Are you a graduate student or postdoc in any field of biology with a compelling research story that you want to share with the world? Do you want to learn how to give one of the best science talks of your career?
The Young Scientist Seminars (YSS) is a video series produced by iBiology that features early-career scientists giving talks about their research and discoveries. As with all iBiology videos, the YSS videos are freely available online and widely viewed by an international audience of students, scientists, educators, and the public.
U.S. and international pre-doctoral graduate students (i.e. PhD candidates) and post-doctoral fellows in any field of the biological sciences are eligible to apply. Although you are not required to be a PhD candidate to be eligible to apply, your research story should be close to publication or have been recently published to be considered

During the workshop, they will make improvements to their 30-minute research talks;
- At the end of the workshop week, winners will record their improved 30-minute research talks in iBiology’s green screen studio. Studio-recorded talks will be posted on the iBiology website as part of the Young Scientist Seminars.
