The American Society for Investigative Pathology (ASIP) is pleased to be collaborating with The Histochemical Society (HCS) and the American Society for Matrix Biology (ASMB) for a series of career development e-Symposia. On June 29, we will focus on the daunting process of navigating from the early career to the mid-career phase in academia. We will discuss how to prepare for promotion and achieve it.
Topics will include:
• Mental resilience
• Dealing with the uncertainties of unstructured timelines of promotion
• How to staff and manage your lab
• How to know you have done "enough" to advance to the next level
• How to see yourself as worthy of a promotion
In addition, we will have the hard conversation about when to have kids if so desired, and what to do when your "plan" changes. We will also discuss what’s in store for folks in the mid-career stage of academia including new expectations and the committee tax often paid.
Our panelists hail from HCS, ASMB, and ASIP in this our first tri-society webinar! Our panelists are both folks who have recently navigated the transition to associate professor and experienced senior academic decision-makers and letter writers. Come join us to share your experience and lessons learned and/or discuss your concerns and gain guidance.
