I am quite excited to bring you this month's issue! Silviya Zustiak interviews Tijana Jovanovic-Talisman, an NICHD fellow who recently accepted a tenure-track position at the University of Hawai'i at Manoa, about Tijana's job search and interview process with a newborn baby! This is a MUST read for all fellows who start or grow a family during a job search. You might be surprised at the flexibility some universities give to new parents during the interview process.
For anyone who missed this year's annual fellows retreat, we present our first interview with one of the retreat's career panel participants, Jeanne Fringer. Jeanne is a research scientist in the pharmaceutical industry. She offers helpful tips about finding and obtaining an industry job, and she explains what one might expect in an industry research position.
Finally, Prasanna Satpute-Krishnan gives an informational review of the recent Postdoc Success Forum, a valuable event that covered four types of research settings: liberal arts college, private university, public university, and industry.
