Are you interested to hear about inspiring career perspectives?

The Berkeley Postdoctoral Association is pleased to invite you to our Career Pathways seminar series designed to expose you to unique career paths and to connect you with people who are working in exciting fields outside of academia.

Come join us for a lively discussion on careers pathways in scientific publishing.

We have an inspiring talk from Dr. Meghan Byrne, Senior Editor, PLOS, on career perspectives for you.


Dr. Meghan Byrne, Senior Editor, PLOS, has a background in medical writing and in molecular biology, biochemistry, and cell biology. She became hooked on science research as an undergrad at Williams College, where she did a senior project on cell division in yeast. She received her PhD from the University of California, San Francisco, where she investigated how cells sense and adapt to changing environmental conditions. She then worked as a postdoctoral scholar at UC Berkeley, studying magnetic bacteria, some of which she gathered from a creek running through the Berkeley campus. Before joining PLOS, Meg worked as a medical writer at newMentor, a health information services company, where she learned to appreciate the complexities of clinical research. Meg has been a fan of PLOS and open access publishing since her early years in graduate school.
