NIH Career Roundtable Event

May 12, 2022 | 11:00AM EDT | 3:00PM UTC

As part of our commitment to support and train the next generation of scientific leaders, Keystone Symposia hosts Career Roundtables at in-person events and through our virtual platform. These workshops create a forum for field leaders to provide their unique perspectives on career development, professional pitfalls and the breadth of scientific opportunities available to support trainee scientists.

In this Career Roundtable ePanel we will explore career opportunities available at the National Institutes of Health. Representatives from diverse positions will share their experiences and insights, from those who run their own laboratories at the NIH, to those in directorship positions or communications roles.

Join us for this FREE ePanel event to discover what it is like to work at the NIH, and find out:

  • How does working for the government differ from working in academia or industry?
  • What is attractive about working for the government, and what is challenging?
  • What qualities or interests might be suited for government jobs?
  • How might a student know they would be a good fit for the NIH?
  • What is the NIH looking for when hiring?

Don’t miss your chance to ask our panelists your questions during the live Q&A! Register now to reserve your spot.
