Career Flash Talks


Each presenter will have the opportunity to give a 5-minute flash talk that focuses on showcasing the role of data science in the company or group that they represent. Each presenter that gives a flash talk will also then have the opportunity to host a booth or table that participants can visit over lunch.

Career flash talks will include answers to the following questions:

  1. How does the organization use data science?
  2. What career path did the speaker follow to reach their positions?
    1. How do you translate what you learned in college to your career?
    2. What are some of the main differences in postdoctoral work in academia versus your sector?
    3. Any challenges in transitioning from academia to industry? 
    4. What skills (at bench or otherwise) are most important for postdocs wishing to transition to industry?
How can your company or group participate in the Career Session?
