Flyer for the Graduate Student Plant Science Symposium

On behalf of the Purdue Graduate Student Plant Science Symposium planning committee, I am reaching out to invite you to take part in our FREE symposium, titled Plant Science Careers: Thinking Outside the Box on November 18th, 2022. This event is planned by graduate students in the Purdue College of Agriculture and sponsored by Corteva Agriscience.

Held both on Purdue’s campus and virtually, we hope this opportunity is of interest to your community.

The symposium will include:

  • Speakers from various jobs in the realm of plant science.
  • A 3 Minute Lightning Talk competition, with prizes for each category. Submissions are open to all undergraduates, graduate students, and post docs that attend a college/university in the United States.
  • A Career Panel to discuss navigating obscure career paths.
  • A Networking Session, held in person.
