As the number of PhDs awarded in science and engineering continues to increase while the number of academic jobs remains steady, it is increasingly important to train doctoral candidates for alternative careers. Research development is a rapidly expanding profession for individuals with a PhD in science or engineering. The primary function of research development professionals is to support faculty and institutional efforts to secure and increase extramural research funding. Join this workshop to learn about the diversity of pathways to a career in research development and strategies for increasing your success in landing a job in this exciting field.
