Grad students: Apply now for ComSciCon’18!

Applications are now open for the Communicating Science 2018 workshop, to be held in Boston, MA on June 14-16, 2018!

Graduate students at U.S. and Canadian institutions in all fields of science, technology, engineering, health, mathematics, and related fields are encouraged to apply.  The application deadline is March 1st.

As for past ComSciCon national workshops, acceptance to the workshop is competitive; attendance is free and travel support and lodging will be provided to accepted applicants.

Attendees will be selected on the basis of their achievement in and capacity for leadership in science communication.  Graduate students who have engaged in entrepreneurship and created opportunities for other students to practice science communication are especially encouraged to apply.

Participants will network with other leaders in science communication and build the communication skills that scientists and other technical professionals need to express complex ideas to the general public, experts in other fields, and their peers. In additional to panel discussions on topics like Science Journalism, Creative & Digital Storytelling, and Diversity and Inclusion in Science, ample time is allotted for networking with science communication experts and developing science outreach collaborations with fellow graduate students.

I just earned a Ph.D. in the Lohmann Lab at the University of Rhode Island Graduate School of Oceanography, where my research focuses on how toxic chemicals like flame retardants end up in our lakes and oceans. Before graduate school, I earned a B.Sc. in chemistry from MIT and spent two years working in environmental consulting. When I’m not doing chemistry in the lab, I’m doing chemistry at home (brewing beer).
