Let's Have an Awesome Time Doing Science:Discussions On Getting the Most Out of a Challenging Career

This symposium brings high-profile, thoughtful researchers to speak to students and postdocs on subjects that aren't addressed often enough but are crucial to our development and well-being as scientists. Each speaker (list follows) will highlight one or more of the themes below as a starting point to describing a set of philosophies and approaches to science. This concept has been adapted from a similar event at UC Berkeley's campus.
