If so, this seminar on "Careers in Teaching" is for you! This seminar will highlight teaching options available in diverse educational environments ranging from prestigious academic research institutions to local high schools and provide information for scientists interested in teaching. The panelists will share information about what their responsibilities are, what types of positions exist, and how you can prepare for achieving similar positions. After short introductions and presentations, the floor will be open for a question and answer session with the panelists.
