During last year's eSymposia series, each meeting featured a career roundtable with field leaders offering trainees advice on how to choose a thesis lab, finding mentors, balance work and family life, choosing academic vs. industry careers, and more. The workshops were such a success, that now we are releasing some of these sessions for open access viewing to reach broader audiences around the world with these career-shaping insights.
Watch the videos below for words of wisdom from top scientists spanning academic, industry and government backgrounds, and fast-track your path to success!
We thank all the panelists that contributed to these sessions, for dedicating their time and effort to guide the next-generation of research leaders, and for approving the open-access release of these videos. The views expressed during these panels are those of the panelists, and do not reflect the views of their organizations.
