Event description

Description

Interested in a faculty position at a research-intensive (R1) institution? Want to hear the personal experiences of UCSF postdoctoral scholars that recently accepted faculty positions at R1 institutions?

Join us for an afternoon with three UCSF postdoctoral scholars who are finishing up their postdoc and starting their faculty positions at R1 institutions in 2018.


Panelists:

Elizabeth Rose Mayeda, PhD, MPH, UCSF postdoctoral scholar, Epidemiology

Lukasz Bugaj, PhD, UCSF postdoctoral fellow, Cellular and Molecular Pharmacology

Xiaolei Su, PhD, UCSF postdoctoral scholar, Cell Biology


Discussion Topics:

Elizabeth Rose, Lukasz, and Xiaolei will share their personal experience around 4 main topics, listed below.

  1. What strategy they had as a postdoc to prepare for a faculty position.

  2. How they tailored their application materials to different institutions.

  3. What tips and successful practices they would like to share for getting hired at research-intensive institutions.

  4. What the interview and negotiation process was like for them.


About the panelists:

Elizabeth Rose Mayeda received her MPH in Epidemiology from Columbia University and her PhD in Epidemiology and Translational Science from UCSF. She is currently a postdoc at UCSF with Maria Glymour’s research group, where she studies social inequalities in Alzheimer’s disease and statistical methods to strengthen causal inference in Alzheimer’s disease research. In January, she will begin a position as a tenure-track assistant professor of epidemiology at UCLA.

Lukasz Bugaj earned his PhD at Berkeley in David Shaffer's lab, where he engineered photoactivatible signaling proteins. As a postdoc in Wendell Lim's lab, he currently studies cell signaling dynamics and their role in cancer. Lukasz will start as an Assistant Professor of Bioengineering at the University of Pennsylvania in January 2018.

Xiaolei Su received his PhD from Harvard where he studied the mechanism of cell division. He is currently a postdoc at UCSF in Ron Vale's lab, where he studies T cell activation. Next spring he will begin a position as an Assistant Professor of Cell Biology at Yale School of Medicine.
