Gordon Research Seminars

For Students, by Students...

GRC provides many opportunities for early-career scientists to get involved at the Frontiers of Science, the most notable of which is the Gordon Research Seminar (GRS) program. Gordon Research Seminars are a series of highly successful and unique meetings that enable young researchers to share in the GRC experience. Each seminar is held in conjunction with a related GRC and begins the weekend immediately prior to the GRC. Graduate students, post-docs, and other scientists with comparable levels of experience and education come together in a highly-stimulating and non-intimidating environment to discuss their current research and build informal networks with their peers that may lead to a lifetime of collaboration and scientific achievement. These seminars are organized by young investigators with the support of leading scientists from the associated GRC. The majority, if not all, of the GRS participants are expected to participate in the following GRC.

The Benefits of a GRS:

  • Network with your peers in an informal atmosphere
  • Engage in scientific discussions at the forefront of your field
  • Interact with leaders who may serve as mentors during your career
  • Gain the confidence to participate in a Gordon Research Conference - apply to both the GRS & GRC

Contribute to a GRS:

  • Submit an abstract - abstracts are used to select speakers
  • Present a poster and get valuable feedback and suggestions

The Kenan Institute for Engineering, Technology & Science at NC State University provides seed money to a limited number of new Gordon Research Seminars each year. Together with the Kenan Institute, GRC is very excited to invite young scientists to take part in this unique opportunity.

Gordon Research Conferences

Student participation is not limited to Gordon Research Seminars. Gordon Research Conferences (GRC) also offer an exciting opportunity for early-career scientists to get involved at the Frontiers of Science. Attendees are not only able to discuss the progress of unpublished research with leaders in their field, but they also have the opportunity to network with scientists from around the world. Young investigators are welcome and encouraged to attend any Gordon Research Conference, not just those held in conjunction with a related Gordon Research Seminar.

The Benefits of a GRC:

  • Meet face-to-face with leaders in the scientific community and discuss research and networking opportunities

Contribute to a GRC:

  • Present a poster and get valuable feedback and suggestions
  • Chairs often select student abstracts or posters for an oral presentation during one of the science sessions
