This January, tune into January@GSAS — a flexible series of events designed to help you acquire essential research and professional skills, prepare for your career, master some new interests, or just relax and have fun.
Although your research never takes a break, January is one time of year when things slow down. There are no classes, no teaching, no grading — a good time to turn attention to your own professional and personal development. Learn to write a fellowship proposal. Craft a powerful CV. Prepare for a job talk. Go deep into the latest analytical tools. Or relax, take it slow(er), and learn something entirely unrelated to your daily grind. It’s winter break, GSAS style.
January 14–25, 2013
