Choosing a Carreer Path
Nahlik, A. AND M. Kentula. Choosing a Carreer Path. Presented at Joint Aquatic Sciences Meeting, Portland, OR, May 18 - 23, 2014.
Having graduated with a PhD in wetland ecology and recently completed a post-doctorate fellowship with Mary E. Kentula at the US Environmental Protection Agency, I have a lot of practical advice for undergraduates who are interested in pursuing a career in aquatic sciences. The goal of this informational presentation is to provide students with guidance of how to decide on a career path, what to consider with applying to graduate school, and to highlight some of the established and emerging leaders in the field of wetland science. I will also share some of my personal experiences and discuss the skills I’ve found particularly useful in conducting wetland research in academic and government settings.
This session is focused on providing career oriented information on aquatic sciences. The presentation focuses on wetland science. Options important for those interested in a career in wetland science are discussed.
