Event Summary

Managing Your Relationship with Your Supervisor

In this presentation, we presented strategies for grad students and postdocs to use in order to best manage their relationships with their supervisors. This included advice on choosing a postdoc position, establishing goals and expectations with your adviser, day-to-day communication techniques, and what to do when problems arise. The session concluded with a discussion of case studies based on questions posted on the Science Careers Forum.

Postacademic Ph.D. Careers

The majority of PhD. career paths lead to jobs outside of academia especially during these challenging economic times. SACNAS values leaders in all occupations and so this panel presented an opportunity for attendees to network with professionals in the careers of science writing, industrial management, and nonprofit realms.
