The Banff International Research Station (BIRS) has launched a Career & Innovation Hub running from October 16, 2020 to March 2021. The program is in partnership with the Atlantic Association for Research in the Mathematical Sciences (AARMS), Canadian Society of Applied and Industrial Mathematics (CAIMS), Data Science Nexus, University of Alberta, University of British Columbia, University of Manitoba, and the University of New Brunswick.
The Career & Innovation Hub is an online series of monthly seminars and workshops culminating in a three-day virtual career fair in March. The program’s aim is to bring our upcoming math science workforce together with science and technology companies in emerging fields. Students will learn how their expertise is suited to today’s job market and what employers are seeking when hiring employees with mathematical, statistical, and computational backgrounds.
Each month’s event will be based on a subject of interest in the current hiring landscape, featuring talks from industry and academic leaders. Participants will have opportunities to interact with the speakers in Q&A and workshop settings.
