In most STEM-related disciplines, a period of postdoctoral training is expected after earning the PhD degree. What are the expectations? How long should a post-doc last? What should you look for and how do you find that perfect post-doc position? These questions and others will be addressed as we examine the sometimes mysterious world of post-doctoral training. Graduate students interested in attending can register and find more info on the PLAN website.

Talks

4.) Meet the Professor: Exploring an Ancient Mayan Atlantis

Sept. 4, noon to 1 p.m., University Club

$14 per person/$7 students—check or cash, includes lunch. Reservations required

The College of Arts and Sciences presents monthly lunch and lecture series titled "Meet the Professor." This month, John Hale, archaeologist and Director of  Liberal Studies, and Robert Forbes, Director of the Center for Geographic Information Sciences, will talk about their work on ancient Maya ruins in Lake Atitlàn, Guatemala.  Two thousand years ago, Lake Atitlàn was home to a religious center where Maya pilgrims crossed the water in canoes and offered sacrifices on a circular volcanic island.  Eventually, rising lake levels submerged this unique site, but the new maps and research allow us to reconstruct its history for the first time.

Additional Information: Make reservations or contact Janna Tajibaeva, 852-2247.
