Advice for Women in Science

Dr. Amanda Bryant-Friedrich, associate professor of medicinal chemistry and president of the local chapter of the Association for Women in Science, offers tips to women entering science careers.

IDENTIFY YOUR PASSION

A career in the sciences can be challenging. If you have a passion for the work, however, you can call upon that passion to remain motivated.

DEVELOP A LIFE PLAN

It’s important to have a life plan—not just a career plan or education plan. Knowing what you want your life to look like, and what a successful life means to you, is necessary as you plan your future.

ASK FOR HELP

Strong-willed, intelligent women sometimes forget that we all need help sometimes. Ask for help and build relationships that support your goals.

MAKE TIME FOR FUN

In order to be a well-rounded person, you have to create space for enjoyment. Do what you love, spend time with friends and family, and maintain the joy in your life.
