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!
