Hello STR Members,
We have several exciting events planned for February, including the start of our Meet a Theory series, continuing Meet a Method sessions and our first debate. In addition, we are offering events focused on teaching core strategy, the pros and cons of post-docs and writing reviews.
We hope to see you at these events – Zoom registration information is available in the links for each virtual event listed below (in addition to being posted on the STR calendar). We will also record these sessions and make them available on our YouTube and BiliBili channels and in podcast form for those unable to attend the events.
To stay informed of these and future events, please visit our webpage calendar, and/or any of our STR social media accounts.
