March 12-13, 2012 2012 Workshop for Postdocs Transitioning to Independent Positions About the Workshop This workshop is intended to bring together approximately 150 postdoctoral investigators who will soon be seeking their first independent positions. While the transition to independence is a challenge for all postdocs, young investigators who are members of groups that are underrepresented in the biomedical or behavioral sciences may have an especially difficult time finding and establishing themselves in their first independent positions. For this reason, emphasis will be placed on members of these groups. The goal of the workshop is to cover a broad range of topics that postdocs will need to make a successful transition to independence, including making the right career choice, finding the right institutional fit, applying for a position, succeeding in the job interview and seminar, negotiating a start up package, establishing a lab, finding a mentor, networking and forming collaborations, applying for and getting a grant, undergoing the tenure process, teaching, and balancing research with many other commitments. Although the focus is on academic positions, the participants will also have an opportunity to learn about other scientific careers.
