Beyond the Lab: Dynamic Careers in Science and Sustainability

In collaboration with Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory at Columbia University, The Explorers Club is hosting its second annual “Beyond the Lab: Dynamic Careers in Science and Sustainability,” a career day on October 1st, 2016 from 10:00am-1:00pm. The event will give high school and undergraduate students the unique opportunity to learn about exciting careers in science and sustainability and to explore cutting-edge scientific research.

Eight fantastic speakers will discuss their careers and the unusual paths that got them there, including TEC Fellows Brian Boom and Gaelin Rosenwaks, this year's Keynote. Students will hear from scientists, graduate students and alumni and those working in the field of sustainable development in the public and private sectors. Lamont scientists will also present exciting footage showcasing their latest research findings from the field. We look forward to seeing you there!

About the Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory
Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory seeks fundamental knowledge about the origin, evolution and future of the natural world. Its scientists study the planet from its deepest interior to the outer reaches of its atmosphere, on every continent and in every ocean, providing a rational basis for the difficult choices facing humanity. Lamont is a core component of the Earth Institute, Columbia University. About 200 Ph.D. level researchers work and teach there, and 80-90 graduate students are involved in research. Since its founding in 1949, Lamont-Doherty has been a leader in the earth sciences. Its scientists were the first to map the seafloor and develop a computer model that could predict an El Nino weather event, the first to provide concrete proof for the theory of plate tectonics and to reveal the oceans’ role in triggering abrupt climate change.
