About the webinar

We will be discussing a variety of topics related to both fields: Job search, interview process, negotiations, job responsibilities and more. If you are a trainee, unsure about whether you want to stay in academia or take a chance at industry, this is a safe space for you to ask questions and discuss with scientists who went through the same process. We will be hosting a diverse panel of speakers at different career stages, who have made their decisions to stay in Academia or move to industry. The panelists will speak about their own personal experiences navigating career choices and the steps to achieve their objectives.

Our panelists are:

  • Brenna Fearey, PhD: Senior Application Scientist, LifeCanvas Technologies (USA).
  • Richard McCosh, PhD: Assistant Professor, Colorado State University (USA).
  • Santiago Orrillo, PhD: Postdoctoral Fellow, CONICET (Argentina).
  • Andrea Silva-Gotay, PhD: Medical Writer and Consultant, Whitsell Innovations, Inc (USA).
  • Evguenia Alechine, PhD, ELS: Science Communication Specialist, Freelance (Argentina).
