Speaker: Keith Micoli, PhD, assistant dean for postdoctoral affairs, Office of Science and Research, NYU Langone Health

Being a graduate student or a postdoc can often feel like you’ve been dropped in the middle of nowhere, and it can be hard to know what direction is right for you. Micoli knows this feeling well, having completed a PhD and postdoc, and also hiking the 130-mile-long Northville–Placid trail alone. While on his 10-day trek, he discovered many similarities between successfully completing his scientific training and successfully completing a long hike. This workshop combines both sides of his story in an interactive session that is informative and entertaining, whether you are the outdoorsy type or not.

From “Committing to Your Goals” to “Doing the Best You Can With What You’ve Got,” this workshop will help you define what is most important to you, find the gaps in your current training plan and help you begin to create a career plan that considers your skills, values and interests in a holistic way. Workshop attendees should come away with a better sense of their long-term goals, a deeper understanding of the values that they are most passionate about and a plan to develop the skills they need to be successful in career they choose to pursue.
