Growing Up in Science with Dr. Eric Archer
Have you ever wondered what your advisor or committee member struggled with as a graduate student? What they struggle with now? Growing Up in Science is a conversation series that is not about science, but about becoming and being a scientist. At each event, one guest shares their life story, with a focus on struggles, failures, doubts, detours, and weaknesses.
Common topics include dealing with expectations (your own and others), impostor syndrome, procrastination, the role of luck, rejection, and conflicts with advisors, but these topics are always embedded in the speaker's broader narrative. For more info on the series origination, see www.growingupinscience.com.
November's GUIS features Dr. Eric Archer, Geneticist at NOAA Southwest Fisheries Science Center. RSVP to attend.
**This event is for students and postdocs only (other than guest and moderator).
