For many young scientists following their PhD or Postdoc - the role as Journal Editors is an exciting route. It is a career path that offers a smooth transition and opens up individuals to learning about the broader impact and cutting edge research influencing scientific research. It provides the opportunity to expand one's interest in science beyond bench research. It builds upon ones problem solving skills from being a trainee in Academia and learn project management, communications, and partnership development skills.

During this webinar, you’ll hear from a panel of Scientists on the following topics:

  • Career growth of the Panel as Journal Editors.
  • How does a peer review process work?
  • What opportunities to seek when planning for a career as an Editor?
  • What are the key skills one can develop when being in Academia to succeed in landing a position as an editor?

Our Panelists, George Caputa, Ph.D. and Francesca Riboni, Ph.D. will share their career paths after graduating and how they have evolved in their respective paths.
