Join us for the October webinar entitled Being a Young Risk Scientist on Wednesday, October 6, 2021 from 11AM – 12PM EST.

This webinar will tell a story of becoming, being, and developing as a young risk scientist. Roger Flage will discuss is current job tasks in detail: Managing and developing a master’s program in risk analysis and creating a personal research agenda on risk science. Key questions that will be addressed include: How does the students’ interest match the goals of the program and professors? What are important experiences and strategic challenges associated with running such a program? How have I found that risk science is perceived by research colleagues from other fields and sciences, and how does this influence interdisciplinary collaboration? How to think when identifying and pursuing research topics with the aim of contributing to risk science?

This webinar will end with some thoughts on the prospects of creating a career as a young risk scientist.
