Student Council Symposium

Bioinformatics career path AKES at ISMB 2015

Every year at its annual symposium, the ISCB Student Council organises 'Career Central' to present discussions, opinions and talks related to careers in bioinformatics. This year at ISMB/ECCB 2015, we are collaborating with the Junior PI group and COBE COSI on an AKES workshop dedicated to career development (AKES 06). This workshop will be of interest to a wide audience, from students and junior PIs, looking for new ways to build their careers, to senior faculty, looking for advice on how to mentor your students and get the best out of them.

The Student Council is proud to be organising the first session “Improving your elevator pitch” presented by Dr Mick Watson, Director of ARK-Genomics, The Roslin Institute, University of Edinburgh, UK. (@BioMickWatson).

Learn more about Mick Watson on his website (http://www.roslin.ed.ac.uk/mick-watson/) or at his blog ‘opiniomics' (https://biomickwatson.wordpress.com).

You’ve just bumped into the person who could decide your next career move. They are about to head to their next meeting and you have two minutes to convince them that your science is worthy. Can you do it?
In this session you will learn the theory behind how to deliver a great elevator pitch. You will then get the opportunity to put this theory to the test, honing and practicing your pitch with other audience members so that the next time you hop in an elevator, you will be ready.

Mark the date and time - July 11, 1:30pm. Hope to see you all there!
