Graduate school --- and academia, and life --- require balancing many different skills, tasks, and goals. Many of these skills are things you might not have even realized were important when you signed up for grad school, and your advisor probably hasn't had time to explain all of them to you either. These seminars are meant to provide pointers and guidance about these crucial skills. The topics will vary from introductory (e.g., Welcome to grad school) to more advanced (e.g., faculty job search) but everyone in the department are welcome to attend any meeting, including curious undergrads.
The seminars are meant to be very "interactive," with a lot of discussion and Q&A. They will last 60-90 minutes, depending on discussion.
Please send us suggestions for future topics, and feedback on past topics.
All meeting times are Thursdays at 5pm.
