The Road to My Own Advanced Lab
From Postdoc in the US to My Own Lab in Israel: Valuable Advice from Zuckerman STEM Scholars who Succeeded

The Road to My Own Advanced Lab includes 5 webinar sessions:
Every other Thursday / 8 pm Israel time (1 pm EST)
August 27-October 29 (skip October 8)
All sessions are conducted in Hebrew.

  • Prioritizing conflicting tasks: How do you juggle research, grant proposals, teaching, and managing your staff?
  • Preparing for the next stage: How can you enlist your postdoc colleagues to help?
  • What’s the best way to recruit lab staff?
  • What are best practices for managing a budget?
  • Who should you consult for advice?

We at the Zuckerman STEM Leadership Program, together with Science Abroad, recognize the challenges you face when transitioning from a postdoc abroad to your own independent lab in Israel. Several of our successful Zuckerman Faculty Scholars have graciously agreed to share their experiences with you. Using their insights, we’ve created a series of 5 webinars to help ease your transition.
