For entomology students making the move to science careers, this time of transition can pose a variety of new challenges. New doctoral graduate Lina Bernaola shares her experience as she steps into the next stage as an early-career professional.
Meet Alejandro Del Pozo-Valdivia, Ph.D., IPM entomology advisor at the University of California Cooperative Extension, connector of grower and research communities, and subject of the next installment of our "Standout Early Career Professionals" series.
Meet Tolulope Morawo, Ph.D., postdoctoral fellow at Auburn University, insect chemical ecologist, and the subject of the next installment of our "Standout Early Career Professionals" Series.
Entomology students face plenty of pressure, from conducting research to getting published to presenting at conferences. And, perhaps most daunting: embarking upon a career after graduation. Ph.D. student Lina Bernaola calls the stress of the final stages of academic coursework "graduphobia."
Entomologists Ashley Kennedy and Lina Bernaola participated in the 2018 March for Science in Washington, DC, on April 14. Kennedy and Bernaola say that, though the March was smaller than the 2017 edition, it left them inspired to "continue taking steps forward to enhance advocacy for science."
Every year, students and professionals in entomology present their research at the Entomological Society of America's Annual Meeting. It's a chance to share the latest updates from their work with an audience of fellow experts in insect science, and, with a little preparation, it doesn't have to be a nerve-racking experience.
Lauren Diepenbrock, Ph.D., a postdoctoral researcher at North Carolina State University and soon to be an assistant professor at the University of Florida, says she enjoys "figuring out how insects, particularly invasive species, make use of the available resources to be successful."
Editor’s Note: As Entomology 2017 approaches, today we continue with the second in a five-part “Students at #EntSoc17” series on Entomology Today, in which members of ESA’s Student Affairs Committee share […]
