It is a great opportunity for graduate students and postdocs interested in science communication and in sharing their work with an international audience of students, scientists, and educators. The YSS is a collaboration between the Albert and Mary Lasker Foundation, the Alan Alda Center for Communicating Science at Stony Brook University, and iBiology.
Participants in the YSS must apply to be selected. PhD candidates or postdocs with an interesting research story and good presentation skills are eligible to apply. Four winners will attend a multi-day workshop in San Francisco led by the Alan Alda Center for Communicating Science, a leading organization in training scientists to give effective talks, in collaboration with iBiology. After this training, the selected scientists will record their 30-minute talks in a green screen studio, which will be posted on iBiology.org as part of a the Young Scientist Seminars. The winners will also receive a $500 honorarium.
