​We would like to invite you to attend the inaugural student and postdoc-led "Red Sea Research Center Open Science Conference 2017", held on the 24th and 25th of October (Tue/Wed).

This conference aims to provide a low-stress and friendly platform for all RSRC students, postdocs, research technicians and research scientists to showcase their work (at varying stages of completion and/or success). These student talks are punctuated by other exciting events: there will be a poster session, a workshop for in-kingdom and out-of-kingdom job opportunities, and a keynote talk at the start of each session. The keynote speakers are luminaries in marine sciences:

1. Prof. Terry Hughes, James Cook University
2. John Gunn, Australian Institute of Marine Science
3. Prof. Madeleine van Oppen, University of Melbourne
4. Prof. Curtis Suttle, University of British Columbia
5. Prof. Jack Middelburg, Utrecht University

We would like to also highlight the in-kingdom and out-of-kingdom job opportunities workshop (October 25, 3:15 to 5:15 p.m.), where invited panelists would share their experience and expertise in non-academia jobs.

A full description of the event and the full agenda can be found here.
