Soft AE trainees meet monthly around topics meant to support their professional development and range of academic and career interests. Skill-building workshops that focus on scientific writing and other important tools for success will be offered. Soft AE Fellows also are offered support to enable Immersive Experiences in environments outside of Penn that will facilitate their research or professional advancement.
If you are a Penn graduate student and would like to be notified when Soft AE programming is open to the general graduate student or postdoctoral population, please send your contact information to firstname.lastname@example.org.
