Grow Your COM (Jan 6): BMS Recruitment Social
January 6, 2017 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm
As we have discussed before, recruitment events are great opportunities to practice your science communication skills and/or your “Elevator Pitch,” and to network with the next generation of researchers. However, when one day you have your own lab, run your own team in industry or brave the world of entrepreneurship you will need to be able to both effectively communicate and promote your work as well as interest new talent in joining your team.
In previous years, at the request of TPC PI Brad Day, we presented both lab posters and a TPC poster with great success. Adam Seroka and Shawna Rowe are two recruits who eventually joined MSU and have been participants in The Pub Club. Our first opportunity of the new year to practice these skills comes on Friday January 6th, which is the first recruitment weekend for the BioMolecular Science (BMS) Gateway program (see below for programs/departments included). This year there will be a social rather than a poster session. As members of The Pub Club participating in recruitment events, we should be prepared to discuss our science, the benefits of doing plant research at MSU as well as the unique value of joining TPC labs, so come with that Elevator Pitch prepared!
The BioMolecular Science Gateway offers admission to 6 graduate programs: Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, Cell and Molecular Biology, Genetics, Microbiology and Molecular Genetics, Pharmacology and Toxicology, and Physiology. “While earning their Ph.D. (the BMS does not accept Masters students), the students have access to training in over 150 research laboratories in the fields of biochemistry, cancer, cell biology, genomics, genetics, immunology, microbiology, molecular biology, pharmacology, toxicology, physiology, plant molecular biology, structural biology, and virology.”
