Navigating the Research Enterprise

Navigating the Research Enterprise is a weekly seminar series for early-career faculty and postdoctoral fellows designed to provide the support needed to focus on developing the key skills young scientists require to progress beyond just doing good research.

Attendees will be introduced to issues such as finding sources for research funds, writing effective grants, and building a network of professional colleagues.

Current Sessions

The fall 2022 seminar series began September 19. This is a free professional development series. Registration is available through December 12, 2022, and can be accessed via the NUCATS Resource Request and Registration Form.
