Webinar Series

The MPOWIR webinar series provides a mechanism for continuing discussion and advice aimed at scientists who have moved from postdoctoral positions into the early stages of a longer-term position. While topics chosen are particularly relevant to early career participants, participation is open to anyone at any career stage, regardless of gender.

Webinars help to fill gaps in the resources and support available to independent researchers at different institutions. Two webinars per year focus on pressing early- to mid-career topics. The webinars begin with a brief presentation by panelists on the selected topic, followed by an open discussion with all participants.

Goal: Provide continued support to “graduated” MPOWIR participants and expand our gender-neutral offerings by providing a venue for idea sharing and open discussion on pressing early career topics.

Format: Webinars will open with a 20 minute presentation, followed by questions and discussion.

Who: All career stages and genders.

The next webinar was hosted on May 6, 2019 at 1:00pm EDT/10:00am PDT and will focusing on ‘Career paths in the commercial sector‘.
