About the Podcast
Scientists in Training is a monthly science communication podcast giving you our inside experiences in academia. On the first of every month our scientists share the tools, personal experiences, and advice for interested and new scientists when entering academia. We hope to provide open and honest conversations around the scientific issues of today and our experiences in academia.
