Spring Event: Let's Have An Awesome Time Doing Science

As graduate students and postdocs, we have chosen an important and exciting yet challenging profession. How can we glean insight into successful approaches to complex issues like work-life balance, pressures of publication and completion, and managing ebbs and flows in research? Who better to learn from than some of the most respected scientists in academia? This symposium will feature high-profile, thoughtful researchers speaking to students and postdocs on subjects that aren't addressed often enough but are crucial to development and well-being as scientists. Visit the Awesome Science Symposium page for more information. May 16, 2016
