The MSUB STEM Seminar Series is designed to offer students an introduction to different STEM fields, a glimpse into original research, and insight into STEM careers. Study Section Instructors attend the Seminar Series lectures and teach a one hour STEM Survival Skills Section to support the lectures and help students acquire the skills they will need to succeed in STEM. Study Section Instructors help students understand the content of the lectures and develop good study skills, learn core lab and data analysis skills, work on group projects, and accompany students on lab and facilities tours.

The ideal candidate is an advanced graduate student or postdoc in a STEM field with teaching experience and a commitment to outreach and diversity. A B.S. or B.A. in a STEM field is required. All candidates will be required to undergo a criminal background check.
