Professional Development

Successful research careers involve more than the technical skills learned at the bench or during data analysis. There are so many skills that will be valuable for your career that will require seeking out specific professional development workshops and resources, a few of which I have compiled here. These programs will help you develop what are often called 'soft skills', but that term undersells how important they can be for your success. These skills include time management, project management, habit-building, and resiliency practices that will not only make you a better scientist, but a happier one at that.
