Nominations for 2016 Grad Hosted Speaker

The time has come for nominations for the 2016 grad hosted speaker!

Suggestions are welcome for both academic and non-academic speakers. Speakers may discuss their research or career and teach skills/share wisdom in workshops on topics broadly relevant to grad students, including science communication/journalism, project management, career advice, science policy/advocacy, etc.

To give you an idea of the speakers chosen in the past here is a list from recent years:

2015 - Tyrone Hayes
2014 - Marc Mangel
2013 - Nancy Baron
2012 - Daniel Pauly

Nominations will be open until July 1, 2015, followed by a vote on the nominees.

If you wish to nominate someone, please email Dan Greenberg with a brief synopsis of your nominee in .pdf form; being sure to include their name, contact information, and a brief paragraph on what they do, their interests, and why you think they would be a good speaker for the grad students in the department.

Bear in mind that if you do choose to nominate a speaker, you will be expected to serve on the grad hosted speaker committee.
