Career Planning and Development for Early-Career Scientists

Citation:

WOLF, D. Career Planning and Development for Early-Career Scientists. Presented at Society of Toxicology, Salt Lake City, UT, March 07 - 11, 2010.

Description:

Early career development can be looked at as being of two major phases. The first phase is the formal educational process leading to an awarded degree, postdoctoral training, and potentially formal certification in a scientific discipline. The second phase is the informal education of becoming successful in the business of science.

Purpose/Objective:

the most important thing to remember is that you must take control of your career; you need to seek out mentors as well as mentor others, ask for training in areas you desire to understand, and say yes to opportunities as they arise.
