A sequence of workshops on the preparation for professional life after the Ph.D. program, culminating in the completion of a curriculum vitae or resume, outline of possible jobs, and a competitive grant proposal. A major goal is for the student to design and write a grant for a technology startup program or for an academic research grant. Successful research and SBIR proposals are outlined and the processes for evaluating them are offered by research principal investigators, grant administration officials, and corporate representatives. Both academic CVs and industry resumes can be developed. Workshops include job search guides, management skills and research team management. Submitted student proposals and CVs are critiqued for improvement.
