  • NLSEB Junior Board successfully organized the first rotating lab visit!

On December 9th, the NLSEB Junior Board organized the first lab rotation event for evolutionary biologists at GELIFES in Groningen. Many enthusiastic participants listened to fascinating talks of PI and PhD speakers of GELIFES, got behind-the-scenes insights of the facilities, and socialized over lunch and drinks afterwards. A successful start of a series of lab rotations in the future! 

  • NLSEB Junior Board comes to town

First rotating lab visit 9 Dec! Save the date! On December 9th, the Junior Board of NLSEB organizes its first rotating lab visit at Groningen! The rotating lab visit is a fun event/meeting where you can showcase and learn about research in the NLSEB community (i.e. with topics relating to evolution) at different universities around the Netherlands. We kick off this series in Groningen (GELIFES), which harbours many diverse labs with exciting research. For a full afternoon (13.00 - 17.00) we plan to alternate between scientific talks given by senior and junior speakers as well as tours through some of GELIFES research facilities. To further get to know your peers, we also plan for a social gathering in the form of a borrel. More information will soon follow!

 

  • NLSEB round table on education in evolutionary biology in Jan 2023

25 January 2023, we organize a round table afternoon on education in evolutionary biology at Utrecht University. The aim will be to identify knowledge gaps in current bachelor courses in evolutionary biology at Dutch universities, and to develop ideas for short shared knowledge clips to fill these gaps. If you are interested, please register via this link before 10 January!
