Interdisciplinary Graduate Student Recruitment Event Set for Feb. 28

February 24, 2014

MISSOULA – The second annual interdisciplinary graduate student recruitment event will be held Friday, Feb. 28, at the University of Montana.

The event invites graduate applicants to explore five UM graduate programs: chemistry; cellular, molecular and microbial biology; biochemistry and biophysics; neuroscience; and biomedical and pharmaceutical sciences.

The all-day event begins at 10:30 a.m. in the University Center Room 326 and will feature oral research presentations from outstanding faculty and students, a luncheon and graduate student poster session. Each program also will have activities throughout the afternoon, and an evening reception in The Payne Family Native American Center will follow.

Last year’s recruitment event drew more than 25 talented applicants from across the country, many of whom joined one of the participating graduate programs. The interdisciplinary graduate student recruiting events are sponsored by UM’s Center for Biomolecular Structure and Dynamics, the Division of Biological Sciences, the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry, the Department of Biomedical and Pharmaceutical Sciences and the Office of the Vice President of Research and Creative Scholarship.
