“The Power of Procrastination” – Lecture by Jorge Cham – 14th of March 2013
Place: SVHUM, B-1005
Time: Thursday, March 14, 14:00-16:00
Disenchanted with life in Academia (or lack thereof)? Stuck? In need of inspiration for your research? We have just what you need – a motivational talk from JORGE CHAM.
After the talk, Jorge Cham will sign books. If you don’t have one, you can buy one there.
Jorge Cham is a scientist and a cartoonist, and is best known as the author of Piled Higher and Deeper, or PhD comics (www.phdcomics.com
), a popular webcomic about life in grad school. He has a PhD in Mechanical Engineering from Stanford University, and was a full-time instructor and researcher at the California Institute of Technology (Caltech) from 2003-2005.
BioStruct has invited Jorge to do a “tour of Norway” and give lectures/motivational talks in four Norwegian universities: UiO (11.03.13), UiB (11.03.13), NTNU (13.03.13) and UiT (14.03.13).
The event in Tromsø is organized in collaboration with TODOS (Tromsø Doctoral Students).
We hope to see you there, so we can find out together if procrastination can, actually, be a powerful tool in the service of research.
PS: There will be coffee, tea and cookies! 🙂
