Transform science into speaking

You've done the research, you've worked in the lab, you've achieved the technical expertise. Can you translate it into a conversation? Can you discuss it with non-scientists? Can you explain it concisely? Join this workshop to understand how to communicate effectively so you can share your scientific research with more people. The skills you learn and practice will prepare you for interviews, pitches, and networking events. Gain confidence as you learn to transform science into speaking!

Why do I need a personal website and how can I make one?

Personal academic websites are an essential tool for sharing your research and marketing yourself as an academic. Increasingly during the faculty application process hiring committees expect to see your personal website in addition to your standard documents. This workshop will focus on the ins and outs of creating content for your website, including how to frame your research interests, and offer feedback on existing websites. Faculty who have experience building websites and regularly look at them to assess potential colleges will join us. So come with an idea or nothing at all, and by the end, you should have the tools to build a great website.

Consulting Workshop

The BPDA has invited consultants from two top leading Boston life science consultancies, which seek out advanced degree candidates (i.e. PhD, MD, including current graduate students and postdoctoral research fellows. They will share their perspectives on what consulting entails, what it is like to transition from an academic setting to consulting, and what their respective firms look for in potential candidates. The sessions will consist of consultants presenting information on their firms followed by moderated Q&A and audience questions
