International Scholars and the American Lab: Challenges and Assumptions with Prof. Marvin Chun, Ph.D.
Wednesday, February 12, 2014 at 5:30 PM (EST)
New Haven, CT
Professor Chun will address some of the typical expectations that exist in the research work place between PI and researcher, and the hierarchy of researchers in the group. How do you advance? When should you expect to publish? How do you know if the research group is functioning normally or not? Added to this is the occasional challenge or assumption that comes from the international scholar perhaps not being as familiar with American work-place norms. When you register for this event we encourage you to submit a question. OISS will gather the questions to give them to Professor Chun anonymously. Professor Chun will also take questions from the audience.
