The NextGen Association for Postdocs and Graduate Students and the Office of Academic Affairs are pleased to announce the inaugural Broad Institute Trainee Retreat: The New Frontier.

The retreat will take place on March 7, 2018 from 9:30-6:00 PM

The Starr Center, 185 Cambridge Street, Boston, followed by a post-retreat celebration at Harvard Gardens, 316 Cambridge Street.

Focus of the retreat
Science is changing rapidly and the opportunities offered to doctorates are numerous. The types of scientists, the way of doing science, the collaborations between industry and academia and the career paths have changed drastically in the recent years. Therefore, the goal of this retreat is to demonstrate to you all the potential of your graduate studies and help you find the career path that suits you the best.

Featured plenary speakers are:

Adam Ruben, PhD, Molecular Biologist and Author of “Surviving Your Stupid Decision to go to Grad School,” host of “Outrageous Acts of Science” on the Science Channel

Aine Hanly, PhD, Vice President, Drug Substance Technologies, and Site Head, Amgen, Cambridge

In addition, you will have the opportunity to hear scientific talks from Broad trainees, engage with industry professionals at a facilitated science discussion, attend workshops aimed at developing essential transferable skills and learn about non-academic career paths at our organized panel discussions.

All postdocs and graduate students are encouraged to attend. Registration is FREE!
