CDN Roundup

March 2023


Neuroscience Career Panel

Learn practical tips for cultivating a successful career in neuroscience from our distinguished guests: Michael Beyeler @ UCSB, Ariel Rokem @ the University of Washington, and John Van Horn @ the University of Virginia. The free, virtual panel takes place on Tuesday, April 18 from 3PM - 4PM EDT / 12PM - 1PM PDT. 
This is our last career panel before we break for the summer. During the next season, which kicks off in August, we'll cover topics like applying to data science graduate and undergraduate programs. We'll also feature panelists who will provide tips for teaching and mentoring junior researchers and students. In the meantime, you can watch our previous panels on our YouTube channel. Check out the ADSA Community Blog for summaries and key takeaways.

If you have an idea for a career panel, let us know by replying to this email.
