1.NPA Career Panel, Aug 5: What is a Research Development Professional?
Join the next National Postdoctoral Association myPostdoc Monthly: Research Development: A Career for Planners, Strategists and Figure-it-outers
Wednesday, August 5, 2020 at noon ET
Two roads diverged after a postdoc, and we took the one non-traditionally travelled. Research development professionals (RDP), like the ones on this panel, make team science happen by guiding scientists through the process of idea generation, building collaborations, identifying relevant funding sources, preparing (e.g., writing, critiquing, peer reviewing, editing, and project managing) grant applications, assisting with successful execution of research projects, completing grant terms, and preparing progress reports and manuscripts. Postdoctoral training confers effective and highly transferable skills that make postdocs valuable as RDP candidates.
In this presentation, three former postdocs who transferred to a RD career will share their knowledge, experiences and the unique challenges that each faced during their transition to help interested postdocs learn how to navigate this less well-known career path.
