9th Student Council Symposium 2013
Submitted by uknandal2011 on March 10, 2013 - 5:23pm.
The ISCB Student Council Symposium will be held on July 19th (directly preceding ISMB/ECCB 2013) in Berlin, Germany.
The Student Council Symposium is a forum for students, post docs, and young researchers in the fields of Computational Biology and Bioinformatics. Participants have the opportunity to present their work to an international audience, build a network within the computational biology community and develop important soft skills in an environment that fosters exchange of ideas and knowledge.
Transitioning from Post-doc to (junior) PI is a major step in the scientific career ladder bringing new challenges to the scientist. Key among these challenges is moving from a single project-based responsibility to being responsible for the projects of students, technicians, and postdocs. On top of this, the researcher is expected to be a successful grant writer, a human resources manager, an engaging speaker, etc.
