2022 Joint Biological Sciences Graduate Student Recruitment Poster Session

The Center for Ecology and the Environment and Department of Integrative Biology will sponsor the 2022 Joint Biological Sciences Graduate Student Recruitment Poster Session on Thursday, February 10, 2022, from 3 to 5 p.m. The event will be held in Great Hall (fourth floor), Memorial Union.

Faculty are encouraged to bring their top prospective graduate students to this event. Current graduate students, faculty, and staff are invited to present their latest research.

Register by January 31

Please join us for this annual event, which welcomes our community and prospective graduate students from all fields of the life sciences including cell and developmental biology, conservation and management, ecology, evolution and systematics, neurobiology, and more. We look forward to seeing all of you at the poster session.

If you have any questions, please contact Kyle Webert at webert@wisc.edu.

Important Details

  • Please register as soon as possible.
  • We strongly encourage current graduate students and postdocs to present a poster at this event.
  • Please attend and/or present even if you are not recruiting students for your lab.
  • Faculty who are recruiting students will register their prospective students in the online form.

Poster Presenters

You are free to reuse posters you have made for other scientific meetings or events, so there are no restrictions on poster sizes or layout, but oversized posters will not fit on the boards. Posters must be brought to the Great Hall in Memorial Union between 2 and 2:30 p.m. on Thursday, February 10, so they can be hung prior to the event. If you cannot bring your poster to Great Hall during this time, please bring it to Kyle Webert in 238 Birge Hall no later than 4 p.m. on February 9. Poster presenters should plan to be near their poster during the event to talk with students and answer questions about their research.

Informational Slides

We will be projecting a rotating slideshow at the event, which will include informational slides on campus resources, departments and labs related to the biological sciences (e.g., the UW Herbarium, the UW Arboretum, and different labs) that would be of interest to prospective students. If you would like to contribute to this slide show, please send a single informational slide to Kyle Webert at webert@wisc.edu by 4 p.m. on February 9.
