“A Day in the Life of…” Upcoming Series on Career Options for Scientists

CapitolSo, just what does a science policy analyst do every day? A science museum exhibits coordinator? A VP of drug development? OITE aims to answer these questions via an interactive, online chat series this fall.
The series will be held from 12:00 – 1:00 pm every third Thursday from September through December, which includes: Sept. 16, Oct. 21, Nov. 18, and Dec. 16.
Topics covered will include careers in science policy, science writing, drug development in industry, and science education.
Trainees at every stage are welcome to participate and are encouraged to bring questions to our “speakers” during the live chats. After each discussion, the transcript of the entire chat will be posted on this site.
To kick off the series, we will explore the work of a science policy analyst.
