EB 2015 Career Symposium - Resilience is Power: Dealing With the Ups and Downs of Your Scientific Career

A career in science is filled with challenges that can often have nothing or little to do with the research itself. These challenges to our “soft skills” begin in graduate school and continue until retirement. What keeps us going in spite of adversity? How can we maintain our enthusiasm for the love of science that drove us to this career? In light of the growing number of challenges for a scientist working in the current economy, the ability to rebound from setbacks and address obstacles becomes ever more important. This session will include experts in the psychology of resilience as well as scientists who can offer advice on adaptability and resilience specific to the discipline. The first speaker will describe the psychology of resilience. Subsequent speakers will explore growing challenges that scientists frequently face and suggest approaches to dealing with them.
