The Origins of Life Initiative has launched a new program for Harvard graduate students, the Origins of Life Graduate Consortium. This is a certificate program designed to give graduate students broad, interdisciplinary exposure to this new research field. The program explores the fundamental questions and offers students a flexible multi-year experience in the laboratory, classroom, and field tailored to their interests and to their particular graduate program.
Benefits and opportunities include:
Connecting and growing with a select and vibrant group of faculty and postdoctoral researchers
Strengthening your knowledge and achievements in your major area of concentration
- Participating in Consortium-sponsored field expeditions and trips
- Building your professional skills in delivering talks, designing posters, public speaking, etc. (publications support available)
Engaging in research outside your major area of concentration through rotating laboratory assignments
Shaping a peer cohort interested in and actively pursuing origins of life science
