Mentoring Day

Mentoring Day, Dublin, Sunday September 17, 2017 (a collaborative work of ECR, YPIC, EuBIC)

“On how to create and realize your scientific vision”

In a fast-paced environment, it’s often easy to neglect professional growth and development. The annual one-day workshop during International HUPO 2017 is an intensive and interactive meeting designed to provide and practice helpful tools to the early career proteomics researchers for a more effective career development plan. Get re-energized at this workshop and receive invaluable advice and tips to realize your vision including time management, manuscript writing, grant writing, industrial collaborations/job opportunity, giving and receiving feedback and work-life balance. Everyone is welcome at the Mentoring Day, scheduled for Sunday, September 17th 2017 at HUPO Dublin.

This is a joint initiative of ECR, YPIC and EuBIC. Check out the June HUPOST for more details:
