Balancing Teaching and Research in the Sciences: A Panel Discussion

Facilitator: Phoebe Askelson (Chemistry) and Katerina Placek (Neuroscience), CTL Graduate Fellows
Convener: Professors Marsha Lester (Chemistry), Andrea Liu (Physics), and David Raizen (Neurology)

Faculty positions in academic science challenge individuals to balance time and effort between instructing courses and maintaining active research laboratories. Distinguished Penn faculty members Dr. Marsha Lester of Chemistry, Dr. Andrea Liu of Physics, and Dr. David Raizen of Neurology successfully navigate these challenges, leading ground-breaking programs of research while also teaching undergraduate and graduate courses at Penn. In this panel discussion-based workshop, Drs. Lester, Liu, and Raizen will reflect on their experiences and discuss how to successfully balance teaching and research in the sciences. This workshop will be especially valuable to graduate students and postdocs interested in improving their own balance between the laboratory and classroom, and those who aspire to faculty positions in academic science.
