Post-Docs Conference

For Post-Doctoral Fellows at Federal Labs

Its purposes are to integrate the post-docs into our community by
1) helping them find jobs, and
2) helping them understand what is required for them to transfer into the workforce at large, be it to a large firm, a start-up, or as an entrepreneur.
The conference will have several tracks:
1) how to stay in the area and remain a scientist,
2) how to take science and move it into commercial settings, and
3) how to go into “non-traditional” jobs with the government or NGO’s that are not pure science jobs, but require a science background.
