Amritangshu is a PhD candidate in the Department of Molecular Biosciences at KU. His research focuses on understanding the protein-protein interactions in the Type III Secretion System in Gram-negative bacteria using NMR spectroscopy. Knowing that there are diverse careers outside of academia for PhD graduates,he wants to help SEARCH symposium attendees to learn more about these career tracks and how to leverage the transferable skills required for these transitions. He is a part of the organizing committee for SEARCH 2020 to help bring in professionals from diverse sectors outside academia so that attendees can effectively learn how to apply for jobs in those positions. 


The SEARCH Symposium was partially funded by donations made to KU Student Endowment Board’s crowd-funding campaign, LaunchKU. If you would like to support our graduate student organizations and the 2020 SEARCH Symposium, please consider making a donation. Even the smallest donations make a difference. 


Thank you for supporting graduate students' efforts to promote science education and outreach, professional development events, and travel to professional meetings.
