Register for MCB295 2019 with course #: 20029
MCB 295 is a career and professional development seminar series for life science PhDs organized by students in the Department of Molecular and Cell Biology at the University of California, Berkeley. Each weekly session features a panel of speakers from a variety of careers who share their post-PhD paths. In addition, we host workshops on topics in career development, including networking, resume building, interview techniques, and negotiation skills. To receive weekly updates about our events, sign up for our mailing list at the bottom of the page. We meet every Monday evening in the spring semester between 6:00-7:30pm in Barker 101 on the UC Berkeley campus. Our full schedule can be found here. Everyone is welcome to our seminars, but we ask that UC Berkeley students register for the course on CalCentral so that we can maintain an official headcount (and have leverage when asking for funding!) - use the CCN 20029, and choose the S/U option.
Course Organizers: Spring 2018
Tomer Langberg is a 4th year MCB neurobiology graduate student in Dan Feldman's lab, where he studies how changes to excitatory and inhibitory synapses affect sensory processing. Outside of recording brain activity, Tomer mentors several undergraduates in the lab, has consulted for biotech through BCBA, and is slowly but surely becoming a guitar legen
Justin Zhang is a 4th year MCB PhD student in Roberto Zoncu's lab. Throughout his graduate career he has served as an Amgen Scholars graduate assistant and as a BBS divisional student representative. He is currently also the co-president of the Graduate Student and Alumni Association for MCB. Justin is interested in a career in management consulting after finishing graduate school and has served in a consulting role for a project through Biotech Connection Bay Area. Justin is passionate about career paths for life science Ph.Ds and is excited to organize MCB295 this spring.
MCB 295 would not be possible without funding from these generous sponsors. If you're interested in helping the next generation of graduate students find their places in life, we would love to hear from you! We accept donations in money, food, as well as other forms of moral support.
