In this lecture, I will try to convey a feeling for our course on “Survival Skills for Scientists”. This is a graduate course in my department, in which we give basic advice and offer mentorship to our graduate students and post-docs.

The central theme of the panel discussion is that succeeding in Science requires skills beyond those needed for Science.

The discussion panel is aimed at giving basic advice and mentorship to young scientists (typically first year graduate students).


Topics for discussion include:


·          the job market for science graduates,

·          comparing different environments such as industry, government labs and academia;

·          planning your career;

·          ‘playing chess’;

·          finding a mentor;

·          the peer review system;

·          communicating your Science;

·          funding your Science;

·          Ethics in Science.
