||There are several unknowns when it comes to finding a job in academia or industry that fits one’s skills and passions. Be it students seeking admissions, or jobs, or post-doctoral fellows seeking faculty positions.
This symposium will help the researchers (graduate and post-doctoral) by providing guidelines on different aspects of navigating career paths. Technical instructions on job application steps for both academia and industry will be presented. Insights on successful application from agencies, industry, program directors, and professionals from national labs, will be provided.
Direct interaction with the attendees of the symposium will be promoted in panel discussions around
(1). early career mobility, addressing issues such as: should I move? When is it a good time? What issues am I likely to face?
(2). industry versus academia: should I do a postdoc? How to shift from industry to academia and vice versa? Is my profile more suited for industry or academia?
An informal networking session will be organized at the end of the symposium.
