NIH Career Symposium

The Annual NIH Career Symposium aims to highlight the diversity of career choices available to your generation of biomedical researchers.  Whether you are a new graduate student, postdoc, or clinical fellow just beginning to consider career options or a senior student/fellow ready to look for a job, the NIH Career Symposium is for you.

14th Annual NIH Career Symposium, May 3-7, 2021

In 2021 the focus is on networking opportunities. We will host a series of “rooms” for career conversations slots with one or two speakers in a 45-minute time slot. Multiple rooms with speakers in similar career paths will run concurrently. For example, research positions in industry would have multiple rooms going at once. Our goal is that each room will have no more than 15 participants, giving every attendee ample time to connect with a professional. Participants will have the ability to move through the “rooms” as they like, meeting a speaker, asking questions, or even just listening in to see if a particular career path looks enticing. NOTE: What is said in these rooms will NOT be recorded. (A collection of material from past events, including YouTube videos from the virtual 2020 edition, are available below)
