Courses to Help Grad Students Transition to Biotech
The American Society for Cell Biology (ASCB) is offering two week-long courses this summer to help them transition to careers in biotech. Of 230 participants from 2014-2018, 66% now have nonacademic jobs in industry, regulatory affairs, or tech transfer; the remainder are still in training or in academia. Moreover, the cohorts have remained close networking groups through social media. If any of your grad students are considering a move from academia to industry, then this course will help them succeed.
In 2020 ASCB is offering two courses: East Coast, in partnership with the University of Massachusetts Lowell, the Manning School of Business, May 31-June 6, and West Coast, in partnership with Keck Graduate Institute, Claremont, CA, July 12-18. Each course can accommodate up to 50 postdocs and graduate students (international and domestic). The course fee is $875, and scholarships from $200-$400 are available.
The course is designed primarily for postdocs, graduate students with at least three years of scientific research experience, and non-tenure-track junior scientists within 7 years of graduating with a PhD, though all are welcome to apply.
The deadline to apply is March 31. The application is straightforward, and the only stipulation is that once applicants have been accepted they must become an ASCB member. Click here for more information and to apply.

Solar Energy Innovators Program Opportunity
The purpose of the Solar Energy Innovators Program is to enable selected applicants to conduct practical research on innovative solutions to the challenges faced by electric utilities, energy service providers, and electric public utility commissions as the levels of solar energy, as well as other distributed energy resources (DERs), increase on the electrical grid.
Selected applicants, referred to as “Innovators” herein, will participate for up to two years at a Host Institution on one or more topics related to the integration of solar energy. The applicant to this program is the prospective Innovator. The applicant must identify a Host Institution and potential mentor at a utility, energy service provider, or public utilities commission (PUC) currently conducting research in an area related to the integration of solar energy onto the electricity grid. Host Institutions may seek potential Innovators that are eligible to apply to the program, but it is the potential Innovator, not the Host Institution or mentor, who submits the application and supporting materials to this site.
Applications are accepted on a rolling basis. Applications are downloaded for review on the first of the month, and applicants can expect to hear whether they move to the next stage within 30 days. Subsequent selection process stages include telephone interviews of the applicant and mentor. The process from application submittal to Innovator start date is approximately 3 months. For more information and to apply visit https://www.zintellect.com/Opportunity/Details/DOE-EERE-RPP-SETO-2019-2100.
