ACAD research day: Wednesday 8th, August, 2018
Open to Science undergraduate students | 3pm-6pm

ACAD is one of the University's largest and most high-profile science research groups, and we are opening our doors once again (following our successful inaugural open day in 2017) to undergraduate science students and science educators.

Come along to:

  • Meet real, world-leading researchers
  • Discuss careers in science
  • Find an Honours supervisor and project
  • Apply for summer research scholarships at ACAD
  • Free Pizza and Drinks!

We work in the lab, out in the field, on museum specimens, and spend lots of hours working on computational algorithums - this is a great opportunity to learn what goes on behind the lecture/tutorial scene!
