Each semester, IBS offers a variety of interdisciplinary training opportunities open to Institute graduate students and postdocs as well as others.

Graduate training events and groups, such as student-run dissertation writing groups and workshops, support the development of students in the areas of research, funding, professionalization, interdisciplinary research, and networking. Events and groups vary by year and are driven in part by student demand.

Annual Meeting of IBS Students and Postdocs

Each fall, IBS-affiliated students and postdocs meet with the Institute Director and Training Director to get information and share feedback. An anonymous survey in spring is another opportunity for students and postdocs to give feedback about the training program.

Conference Preparation Opportunities

Through workshops and other events that may arise driven by student demand, the Institute helps students prepare for conference and poster presentations. A regular session of the Interdisciplinary Graduate Professional Socialization Seminar prepares students to make the most of professional conferences beyond their presentations.

End-of-Year Poster Symposium

This poster session showcases our student/postdoc research in an Institute-wide event and provides an opportunity to win an outstanding poster prize. IBS sponsors printing of black and white posters.

For more information on the end-of-year poster symposium, contact carew.boulding@colorado.edu.

Topical Workshops and Groups

The interdisciplinary Population and Health Workshop meets biweekly in the Institute, giving students and postdocs the opportunity to share their research in progress with students, postdocs, and faculty in the area. Other workshops, reading groups, and writing groups form based on student demand.

For more information about the Population and Health Workshop, contact justin.vinneau@colorado.edu.

All Experiences Considered Seminar

A series that calls attention to, and provides a space for discussion of, often overlooked or under-discussed topics and concerns among graduate students. These topics frequently extend beyond the realm of traditional professionalization seminars into issues such as mental health, gendered concerns in the workplace, and navigating graduate school as a minority or first-generation student.

For more information on the All Experiences Considered seminar, contact Kim.Truong-Vu@colorado.edu.
