How Do You Transition From The Bench Towards Scientific Writing?

Open Q&A with Tiago Faial and Abby Tabor

By Laurence Bianchini | COO at MyScienceWork

"I was reading a lot of National Geographic during my summer job. There was an article about paleontologists on a dig in Mongolia, and I realized, 'Hey, wait, that journalist got to go hunt for fossils - without being a paleontologist!' That's when I discovered there was a job that would let you do a lot of fascinating stuff around science without actually being a scientist," explains Abby Tabor enthusiastically.

Abby Tabor and Tiago Faial came to speak to members of AIMS, answering postdocs' questions about working in science writing and the publishing world.

Now’s your chance to get that info or advice you’ve been wondering about but didn't know who to ask!
