- Annual Staff Scientist Retreat
The retreat promotes interactions between staff scientists and fosters the collaborative culture of the Broad Institute.
Our popular socials bring together scientists from different disciplines, programs, and platforms.
- Monthly luncheons
Each month we choose a topic and invite panelists and staff scientists for informal conversations over lunch. Topics range from specific scientific techniques like RNA-Seq to choosing a career path and navigating personal finances.
- Onboarding initiative
Our team takes a new member of the staff scientist community to lunch (with Fooda coupons) and helps them get a great start at the Broad.
- Volunteering initiative
We give back to the community and connect with staff scientists across the Broad by working together in small teams.
- Broad job level matrices for research scientists and computational scientists
Descriptions, key responsibilities and technical proficiencies required for each job level.
- Career Coaching Clinic
Meet with an independent coach to discuss your career goals and how to achieve them.
- Travel grants
Up to four grants are awarded each year to support scientists attending conferences to build their reputation and professional network.
- Career development workshops and seminars
Improve and extend your skill set by attending expert-led workshops on topics like grant writing, LinkedIn, or career navigation.
- Professional biosketches
To increase the recognition of staff scientists inside and outside the Broad, we provide access to a professional writer to develop biosketches.
