Transitioning from the Bench to a Career in Science Policy
This webinar will expose participants to science policy career opportunities and the skills needed to be successful in these careers. Participants will hear from a panel of scientists who successfully secured science policy positions in higher education, consulting, and government. Panelists will share their transition stories and explain the importance of science communication and policy analysis skills when collaborating with non-scientists. Attendees will leave the workshop with an increased understanding of career options that connect science to society and the skillset common to success in these careers.
After this webinar, participants will be able to:
- Identify science policy career opportunities in higher education, government, and consulting
- Describe how science communication and policy analysis skills can be used to impact society
- Explain how to leverage these skills to effectively work with federal, private, and nonprofit clients and collaborators
- Gain insight into career transition strategies and opportunities
