ANNOUNCEMENTS


1. Boston Postdoctoral Association (BPDA) Symposium on Careers and Collaboration in Science on June 8-10 -

The BPDA symposium will be focused on strategies to nurture academia-industry collaborations and to advance scientific research and professional development. Many postdoctoral trainees have strong research, teaching, and interpersonal skills; however, they lack the ability to leverage these skills to prepare for careers in either academic tenure-track positions or industry. As research becomes increasingly multidisciplinary and technologically complex, collaborative research among diverse experts is often required to address important scientific questions. This symposium will be a unique platform for young investigators to establish new relationships and gain new perspectives.

Dates: June 8-10, 2018
Location: Broad Institute, Cambridge, MA
