Our goal is to prepare students for any career by incorporating professional skill development into student training (communications, grant writing, CV preparation, to name a few).
Vilcek partners with the NYU Wasserman Center for Career Development to offer various workshops and seminars throughout the year to help graduate students with their career paths, such as Networking 101 and virtual career fairs.
The Science Training Enhancement Program (STEP) is an NIH-funded program that helps graduate students and postdoctoral scholars shorten and optimize their time spent in training.
The program provides career counseling, skill building, and job searching assistance.
We also host a national conference, “What can you be with a PhD?”, a science and technology focused career convention, on the Langone campus that draws participants from around the nation and allows for networking and career exploration.
