Scientific Management Series (SMS) for Postdocs
Topics in Scientific Management (INDE230)


This winter quarter course aims to introduce postdocs to laboratory or research management skills that are critical to launch productive independent careers in academic and other settings. This series discusses some of the most critical aspects in effectively directing and managing a research lab.  The series draws on a number of senior faculty and other prominent experts who draw on their own journey managing a research enterprise.  SMS hopes to offer their perspective.  The series is intended to complement the HHMI/BWF book, Making the Right Moves – A Practical Guide to Scientific Management for Postdocs and New Faculty.

Winter Quarter: Academic Year 2016-2017 *

The book for the SMS series is available online (free) at http://www.hhmi.org/programs/resources-early-career-scientist-development/making-right-moves.

* Videos and slides from 2017 SMS lectures can be viewed here.
