The organizers of the Junior Scientist and Industry Annual Meeting (JSIam) announced at the end of January that they would make the March 11 event 100% virtual. The purpose of JSIam is to raise up-and-coming research scientists’ awareness of the career opportunities available to them outside of government research. The event is intended primarily for third-year PhD students. However, all junior scientists from GIANT laboratories and companies are welcome to attend.
Around 100 PhD students are expected, and more than 30 companies have already RSVP’d, evidence of their interest in GIANT researchers and JSIam. The day’s program features a keynote speaker, ten workshops (on entrepreneurship, CV/résumé writing, networking, and more) and a speed networking session that will give participating junior scientists and business people a chance to talk one-on-one.
