The Young Scientist Seminars (YSS) is a video series produced by iBiology that features young scientists giving talks about their research and discoveries. It is a great opportunity for PhD students and postdocs in the biological sciences who are interested in science communication and in sharing their work with an international audience of students, scientists, and educators. The YSS is a collaboration between the Albert and Mary Lasker Foundation, the Alan Alda Center for Communicating Science at Stony Brook University, and iBiology.
Participants in the 2019 YSS must apply to be selected. Four winners will attend a multi-day workshop in San Francisco led by iBiology, in collaboration with the Alan Alda Center for Communicating Science, a leading organization in training scientists to give effective talks. After this training, the selected winners record their 30-minute talks in a green screen studio, which are posted on iBiology.org as part of the Young Scientist Seminars. The winners will also receive a $500 honorarium.More information about the 2019 YSS and application details can be found at: http://bit.ly/ibio-young-scientist. Applications are open until December 17, 2018. To watch the videos of the Young Scientist Seminars please visit: bit.ly/youngscisem
