Career Development Resources


Career Coach Katiuska Luna Cancalon helps students set up LinkedIn profiles


Founded in 2013, the CMB Career Development Committee is a student-run group that designs and organizes workshops for graduate students and postdocs. Our mission is to help scientists identify potential careers (both academic and non-academic) and develop skills to enter and be successful in those fields. A grassroots effort, we aim to foster community within and outside the university, and promote conversations about career development.

Resources for Informational Interviews:

One of the most effective ways to learn about a career is to conduct an informational interview. The Career Committee cares so much about this skill that they wrote a series of articles for Science Careers


CMB Careers usually hosts two workshops a semester. Please check here for information about past and ongoing projects.
