Subject: Grad Students Needed & Negotiating A Job Offer

Hi Drs. Sun, Rosenberger, and Lee,


I hope this finds you doing well! I wanted to pop in and tell you about the new, free NISS Graduate Student Network! We hope this GS Network turns into a spot where they can meet up with their peers and create connections from different academic institutions. The website is up and running and they are off to a fun start from what I see and hear! They have a social this coming Friday, so if you know any grad students who may be interested, please feel free to forward this to them. We hope they can join us at…


NISS Graduate Student Network Winter Social

Friday, February 12, 2021    3pm EST (12pm PST)

This network has been created especially for graduate students at NISS Affiliate departments or institutions, but please be aware that some of the meetings/socials, etc. will be open to all (like this one!).

Sorry for the short notice! But I will try to make up for being so ill-timed,…here is another coming NISS event with a bit more lead time that might interest students too! “How to Negotiate a Job Offer& this one will be headlined by Richard De Veaux, PhD (Williams College), Galin Jones, PhD (University of Minnesota), and Bhramar Mukherjee, PhD (University of Michigan)!
