Scientific Leadership & Management Skills Course

The Bay Area Postdoc Coalition, a partnership consisting of Berkeley lab, Gladstone Institutes, UCSF, and UC Berkeley, is launching a Scientific Leadership and Management Course (SLMS) in February of 2023.

The SLMS course -- targeted at senior postdocs and junior faculty -- is recommended for those who are about to lead research groups in academics or in industry. It's modeled after one of the most popular programs organized by Gladstone and UCSF for the last 15 years.

Hybrid Logistics: The SLMS course will be provided over three days in-person, with one week apart. Each session will include a didactic session with a speaker followed by an interactive breakout group period for the last hour. Speakers will be in-person at Gladstone, which will be live-streamed to each physical campus location.
