EEB 5895: Invest Sp Topics

This page lists weekly meetings of the Rubega/Elphick/Tingley labs. Students (grads and undergrads) who are doing research in our labs and who are able to attend on a regular basis should sign up for 1 credit to participate in this class. Grad students doing research are expected to present at least once a semester; if time permits, twice may be possible. At least one presentation should be an update of some part of your research (the other can be on whatever is helpful to you with your research - a paper from the literature, stats questions, practice talk, etc., etc.). Undergraduates and BS/MS students should expect to present something on their research once a semester (perhaps sharing a session with another student). Undergraduates will need a permission number to enroll; please contact Margaret, Morgan, or Chris (depending on who your adviser is).

Please note that the goal of these sessions is for EVERYONE to be engaged and participate in a discussion of the topic at hand. Those of us on the faculty side have a tendency to ramble on and dominate the conversation. We'll try not to do this. Students should come ready to contribute to the conversation every week. If you're new to the group don't worry about asking "dumb questions". They're often the most important ones as they either make the rest of us think about things that we've got complacent about or they show us that we're not communicating things very well.

Meeting time: Tuesdays 10 - 11:30

Location: BioPharmacy 2nd floor fish bowl (PBB 203)

If you have other ideas for things worth discussing (especially relating to professional development), please talk to Margaret or Chris. Past topics that we have discussed include: how to put together a CV for grad schools/job applications, ethics in research, how to write proposals, the mechanics of managing research funds, etc., etc.

Graduate students can sign up to present by logging in to EEBedia and just editing this page. Undergraduates should talk to Margaret, Morgan, or Chris.

If there is a published paper to read, please put in a link to it. Note, that the actual papers probably will not be accessible unless you are on a computer connected to the UConn network (you can connect from any computer using uconn vpn and your netID).

If the date you want is already taken and it says in the notes that it is OK to switch to another date, go ahead and do so (but don't switch someone to a date when they say they will not be there .. and double-check with them that the switch is OK).
