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, John Van Horn @ the University of Virginia, and Susan N. Wright @ NIDA. The free, virtual panel takes place on Tuesday, April 18 from 3PM -
4PM EDT / 12PM - 1PM PDT. Please share the panel with anyone who may be interested in attending.
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.
