The Northeast Superfund Research Program (SRP) Training Workshop, co-sponsored by the Boston University SRP, the Dartmouth SRP, and the PROTECT Center at Northeastern University, was held April 2 - 3, 2015 at Boston University. The first day of the workshop, attended by 29 trainees, began with trainee presentations. This was followed by five presentations focused on encouraging individual reflection and professional growth. The keynote speaker, former Dartmouth SRP trainee Courtney Kozul-Horvath, Ph.D., DABT (Novartis Institute for Biomedical Research), spoke about how she has used the opportunities and networks around her to advance her diverse and successful career while also balancing time with family and personal priorities. Angela Jackson, M.D. (Boston University) presented "Career Planning – How to Plan and Implement your Career Aspirations," which engaged trainees in hands-on career planning exercises, including some thoughtful reflection about their skills, knowledge, interests, and values. Steve McGonagle (Northeastern University) presented "The DISC Personality Type – Impacts on Interactions," which applied the results of a brief DISC personality test to a workshop on how different personality types can translate into leadership skills and group dynamics. Thomas Sheahan, Sc.D., P.E. (Northeastern University) and Katherine S. Ziemer, Ph.D. (Northeastern University) presented "Individual Development Plans & Your C.V. – Professional Development & Presentation," followed by a collaborative review and critique of best practices. On the second day, trainees participated in a workshop led by the Alan Alda Center for Communicating Science. The workshop focused on improving the communication skills of trainees to convey their work and enhance public understanding of scientific research.
