 QB3 - California Institute for Quantitative Biosciences

QB3-Berkeley, VSPA, and Grad Division invite you to participate in our first ever STEM PhD Leadership & Community Expo (SPLiCE), taking place on March 19, 2019, 6pm in Stanley Hall. SPLiCE is a new event with the aim of connecting Berkeley’s graduate and postdoc scientists in an environment which will foster engagement and new opportunities.

Why should you attend SPLiCE? Because at this unique event, you can...

Learn about the work of Berkeley groups & get inspired. There will be tables and posters, and group leaders ready to chat with you about benefits of joining & how participation might contribute to your career and academic success. It is super time-efficient – instead of going to different events to learn about groups, you can connect with them all in one place

Network with STEM PhDs who share interests, while enjoying food/refreshments
