Friday, June 16, 2023
1 to 2 p.m. ET
See above for registration information
Free for GSA members; $25 for non members

What career options are out there for individuals interested in aging research? How can I use my training to land a position outside of the traditional university setting? Join the GSA Health Sciences Mentorship Workgroup as we host a panel discussion with GSA members in government, non-profit, and private industry positions. Speakers will share about their career trajectories, differences between university and non-university careers, and specific skills, training, or networking experiences that may be useful to land a non-academic job. The discussion will be moderated by Dr. Kyle Moored (Assistant Scientist, Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health) and Dr. Tai-Te Su (Postdoctoral Researcher, University of Toronto) and include time for audience questions. We hope this webinar will be especially useful for early career researchers and individuals considering careers outside of a traditional academic setting.
