Careers Away from the Bench

On June 9, 2009, we participated in a two-part workshop on Careers Away from the Bench at Johns Hopkins University. Brianna Blaser presented on career options outside of research and then a panel of scientists in nonresearch careers talked about their experiences.

Event Summary

Could you be missing out on an exciting and rewarding career outside of academic or industrial research? Increasingly, Ph.D.-level scientists are becoming aware of other career opportunities beyond bench research. This workshop considered what a career path in these so-called "nontraditional" areas might look like. We discussed the types of alternative careers available, parlaying your current skills and values into a new area, ways to research career options, and developing needed skills.
