Look for the leaders

August 08, 2017

Early-career scientists often think about leadership in a formal sense and at the highest levels — an appointed administrator at a university, an elected leader of a scientific union.

But leadership usually starts informally, and for it to take root early in a career, we need to teach and mentor it as we do other acquired skills. But unlike master's of business administration programmes, most US PhD programmes do not provide leadership training.
