Fundamentals of the Bioscience Industry Program is an innovative, one semester, evening program designed to provide students with
a comprehensive understanding of the Bioscience Industry from target identification
through commercial application. This program is targeted toward graduate students
and post docs seeking to facilitate commercial activities within their academic labs
or enhance their knowledge of the commercial sector in order to transition into non-academic
Created by the
Center for Biotechnology, this highly interactive program gives participants the opportunity to gain first-hand
experience in the development of commercialization strategies around real intellectual
property and business issues.
Benefits of the program include:
Increase marketability for participants by expanding their education beyond the typical
Hands on work with technologies to advance an invention through to commercialization
Connections made with industry leaders through on going classroom interaction
Access to a network of over 300 program alumni providing career opportunities, mentoring,
professional development and social interactions

Postdoc slots are free of charge, first come, first served.
The Long Island Science and Engineering Fair (LISEF; www.lisef.org) is in need of
qualified judges (faculty, postdocs, graduate students, engineers with field experience) to
help evaluate approximately 400 student projects in over 22 disciplines. Judges are
typically asked to evaluate and score between 8-12 projects depending on the category. Judges
are needed on either or both days of our fair (Wednesday, February 3rd, 2016 and Thursday,
March 10th, 2016), with the greatest need on the February 3rd date.
Judging the science fair is a great way to interact with aspiring scientists and
engineers and to share your own enthusiasm. It's also a chance to network amongst
the judges with other professionals from across Long Island.
Applications open on November 30th for the L'Oreal Women in Science fellowship program,
which awards five postdoctoral women scientists annually with grants of $60,000 each.
Applicants are selected from a variety of fields, including the life and physical/material
sciences, technology (including computer science), engineering, and mathematics.
The L’Oréal-UNESCO For Women in Science program recognizes and rewards the contributions
women make in STEM fields and identifies exceptional women researchers committed to
serving as role models for younger generations.

Postdocs recruited for NASA-funded study of stress in high achievers
We are seeking graduate and post-graduate Science, Engineering, Education, and Training
(STEM) trainees for a research study that examines the relationship between personality,
brain functioning, and stress. The study involves a 2 hour in-person visit to Stony
Brook University campus for a self-report,biological, and behavioral assessment. Then,
you will be asked to complete monthly 30-minute web-based follow-ups over the next
5 months. The research is funded by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration
(NASA), and your participation may help NASA improve selection of astronaut candidates for
successful long-duration space flight (i.e., travel to Mars). You can earn up to $100
for your participation.
If you’re interested, please contact Fran Ferayorni at stonybrookSTAR@gmail.com or
