The mission of the ESPMIS Interest Group is to foster the career development and advancement of professional researchers in academia and industry during the early stages of their career (postdoctoral fellows/researchers, instructors, assistant professors and equivalents in academia and industry). Members will take an advocacy position within the WMIS on issues of importance to young investigators in molecular imaging science. Furthermore, we will provide networking events and leadership for career development opportunities for early stage professionals in molecular imaging sciences.
WMIS invites you to find your place to grow, collaborate and make a difference – join the ESPMIS Interest Group today.

MI Career Job Board
MI Career job board, organized under the auspices of the WMIS Early Stage Professionals in Molecular Imaging Sciences Interest Group, matches open positions of registered employers or Principle Investigators with candidates such as postdoctoral fellows/researchers, junior faculty, and junior/senior scientists in molecular imaging and associated science and engineering disciplines throughout the world.
During the Fellows Meet and Greet, Thomas Reiner demonstrated the MI Career web page. MI Career gives you the opportunity to browse postdoc offers at different Molecular Imaging labs to find the right job opportunity for your skillset, so that your postdoctoral research will be a step up the ladder of success.

WMIC 2017: Early Stage Professionals in Molecular Imaging Sciences (ESPMIS) Interest Group
Educational Session 6: Navigating the Transition from Graduate Student to Postdoctoral Fellow (ESPMIS)
Wednesday, September 13, 2017, 9:00-10:30
Description: This year, ESPMIS will provide an educational career-development session focused on one of the most important times in a young scientist’s career: the transition from graduate student to postdoctoral fellow. The session is headlined by three presentations focused different aspects of this topic: choosing a postdoctoral mentor (Prof. Nerissa Viola-Villegas, Wayne State University), shaping your postdoctoral fellowship for your future career (Dr. Julien Dimastromatteo, University of Virginia), and the choice between academia and industry (Dr. Kiel Neumann, University Virginia). In addition, we will be hosting a panel discussion entitled “The Promise and Pitfalls of an International Post-Doc” that will provide an entertaining and diverse set of viewpoints on the advantages and disadvantages of traveling abroad for postdoctoral fellowships.
Presentation 1: Choosing the Right Postdoctoral Mentor
Nerissa Viola-Villegas, PhD, Wayne State University
Moderator: Sai Kiran Sharma, MSKCC
Presentation 2: Tailoring Your Post-Doc for the Job You Want
Julien Dimastromatteo, PhD, University of Virginia, Charlottesville
Presentation 3: Industry or Academia: Which Would You Choose
Kiel Neumann, PhD, University of Virginia
To globally support the professional development of postdoctoral fellows/researchers, junior faculty, and junior/senior scientists in Molecular Imaging and associated science and engineering disciplines.
