Career Activities at ASM Microbe 2016

Dr. Laura Runyen-Janecky, Professor in the Department of Biology at the University of Richmond provides insight on how students and postdocs can navigate the careers activities at Microbe 2016. Here is what she had to say: Large meetings hosted by the American Society for Microbiology (such as ASM Microbe 2016, which is General Meeting and ICAAC combined) have plentiful opportunities to learn about cutting edge microbial science and to draw ideas and inspiration for one’s own science. What many students and postdocs may be unaware of, however, are the equally exciting opportunities for career exploration and skill development alongside the super scientific discourse that is occurring daily. Whether you are an undergraduate student presenting your research for the first time at a national meeting, a graduate student contemplating future career options, or a postdoc wanting to develop a specific professional skill, ASM Microbe 2016 has just the workshop/session for you. These opportunities exist as full/half-day workshops on June 16, a day before the scientific meeting begins, and in sessions during ASM Microbe 2016 from June 17-20. Registration and cost for workshops are available online and on site, and is separate from the ASM Microbe registration.
