A Global Community

  • ISCB Student Council

    dedicated to facilitating development for students and young researchers

  • Affiliated Groups

    The ISCB Affiliates program is designed to forge links between ISCB and regional non-profit membership groups, centers, institutes and networks that involve researchers from various institutions and/or organizations within a defined geographic region involved in the advancement of bioinformatics. Such groups have regular meetings either in person or online, and an organizing body in the form of a board of directors or steering committee. If you are interested in affiliating your regional membership group, center, institute or network with ISCB, please review these guidelines (.pdf) and submit your application using the online ISCB Affiliated Group Application form. Your exploratory questions to ISCB about the appropriateness of a potential future affiliation are also welcome by Diane E. Kovats, ISCB Executive Director (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.).

The CV, the Resume, and the Scientist's Job Search: What to Use, When and Why
Presenter: Joe Tringali
Session Sponsor: FASEB MARC Program

Any job search is, at its very core, a self marketing campaign. The best strategy is one that targets your message to the specific audience in order to help them move your candidacy forward. In this session, we will discuss who the audience may be, the message you might wish to convey, the vehicle in which it is conveyed, and the concept of message consistency. Our objective is to maximize the return you get on your efforts

Sponsors and Exhibitors will get the benefit of complimentary posting(s) with their booths or sponsorship. The packages are listed below.
