  • NIH All About Grants Podcasts: What Early Career Researchers Should Know

    What Early Career Researchers Should Know (Part 1) – the Hidden Curriculum


    Embarking on a career in biomedicine is more than doing experiments and writing NIH grant applications. How does one early in their research career learn about these other important skills, and what exactly are they? 


    This episode of a two-part NIH All About Grants Podcast mini-series explores the “hidden curriculum” for early career researchers. Our conversation features hosts of two NIH podcasts that delve into topics of interest for researchers seeking independence and other considerations related to career progression. The guests are podcasters Dr. Oliver Bogler, host of Inside Cancer Careers from the National Cancer Institute, and Dr. Lauren Ullrich, co-host of Building Up the Nerve from the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke. Here we will relay experiences and lessons learned on finding the right mentor, importance of open communication, networking, career progression and opportunities, and much more. 


    “We know that education in general, it’s not only what you learn in the formal classroom, but it’s also this other hidden curriculum that’s the values, and the beliefs, and the behaviors, and all these pieces of scientific culture that are implicitly there. What are the norms and practices of being a scientist?” – Dr. Lauren Ullrich 


    “one of the themes that comes out is the importance of connecting with other people that can help you find that right insight, guide you in the projects you’re doing, or in the hidden curriculum…How do you build those relationships? How do you get those jobs? And, how do you get those grants and papers published?” – Dr. Oliver Bogler


    Stay tuned until the very end of our conversation to catch a trailer for Inside Cancer Careers as well. In part 2, we will discuss knowing more about yourself and your research as you consider applying for NIH support.
