Meet with top researchers in the field!

Sometimes, a one-on-one conversation can be more useful than all the written resources in the world. PREDOC's Office Hours with a social scientist series allows anyone who is interested in a research career to connect with top researchers to learn more about the career, hear about opportunities, and get advice. Office Hours events are held virtually over Zoom. Here are our upcoming office hours:
