Thinking outside the lab: Finding a fulfilling non-research career, April 8, 2014 - 12:00pm - 1:00pm, ET

Wondering where can a Ph.D. take you today? Is there life beyond the bench? Absolutely! There are now more non-research fields for STEM professionals than ever before—in private industry, public policy, government, nonprofit, journalism, grants management, analytics, and a host of emerging career paths. Learn what mix of skills, experience and preparation you need to leap from the lab into a satisfying non-research career:

On April 8 at 12 noon ET, join Science Editor-in-Chief Marcia McNutt; Lori Conlin, director for the NIH Office of Postdoctoral Studies; and Anish Goel, former AAAS S&T Policy Fellow and Director of Market Analysis and Geopolitical Affairs at Boeing, for a webinar on "Thinking outside the lab: Finding a fulfilling non-research career."

Take this opportunity to learn firsthand from accomplished Ph.D.s who have successfully navigated a career outside of the research realm. They'll talk about their own experiences, examine a range of career options open to STEM professionals across different sectors, and discuss the analytic, communication and teamworking skills needed for these kinds of roles.
