The professional development seminar is a seminar for advanced (= third year
and above) graduate students and postdocs. It focuses on ALL issues of
relevant to young mathematicians.
Among the topics we may discuss: preparing application materials, career options outside academia, using TeX and TeX packages, mathematical writing,
creating webpages, creating blogs, time management, preparing and giving
and general discussions about doing
research. The organizers are Radu Laza and Christian Schnell.
On this page, you can find a collection of resources for the seminar.
