Interesting Workshop from AAAS Careers: Careers Away from the Bench

Hi all, just wanted to let anyone in the Baltimore area know about this workshop. I have no idea about the specifics but if  I were in the area I’d definitely attend. As a beneficiary of a nontraditional career track, I’d love to see what else is out there and who is doing what! And, I’ve noticed that it’s being offered at the Society of Toxicology Meeting of all places.  Years ago I used to attend the SOT meetings, and found them to be the most traditional and stuffy of science meetings (i.e. men in suits) though I suspect at the very least there are now more women in suits – or at least power dresses, and maybe even a few in “nontraditional” dress as well!

Careers Away from the Bench Workshop

Could you be missing out on an exciting and rewarding career outside of academic/industrial research? Increasingly, Ph.D.-level scientists are becoming aware of other career opportunities beyond bench research. Come to this workshop to consider what your own career path in these so-called “nontraditional” areas might look like. We’ll discuss the types of alternative careers available, how to parlay your current skills and values into a new area, ways to research career options, and how to develop the skills you might need.
