Who We Are

Women in Science is a UC Berkeley-based student-run group that brings together graduate students, post-doctoral fellows, and faculty members for monthly meetings. Through informal discussions, presentations, and workshops, we discuss topics relating to success both in graduate school and in future careers.

Some recent meetings have focused on advice on giving an excellent job talk, writing a grant, obtaining dual faculty hires, negotiating, promoting confidence, mentoring, and exploring alternative careers to academia.

We intersperse informational meetings with informal discussions with distinguished UC Berkeley faculty members.

All are welcome! Please check this website for information on upcoming meetings.
