Application deadlines vary by meeting. See descriptions for more details.
Intended for graduate students and postdocs, and organized by Loren Looger, Eric Schreiter, Luke Lavis and Lin Tian, this workshop will cover aspects of modern protein engineering, particularly as it pertains to making tools for biology. Examples include genetically encoded sensors for molecules or cellular states; light-, temperature-, or ligand-gated effectors of cell state; fluorescent proteins; labels for light or electron microscopy; tools for improving the performance and/or analysis of next-generation sequencing; viruses or other transgene delivery agents, etc.View Full Details
Although registration for this workshop is ongoing, we are keeping a close eye on the COVID-19 situation and will keep all applicants informed of any changes to the status of the workshop or the application period.

Organized by Hannah Haberkern, Gowan Tervo, Michael Reiser, Emily Dennis, Alla Karpova, Josh Dudman, and Vivek Jayaraman, this Junior Scientist Workshop provides an exciting opportunity for graduate students and recent PhDs interested in the mechanistic basis of cognition to present their research to a diverse audience and discuss ideas for the future, while also discovering potential independent early-career options at Janelia. Due to the ongoing concerns surrounding COVID-19, this 2020 workshop will shift to a virtual but still highly interactive format.View Full Details
