    Recap of March Open House Weekends

    April 5th, 2013 in Academics.

    Thank you to everyone who participated in the Open House events last month. By all accounts, the new approach the department has taken in scheduling and organizing visits for prospective students was very successful, and much of the positive feedback was undoubtedly due at least in part to their interaction with current students. We hope that everyone’s semester is going well!

    In similar style to the Academic Career Night held in October, this panel forum will provide graduate students interested in careers in industry an opportunity to hear from and ask questions of engineers and researchers employed in various capacities at Boston-area companies. Panelists will represent an array of careers in biotech, medical device, and nonprofit companies. Both experienced veterans and newer hires will give their perspectives, giving BU BME students an opportunity to explore both near-term and long-range career topics.

    Join us for this exciting and informative event!

    Come to Academic Career Night on November 13th!

    November 6th, 2012 in Professional Development.

    Are you wondering how to find a job in academia after grad school?  Want to hear some advice from young professors who recently went through the process?  Then come to the Biomedical Engineering Graduate Student Committee’s (BME GSC) first Academic Career Night!

    The focus of the Academic Career Night is to allow graduate students interested in academia a chance to ask questions to current academic professionals about how they reached where they are in their careers.  The event will consist of two panels of academic professionals: one with more experienced researchers/professors and one with more junior researchers/assistant professors.  The idea is that the more senior researchers can discuss what they look for in Post-Doc candidates and how they can help refer their current students to other labs, while the more junior faculty can discuss the process they more recently went through to get their positions and what they learned from the experience.

    • When: Tuesday, November 13th at 6 PM
    • Where: Colloquium Room on the 9th Floor of the BU Photonics Building at 8 St. Mary’s St
