JSIAM helps PhD students prepare for the future
The fourth Junior Scientist & Industry Annual Meeting (JSIAM) will be held at MINATEC on March 30, 2012. The event, organized by GIANT campus students, will give PhD students an opportunity to meet with industry professionals. Some 50 volunteers from businesses like Crocus Technology, bioMérieux, and Soitec participated in the 2011 JSIAM.
The morning session will feature presentations about the role of PhDs in today’s businesses. Next, the Midi MINATEC brown bag lunch talk will showcase the video CVs of participating PhD students. Then, over sandwiches, participating professionals will get a chance to meet our PhD students and discover their poster CVs, which will be on display. The afternoon session will be devoted to panel discussions.
