NIH Support for Typical and Non-typical Career Trajectories:  Getting To Where You Want to Be

This session will explore NIH funding mechanisms in support of the typical post-doc to faculty pathway, as well as other types of post-post-doc career trajectories, and how NIH support can factor in.

Stuart Moss and Susan Taymans, program officers in the Fertility and Infertility Branch of NICHD, will give brief overviews of NIH funding mechanisms, including some lesser known ones, to support scientists on their own road to an independent science career. The session will also feature presentations from scientists with a variety of career pathways, from the “traditional path” to research intensive faculty (with some interesting stops along the way), to less typical paths such as non-research intensive faculty, industry, and policy. Speakers will talk about their challenges and successes in obtaining NIH funding in light of their strategies for career development,  and how the realities of life and family interact. Following the presentations, there will be a Q and A session with the whole panel.

The SSR is proud to present, with support from the Gates Foundation, a two-part workshop on science communication to be presented by instructors from the Alan Alda Center for Communicating Science.  This workshop will highlight features of the "Alda Method," honed by Alan Alda himself through his 11 years of hosting the PBS television series "Scientific American Frontiers" and improvisional techniques he developed in his 50 years of acting on stage and on screen.

   Alda Institute Workshop - "Connection is a Choice," introduces participants to general principles in how to craft short, clear, conversational statements, intelligible to non- scientists, about what you do and why it matters. The session will be an interactive presentation and discussion on interpreting technical material using examples and analogies to illuminate unfamiliar concepts to your audience.

   Alda Intensive Workshop - "Building on Some Basics”, is more hands-on and interactive and introduces participants to the improvisational techniques that are the foundation of the Alda Method.  In this session, participants will practice skills to speak vividly and expressively about their research and to create common ground through conversational language and foster more genuine connections with an audience. This workshop is limited to 32 participants, so sign up early, first come, first served!  Part 2
