Postdoctoral ASPIRE Café for Career Planning, changes for Spring 2015

Logo no background.pngAttention Postdoctoral Fellows,

If you have not already had the chance to attend, please come for coffee and pastries to a Postdoctoral ASPIRE Café for Career Planning session to learn more about the Vanderbilt ASPIRE Program and to explore topics in career development and professionalism. 

New for 2015! 

The 4th Thursday of the month will feature a content-driven session in which a particular area of career development or professionalism will be discussed in an informal setting. Since this topic will change each month, feel free to attend this 4th Thursday meeting as often as you wish.   

Please join us for our next meeting where we will be discussing:

Finding Funding: An Introduction to Community of Science’s PIVOT

Come learn about how to put a Vanderbilt resource, PIVOT, to work for you in finding funding for your endeavors.  Learn how to establish your personal profile, do funding searches, set up saved searches to receive weekly updates, use PIVOT to manage your applications and more!

Thursday, January 22nd
350 Light Hall

ASPIRE Café sessions are led by Ashley Brady, PhD., ASPIRE Program Manager, and are offered on the 2nd and 4th Thursday of each month at 9am in 350 Light Hall.

The 2nd Thursday of the month serves as an "orientation"  to ASPIRE by providing an overview of the program and helping postdoctoral fellows find out how to become involved in ASPIRE activities.  This is the format followed for the fall 2014 sessions and should only be attended once, as the content will be repeated each month.
