Postdoc Appreciation Week Keynote Speaker: Dr. Sean Sanders

Where do I go from here? Paving your path to career success.”
 
Career paths for Ph.D. graduates are often seen as both straight and narrow, especially for the academic track. But it doesn’t have to be that way.  There are many fulfilling careers inside and outside academia.  But how do you find them?  The first step is asking yourself what you want and where you want to go in life.  Only then can you figure out how to get there.  I hope to share with you some questions that will be helpful in finding your path, as well as resources that you can use to get on that path and stay the course.
 
Dr. Sanders did his undergraduate training at the University of Cape Town, South Africa, and his Ph.D. at the University of Cambridge, UK, supported by the Wellcome Trust. Following postdoctoral training at the National Institutes of Health and Georgetown University, Dr. Sanders joined TranXenoGen, a startup biotechnology company in Massachusetts working on avian transgenics. Pursuing his parallel passion for writing and editing, Dr. Sanders joined BioTechniques as an editor, before joining Science/AAAS in 2006.
