Thank You.

Conducting research in graduate school or during a postdoc can be a humbling experience. Long hours, low salary, tedious experiments, and lack of support can wear down brilliant and innovative minds. In this workshop presented by Dr. Thomas Magaldi, you will learn to recognize common mistakes that often derail the career paths of students and postdocs. These common mistakes often include poor time management, failure to reward accomplishments, succumbing to pessimism, and failure to take risks. By recognizing these mistakes, you will learn to maximize your potential and increase your career prospects.
