Our second annual student workshop, on nonacademic jobs, was a great success with approximately 100 members attending in Halifax. I would like to thank the local organising committee for helping me plan this event. Our panel members generously gave their time and wisdom, without which this workshop would not have been possible:

  • Don Bowen, Ph.D., Research Scientist, Department of Fisheries and Oceans Canada (DFO), Bedford Institute of Oceanography

  • Mélanie Dionne, Ph.D., Research Scientist, Ministère des ressources naturelles et de la faune du Québec (MRNF)

  • Chris Miller, Ph.D., National Manager of Wilderness Conservation and Climate Change for Canadian Parks and Wilderness Society (CPAWS)

  • Darren Sleep, Ph.D., Senior Forest Ecologist, Canadian Operations for the National Council for Air and Stream Improvement (NCASI)

  • Fred Whoriskey, Ph.D., Vice President Research & Environment for the Atlantic Salmon Federation (ASF)
