1st Year: Corey Holman

Welcome to Penn!!! I’m a first year CPM student in the Seale Lab who loves studying brown adipose tissue and metabolism. I took a couple years off to work as a tech before coming to Penn. Taking time off was the best decision for me - I got to discover what area of science really fascinated me, knew exactly which labs I wanted to rotate in, and gained life experience working for a couple years before going back to school. However, I have to say, the transition from working life back to school was difficult. I had never struggled in classes before but getting back into the studying mindset was harder than expected, especially in areas...

“What do you want to do after graduate school?”

This is the question that every PhD student dreads hearing. There are so many career paths that students with a PhD can follow after graduating, and it can be quite overwhelming to chose which path to take. Fortunately, Career Services offers many resources that can help students choose a career. Dr. Joseph Barber, Senior Associate Director at Career Services for graduate students and postdocs, talks about the resources offered by Career Services and shares some tips for easing the process of deciding the next steps after graduate school.

The first thing to keep in mind is that it is never too early to go to C...

The CAMB Symposium helps strengthen the CAMB community by bringing together current and former students. Twenty-seven CAMB alumni, whose careers range from tenure track professors to patent judge, attended the symposium. They participated in career panels to share their post-graduation experiences, and give current students advice on how to navigate life after graduate school. Despite the varied career paths of the panelists, each panel discussed similar themes.

Many of the panelists commented on things they did, or wish they had done, during graduate school to help them while looking for jobs. Panelists stressed that networking is an extremely important s...

Crafting a non-academic career path for a typical CAMB graduate student can be a complex balancing act of juggling never-ending hours of lab work, hobbies, and a personal life. Meeting recent CAMB alumni who have successfully navigated the real-life labyrinths to secure non-academic jobs can thus be refreshing and inspiring. Renske Erion is a recent alumna of the Cancer Biology subgroup who completed her Ph.D. in Amita Sehgal’s lab, where she studied mechanisms of circadian rhythm regulation. She is currently a project director for the Emerging Leaders in Science and Society (ELISS) Program in Seattle, Washington.

The ELISS program is a service-oriented ex...

Amy DeMicco and Matthew Harms—CB and DSRB alumni, respectively—both work for AstraZeneca in Sweden. Amy and Matthew bring interesting perspectives about the transition from academia to industry, finding jobs with a significant other, and living and working abroad.

The start of the journey: Amy completed her PhD in Craig Bassing’s lab (July 2015), studying how specific gene expression programs promote both normal lymphocyte function and suppression of malignant transformation. Matt completed his thesis and a brief post-doctoral fellowship in Patrick Seale’s lab. There, he investigated the role of a transcription factor, PRDM16, in the identity and function...
