Lab Time Management: a Practical Perspective

October 25th, 2011 in General News, test

From a practical perspective, one of the most daunting challenges for beginning investigators is learning how to cram an impossible load of new obligations into a 24-hour day.   Finding ways to manage the conflicting demands on your time can be a key to developing a successful career and a rewarding personal life. Our recent  Postdoctoral Affairs Speaker Series Seminar held on 10/27/11 addressed this issue.

Time Management.postdoc

One of the postdoc who attended said this about the event and the Office of Postdoctoral Affairs:

“Thanks so much for organizing the time management workshop. The speakers had really helpful advice and offered good perspective on what to prioritize and how to do so. I appreciated that this, like all of the workshops you’ve  coordinated that I have attended, was really well-focused  on postdocs.”

Thank you Drs. Nikolajczyk and Weiss  who have agreed to work with postdocs to present similar workshops on this subject in the future.
