Are you considering a career as a PI at an R1 institution or have you been put off by the seemingly daunting narrative portrayed in the popular scientific press? Join us this month for a panel discussion looking at common misconceptions surrounding the desirability and attainability of research-intensive faculty positions. Our panelists include Dr. Mark Peifer and Dr. Amy Gladfelter, who together recently published an engaging perspective piece titled "What your PI forgot to tell you: Why you actually might want a job running a research lab" in Molecular Biology of the Cell (http://www.molbiolcell.org/content/28/13/1724.full.pdf+html). All current and past trainees are encouraged to attend, ask questions, and join in on the discussion.

Coffee and Snacks will be served.
