Invitation to 2021 Academic Lab Management + Leadership Symposium

Posted by on Friday, January 8, 2021 in Announcements .

Academic Laboratory Management & Leadership Symposium – Feb 23 & 25 and March 2 & March 4

The course is organized by postdoc career development administrators from The Torrey Pines Training Consortium (TPTC), which members include Salk Institute for Biological Studies, Sanford Burnham Prebys Medical Discovery Institute (SBP), Scripps Research and UC San Diego.

The course is based on the acclaimed Burroughs Wellcome Fund/Howard Hughes Medical Institute course in scientific management and similar intensive programs developed across the country. The course is designed to equip postdocs and junior faculty in the biomedical, physical and life sciences from the Torrey Pines Mesa institutes with the professional competencies to lead innovative and productive research programs. However, graduate students and research staff may also find this training informative and may attend.

Session will take place each event day from 10:00 am-1:30pm (PT). Visit the ALMLS website for faculty speaker biographies.
