Being a postdoc is not easy and there can be many challenges along the way. This breakfast presents an opportunity for postdoctoral Annual Meeting attendees to meet and discuss the issues they face in their current career stage. Attendees will have the opportunity to hear and learn from speakers who will share their jour- neys, experiences, and success stories. The World Outside the Lab 1:00 pm –2:30 pm Have you started thinking about the next career step? Are you wondering if you can apply your academic skills in industry? Or what skills outside of academia you may bring to the lab? Join us to explore career options in consulting, industry, and academia. Panelists with science back- grounds, now involved in a wide variety of careers, will share their personal expe- riences and answer questions from the audience. Teaching Science Like We Do Science 2:00 pm –4:00 pm This interactive, hands-on workshop focuses on practice-applicable, easy-to- use strategies and tools that educators at any level of biophysical science education can use to assess what their students take away from their teaching, and where changes to their educational methods might be appropriate.
Rohit Pappu (Washington University in St. Louis, USA), Gary Karpen (University of California, Berkeley, USA), and Alexandra Zidovska (New York University, USA) will teach on this exciting topic in the field of biophysics. More details to come soon. Speed Networking 4:30 pm –6:30 pm Enjoy refreshments while connecting with biophysicists in an informal environment. Space is limited and pre-registration is recommended to ensure a spot. Register today through the BPS Annual Meeting website! Tuesday, February 22 Founding, Establishing, and Maintain- ing a Research Laboratory at Primarily Undergraduate Institutions 12:00 pm –1:30 pm Get guidance on founding, establishing, and maintaining a research laboratory at Primarily Undergraduate Institutions (PUIs).
