EB 2014 Career Symposium - Conscious Choice and Serendipity in Your Career Trajectory

Career trajectories in physiology are often a consequence of conscious choices as well as unique, unexpected opportunities. Young scientists may be unaware of the diverse career trajectories or the skill development required for success in these jobs. This symposium brings together scientists working in industry, government, education and consulting to provide students, early career professionals, and mentors an overview of the varying array of scientific career options in physiology. Individuals on the panel share their perspectives on: 1) job functions and responsibilities; 2) career path trajectories; 3) skill sets, degrees and training opportunities that will improve (or perhaps limit) one’s chances of success; and 4) expectations and potential obstacles. Symposium format includes a brief career trajectory description from panel participants, followed by a discussion / question-answer period and a closing breakout session to meet and interact with the speakers.
