In partnership with Science Atlantic, we bring you the Women in Science (WIS) Speaker Tour. The purpose of the WIS Speaker Tour is to showcase the research conducted by early-career female faculty (Assistant level) in Atlantic Canada. Female faculty represent only about 25-30% of all faculty in the physical and life sciences, mathematics, and computer sciences in Canada but are important role models for female students in science.
A different scientific discipline will be featured in each speaker tour. Two tours will be run per academic year, with each speaker visiting two or more Science Atlantic member institutions. At least one of these talks will be a public talk.
The following disciplines will be considered for tours:
