What I got from my undergraduate degree was a lot of knowledge about biology but not a lot of hands-on skills. I got those from taking field courses and working as a research assistant. BMSC has just opened registration for a field skills training course, which will run from February 8-11 and 15-18, 2014. You’ll learn field skills that will make you more competitive when hunting for jobs as a summer field assistant plus you’ll meet some folks at BMSC who can help you find those opportunities. Check out the flyer below and visit the BMSC web page for the course for registration information.
