At current economic and research funding situation, a lot of postdocs and PhD students feel that finding a faculty position and being a successful PI are difficult and challenging. In order to provide assistance and general advice in the academic career development, we have invited several highly successful faculty members in Seattle area to lead the panel discussion. The discussion leaders are at different stages of their career from junior faculty to well established professors. All of them had made very successful transitions from postdocs to faculty and they are extremely successful as PIs.

Career path is always case by case. However, there are many common features on finding a faculty position and on being a well funded PI. The invited discussion leaders will share their successful career stories and experience. They will also give general advice and suggestions. This panel discussion will provide a great chance for postdocs and graduate students to interact with successful PIs and to ask any questions they may have on their career development so they can be more prepared for their future career. The discussion will be especially helpful for those postdocs or PhD students who are planning to go on academic career pathway. Junior faculty will also find the discussion beneficial by hearing the successful stories and suggestions from well established professors.
