Research networking enhances collaboration and research productivity. Graduate students and postdocs practice networking skills with GW COMPASS, GW Career Services and the GW-Postdoctoral Association, as well as the National Postdoctoral Association.
Find other GW researchers in your field with the SMHS faculty researcher database. Researchers talk about their work and network across the university at Grand Rounds, Research Interest Groups, and Journal Clubs.
Networking often involves skills such as informational interviewing and engaging with professional organizations, many of which have their headquarters in D.C. These include:
- American Association for the Advancement of Science
- Council of Graduate Schools
- National Postdoctoral Association
- Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology
