    First Day of Post-Doc

    My first day of work will be in a lab I have never seen, and I have no idea what to expect. How do you start a new job during a pandemic? If you followed my dissertation writing blog, you know I graduated at the very beginning of the COVID-19 quarantine. Luckily, I was still able to get a post-doc position during this time. Unfortunately, because of the pandemic I wasn't able to do an on site interview, so while the people were great when I met them at the SfN conference, I don't really know much about this position. Anyone have any advice? What is it like to transition from grad student to post-doc? Has anyone else had new people recently join their lab? How have you been able to train them with most labs working at limited capacity? Any advice is appreciated.
  2. On March 30 at 2 p.m. EDT, Maria Neimark Geffen, PhD, will answer your questions about how to advance in your academic career and excel in neuroscience. An assistant professor of otorhinolaryngology at the University of Pennsylvania Perelman School of Medicine, Neimark Geffen has built up her first laboratory over the past five years. By learning new skills and approaches, she has managed to balance her professional and personal priorities. She discussed her story at Neuroscience 2015 during the Celebration of Women in Neuroscience luncheon, which you can watch here. In this Q&A, you’ll have the opportunity to seek advice on what can help you, too, achieve your goals. So get your questions ready and post them here on March 30 at 2 p.m. to take part in this members-only chat! If you can’t join, post your questions now and check back after for an answer.
  3. Here is an interesting article I read on Science Careers that mirrors a lot of my own concerns and concerns of graduate students I know. However, it seems like in academia it is not a topic that is openly discussed (for whatever reason). Science – 30 Jun 17 Extraordinary and poor Ever since I was in high school, I have dreamed of becoming a neuroscientist. Now a postdoc in a cutting-edge neuroimaging lab, I am proud of the work I have done so far and excited that I am very close to making that dream career a reality. Yet,... Please let me know your thoughts and comments.
  4. As I near the end of my time in graduate school, I am contemplating my options for the future. In addition to academia and industry, I am considering alternative routes such as IP law and technology transfer. I am interested to know your plans after you graduate. Have you decided yet? -Grace Student Neuronline Contributor
  5. With different opportunities and environments in academia, industry, and government, how can neuroscientists determine the right career path for them?
