People Management for Principal Investigators, June 17-18

Every principal investigator wants to build and maintain a lab that attracts and retains outstanding trainees and staff members. Juggling this endeavor with everything else the PI must do – writing papers, teaching, mentoring, gaining and maintaining funding, creating collaborative and productive relationships with other PIs – can be challenging at best. This 1.5-day course, led by Jennifer Crosby-Meurisse and Rachel Dresbeck from the Office of the Senior Vice President for Research, will help you learn to manage people with a focus on the particular needs of running a lab or research group.

When: Friday, June 17, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturday, June 18, 9 a.m. to 12 p.m.
Location: Biomedical Research Building, 581
