Presidential Symposium

Annual Presidential Career Symposium

The Annual Presidential Career Symposium, organized by the postdoctoral fellows of sponsoring institutions in the Texas Medical Center, connects the private and public sector, industry and academia for the rising generation of graduated scientists to engage in their next career move. As academic careers have become the exception and not the rule for the vast majority of Ph.D. holders, the Presidential Career Symposium provides a great opportunity for postdocs to become better educated about the career choices they have to help plan for their future.

The upcoming 3rd Annual Presidential Career Symposium, titled “Launch Your Career”, will be held on 27th February, 2014. We are pleased to have a nationally recognized speaker, Dr. Peter Fiske, the founder of Pax Scientific and the author of Put Your Science to Work, as our keynote speaker. In addition, the event will feature workshops and panel discussions that will feature eminent speakers and senior career advisors from a variety of organizations. We are also excited to have the current President of BioHouston, Jacqueline R. Northcut, to present on the local opportunities in biosciences in the Houston area at the start of our networking reception.

We expect more than 400 doctoral students and post-doctoral fellows from the Texas Medical Center to attend this year's Symposium.
