EB 2015 Trainee Symposium - Scientists as Supervisors: Hiring, Firing, and Beyond

Supervisory and management skills are essential for scientistsÂ’ success both inside and outside of research. These skills are necessary to effectively manage projects, resources and personnel, and to create a work environment that fosters efficiency and productivity. Indeed, the National Postdoctoral Association declared that leadership and management skills are one of the core competencies necessary for postdoctoral fellows to succeed. Despite the acknowledged importance of supervisory skills, most trainees do not receive formal training in personnel, financial, or project management. This symposium addresses these issues in supervision and management, and brings attention to the critical importance of implementing this training in current trainee programs across the country. The overall objectives of the symposium are to provide information for trainees on the following: 1) hiring and firing (finding the right employees), 2) resource and personnel management, and 3) conflict resolution. The presentations will be followed by a panel discussion.
