IN BRIEF: 1st Annual Postdoc Retreat a Success!

Postdoc Retreat highlighted in the Hub


A torrential downpour on the morning of May 16, 2014 did not keep ~90 postdoctoral fellows from the Schools of Engineering, Arts and Sciences, and Medicine to come together at the JHU Homewood campus for the 1st Annual Postdoc Retreat.


The Associate Dean of Postdoctoral Affairs, Dr. Martha Zeiger, kicked off the event with a professionally delivered welcome. While Emily Graslie (@Ehmee), the Chief Curiosity Correspondent for The Field Museum in Chicago and host of the The Brain Scoop, emphasized the use of social media for communicating our science to the public. In addition, she expertly reminded us that Dimetrodon is not a dinosaur!


Posters were judged by JHU and JHMI Deans and Faculty, including the Vice Dean of Education for the School of Medicine, Dr. Roy Ziegelstein. In the afternoon, Sarah Elfreth (@SarahElfreth) discussed how she bridges the communication gap between scientists and the government while lobbying for the National Aquarium and Wildlife protection bills at the local, state and federal levels.  


In between the two plenary lectures, morning and afternoon breakout sessions were hosted by JHMI’s PDO and Dave Jensen from “Science Careers” that focused on networking, elevator speeches, specific aims, and negotiations.

.

Congratulations to travel award winners, David Zuckerman, Jeffrey Norris, Amir Ali Rahsepar, and poster award winners Melinda Power, David Murphy, and Sarah Stamper.


Thanks to all retreat participants and to the 100+ retreat survey respondents. Your suggestions, participation, and help in planning  next year’s retreat  will help to make it even better!

IN BRIEF: Associate Dean’s Corner

Zeiger_Resized.jpg


A few thoughts on professionalism

Professionalism takes on many forms and one is just as important as the next in order to have a fulfilling and successful career. How an individual speaks and interacts with others tells us of their respect and regard for them; how one appears and presents oneself tells us of their regard for themselves; and how one conducts and presents their work tells us of their regard for their work and their profession. Embedded within each of these interactions include a myriad of avenues to express professionalism: one’s choice of words, one’s style of communication, respect toward others, enjoyment of others, the celebration of great science, empathy toward failure, going the extra mile to create the best speech, manuscript, figure, powerpoint slide as well as innumerable other venues. One can be gifted or average; in the end it is the delivery that really counts.

Understanding Your Career Interests and Personality Preferences

Illuminate the path to better career choices by relating psychological type to the Individual Development Plan. Based on Jung’s theory of type, the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) is a self-report questionnaire that identifies normal personality differences and preferences that each of us has. Understanding and appreciating these differences can be a valuable way to better communicate and collaborate in the workplace and in our personal lives. Use the free online version of an Individual Development Plan, myIDP from the Sciencecareers.org portal, to identify your specific skills, values and interests. Then connect these with your personality preference using practical concepts and exercises during the 3-hour workshop.

When: Wednesday, May 28, 2014, 12 -3pm

Where: 1830 E. Monument Street Building, Classroom 2-108

Register: click here. Register and pay by Friday, May 23rd. 25 person limit

Note: There is a fee of $20 for taking the MBTI. You must complete the online MBTI and you are encouraged to complete myIDP before attending the workshop.
