Professional Development

Throughout our program, the transferable skills and global perspective of our trainees are honed through a series of professional development activities. The following opportunities seek to cover the breadth of what it means to be successful professional scientist today. We aspire to develop marketable skills, taking students beyond the traditional technical training paradigm and into a competitive class marked by intellectually flexible and authentic professional confidence.

Each trainee completes at least one off-campus experience with a governmental, business, international  or non-governmental partner. These opportunities provide trainees with skills to translate their research activities on campus to real world problems.

Career Advisement

Our office provides targeted career assistance to trainees seeking employment in either the academic, governmental, or private sector. We offer a range of services to help prepare students maximize their market viability.

Science communication training is provided in partnership with the Grady College of Journalism to foster confidence and clarity of message.

Seminar Series

A bi-annual student-run seminar series provides students with the opportunity to select, invite and host a speaker each semester and participate in a luncheon with the speaker after the seminar.
