Programs we don't have formally, but might easily encourage

  • career mentoring with our graduate and undergraduate students
  • lunchtime chats with students
  • Career Fair in atriummini job fairs in the atrium

IU Biology faculty are available to serve as speakers for classroom visits.

Many of our scientists contribute their time and expertise to WonderLab, Bloomington's museum of science, health and technology.  Recent WonderLab projects involving IU biologists  include....
