Trainees' Post, 2007-2008


For trainees by trainees

Trainees' Post is a feature of SRI's quarterly newsletter, Nexus. In it, we speak with students and postdoctoral fellows at SRI to collect their insights, advice and experiences on many facets of life as a trainee. Some of what we’ve covered includes career pathways, how to apply for awards and grants, presenting at conferences, submitting papers to journals, the summer student experience and making good educational choices.
