Event Description

This is a two and a half day in-person only workshop. You only need to register once, however, all sessions are required.

SciPhD is run by Human Workflows, LLC (http://sciphd.com/) and helps trainees assess their current skill set, express it in business-friendly language as well as recognize/fill skill gaps in areas such as communication, leadership, team building, negotiation and project management. This workshop focuses on 24 essential core competencies valued by industry and business, relates those competencies to activities and behaviors commonly experienced by academic scientists through the scientific method, and demonstrates how those competencies work together to form the operational competencies that are essential in business.  These transition business competencies can also be applied by academic and government scientists in running their laboratories.  SciPhD is a very interactive and hands-on exposure to these concepts with real action items to take away from the workshop.  Throughout the program, students and postdocs will experience at least four behavioral-based interview experiences in which they will play the role of the candidate and the interviewer.

Topics include:

The Business of Science
Successful Communications as a Scientist
Six Leadership Styles
Developing Your People
Negotiation and Finance
Building Effective Teams
Strategic Project Management for Scientists
Applying What You've Learned
