Developing an Active and Engaged Workforce Today and in the Future

Workforce Trends: The Future of Microbial Sciences

To better understand the microbiology workforce, we commissioned a new study providing the most current look at the demographic makeup, employment patterns and occupations of the microbiology discipline. The report is a robust analysis of the microbiology discipline that explores key trends in education, employment, occupations, earnings and job satisfaction. Providing this robust analysis is essential for informing early-career scientists about the status of the pipeline and the outcomes for a career in microbiology. We will use this data to better prepare, train, advocate for and support individuals in the microbial sciences in order to develop an active and engaged workforce today and in the future.

ASM Future Leaders Mentoring Fellowship

The Future Leaders Mentoring Fellowship supports graduate students from underrepresented groups by providing mentorship for educational, career and leadership development.

Educational Resources

We provide resources to facilitate educators in teaching microbial sciences to a K-12 and undergraduate audience.
