Tune in weekly to our virtual series “Seventeen Minutes of Science” every Tuesday at 11am PST / 2pm ET where we go live on Facebook with a new guest each week to talk about how science and biotechnology is woven into their lives for (you guessed it) 17 minutes!

For episode 27 of 17 Minutes of Science, we are joined by Dr. Jennifer Polk, a career coach and expert on PhD careers. Jen will be joining us to discuss alternative careers for PhDs outside of academia, and provide support and insights to those considering transitioning away from academia.
