The Bioscience Careers Seminar Series Presents:
"Hope Is Not A Plan: Coaching Scientists for Success"
Karen Peterson, Ph.D.
Director, Office of Scientific Career Development
Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, Seattle, WA
Thursday, January 10, 2019, 5:00-6:00pm
Health Sciences Building, Room T-747
Karen has built a career on work that facilitates success in academia. Her professional work experience includes developing an interdisciplinary training program, managing an astronomy outreach education program, and her current roles that include facilitating scientist career success and navigating conflicts for scientists. Most of her current work involves managing expectations and preparing for success under less than ideal circumstances.
Karen received a B.A. in Genetics from UC Berkeley and a Ph.D. in Experimental Medicine from McGill University. She was a postdoctoral fellow at the Fred Hutch before making a career transition into administration. She is often interviewed about research training and ethics issues by journals such as Nature and Science.
