Graduate Student & Postdoctoral Mailing List
Our mailing list is a forum for C-DEBI and non-C-DEBI graduate students and postdocs to discuss topics pertaining to their research, professional development, and employment/fellowship opportunities. Join the gang of hundreds by sending your request to C-DEBI Education & Diversity Director Gwen Noda (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Professional Development Webinars
In addition to providing training in state-of-the-art technologies and instrumentation for graduate students and beyond, we emphasize professional development training targeting skills needed both in and out of academia. These live interactive webinars provide transferable skills for all early career scientists and will be archived on the website for those unable to “attend” the live events.
Networked Speaker Series
C-DEBI is a “networked” Science and Technology Center, gathering expertise, ideas, and participation from institutions across the U.S. and around the world. C-DEBI runs the Networked Speaker Series as one means to enhance communication and the exchange of ideas via short (30 minute) presentations with time for questions and discussion. The series is presented live online for remote participants, and is recorded and available on the website for those unable to “attend” the live events.
SoCal Geobiology Symposium
The Southern California Geobiology Symposium is an annual student-run event designed to bring geobiologists together to discuss current research and build local collaborations. It is an opportunity for undergraduate students, graduate students and postdocs to present geobiological research in the form of oral and poster presentations. The topics presented span various disciplines including geology, geochemistry, astrobiology, microbiology, oceanography, paleobiology/-ecology and environmental sciences. With sponsorship by C-DEBI, the symposium is hosted in rotation by USC, Caltech and UC Riverside.
