Science in Color Podcast – Ep 07: Interview with Dr. Kevin Jones, an African-American Scientist’s Journey to Greatness

In this episode, Veronica has a conversation with Dr. Kevin Jones – an African-American professor in the pharmacology department at the University of Michigan.  This revealing interview covers a wide range of topics via the filter of Dr. Jones’s non-traditional journey to a tenure-track position.  From his injury that cut short his track career, to his time as a postdoc in Spain, to his decision to quit a teaching-heavy tenure-track position to return to a postdoc position to redirect his career to be more research focused; Dr. Jones’s career has taken many twists and turns and lends evidence to the idea that everyone’s path is different and that’s okay.
