For many scientific researchers, even those with an international background, research careers outside the US remain terra incognita. How do other research systems compare to those in North America? How do I find and pursue opportunities in a foreign context? What resources are available to help me explore, plan, and undertake a move overseas? What are the most critical issues to consider when planning this move? While planning an overseas move can be daunting, such careers offer unique and rewarding opportunities that can boost careers and enhance research outcomes. In addition, global opportunities are a path to funding or structural support for many research endeavors within the US, and collaborative research with international researchers and institutions can be an enriching professional and personal experience. This workshop seeks to answer questions and offer advice on how to prepare for success outside the US research ecosystem.

This event is free and intended for Postdoctoral Scholars.

Capacity is limited to 40 people. Deadline to RSVP is Nov. 11, 2019.

Light Refreshments Provided.
