“I think we’re all here for the same reason,” said Michaela Patterson, a postdoc in the Eli and Edythe Broad Center for Regenerative Medicine and Stem Cell Research at USC. “We’re considering applying for faculty jobs, and we’re at a loss for where to start.”

To prepare themselves for the rigors of the application process, nearly 50 postdocs came from departments across USC to attend the first installment of “Preparing for the faculty job market.”

The three-part seminar series is the brainchild of USC Stem Cell postdocs Patterson and Lindsey Barske. The two secured funding for the series from USC’s Center for Excellence in Research, as well as the participation of both junior and senior faculty from the Department of Stem Cell Biology and Regenerative Medicine.
