Come to The Sequester: The Future of Science Funding and its Impact on MIT – Students, Faculty, Postdocs, and Research, a panel discussion that will serve as the beginning of a conversation on how the recent sequestration cuts to federal science and the research financial environment will impact students. The event will take place on Monday, May 6th, 2013 from 1:00pm to 2:00pm in MIT Room 56-114. As budgets decrease across the board, most students at MIT, and especially future students at MIT, will be affected. How is this likely to impact universities? How is it likely to impact grants to faculty and support for graduate students and postdocs? What is MIT considering to address these problems? What has already affected MIT researchers? What is the impact likely to be on academic career prospects? Panelists include Dr. Maria Zuber (MIT’s Vice President for Research), Bill Bonvillian (Director, MIT Washington Office), and Samuel Brinton (MIT Student and Executive Director of Stand With Science). Registration is encouraged via CareerBridge.
