The FUTURE program, a career exploration program for Ph.D. students and postdoctoral scholars involved in health related research, invites you to “Campus-Side Career Chats”, a monthly speaker series and meetup with Ph.D. professionals in science careers. This is a great opportunity for students and postdocs to find out about internship/career opportunities, network, and learn about alternative career paths.
Pizza will be served. Space for each meetup is limited so we strongly recommend that postdocs and grad students RSVP. (Please only RSVP if you are sure you can attend.)
