includes areas such as science policy, science writing, intellectual property law and patents, industry, consulting and entrepreneurship, academic research/teaching, science education, nonprofit sector and government.

The 2016 PPI will provide a range of information and resources which postdocs will need in order to make a successful transition to independence, including making the right career choice, finding the right institutional fit, applying for a position, succeeding in the job interview and seminar, negotiating a startup package, networking and forming collaborations, and balancing research with many other commitments.

The 2016 PPI seminar is geared towards 5th year PhD students, new assistant professors (within 1 year) and postdoctoral fellows engaged in science/research and are within 12-18 months of completing their training. Travel awards (up to a maximum of $1,500) will be provided for all eligible and selected applicants. Additional information and application forms can be found here.
