Have you always enjoyed communicating science? Have you ever wondered about a career in scientific writing and editing that goes beyond publishing academic papers? If so, then this seminar is for you. The seminar will explore the diverse opportunities in the area of science editing. The panel includes Ph.D. level scientists who have successfully transitioned into careers in science editing at journals, non-profit organizations, and here at NIH. Fellows will learn how to successfully transition from the bench into the field, what types of jobs are available, and what entry-level requirements are necessary. After short introductions and presentations, the floor will be open for a question and answer session with the panelists. This event is sponsored by FELCOM's Career Development Subcommittee.
