iBiology, which generally features research talks by well-known senior scientists, is expanding its focus to highlight the work of outstanding young scientists. PhD candidates or postdocs with an interesting research story and good presentation skills are encouraged to apply. Four winners will attend a two-day workshop at the Alan Alda Center for Communicating Science at Stony Brook University, a leading organization in training scientists to give effective talks. After this training, the selected scientists will record their 30-minute talks in a green screen studio. The talks will be posted on iBiology.org as part of a new Young Scientist Seminar Series. For young scientists, this is a unique opportunity to showcase your work!

Great opportunity to showcase scientific work and improve science communication skills! Deadline is February 1st.
