UPCOMING SEMINARS

Wednesday 8 April, 2020 12:15-1:15 ET

“An Assistant Professor’s Guide to Writing a Scientific Review Paper”

Speaker: Dr. Lee-Hwa Tai

Writing a scientific review paper is a big job and requires breakdown of the tasks.  Most graduate students will benefit from writing a review paper on their subject matter during their academic studies.  This webinar will provide you with the basic tools to start reading and writing! Dr. Lee-Hwa Tai will also start the webinar with a biography and description of her career trajectory. We hope the Q&A will be an informal opportunity to ask questions about not only review writing, but also career-related questions.
