FelCom - Career Development

The goal of the Career Development Subcommittee is to educate NIH fellows regarding the career opportunities that are available within and outside of the NIH system. Through a year long seminar series, this subcommittee provides fellows with information regarding survival skills for their post-graduate work as well as skills needed for making the transition from training positions to various professional areas of interest. It is also the intent of the subcommittee to provide extensive information regarding varied career interests that include the pursuit of academic tenure-track positions, industrial positions, administrative positions, and alternative careers. This subcommittee also assists other subcommittees and NIH entities that involve or require career development for NIH fellows.

If you would like more information about the subcommittee or would like to become a member, please contact the subcommittee co-chairs listed below:

Amit Singh, NCI
