UC Berkeley is hosting a Summer Luncheon Series to discuss issues related to science graduate students. From noon-1 pm in 120 Durant Hall, the following topics will be discussed:
6/28/2012– “Social Networking & Science: The do’s and don’t’s in new media and science”
7/12/2012– “Getting started with Academics: Prelims, classes & rotations”
7/18/2012– “Networking & Career Building Strategies”
7/26/2012– “Getting Started with Funding”
8/2/2012– “Research Skills & Selecting a Research Group”
8/9/2012– “Communicating with Your Advisor to Get What You Need”
Some of these topics are aimed at a younger or later graduate student; however, most apply to graduate students at all levels. They will be great opportunities to meet other scientists outside of your specialty!
