Many postdoctoral scholars are accustomed to working independently to achieve their scientific and professional goals. For many postdocs, collaborating and managing teams, albeit in academic or industry settings is a new and unfamiliar way of advancing their scientific goals. How does one develop stable and productive collaborations? How does one manage and set timelines and expectations? As the majority of postdocs work on individualized projects, they may lack the experience of successfully managing direct reports. Join our panelists to learn about common managerial issues encountered by scientific teams in both academia and industry, techniques to keep teams motivated, how to provide constructive feedback and build good working relationships within and across teams.
