Sample of EIP-profile

Name: Michael Smith
Employer: UC Berkeley
PhD Degree and year: Molecular Biology, 2009
PhD Institute: Princeton University

Formerly a graduate student with Michael Hecht and currently a Postdoc at Berkeley, I am well-versed in a variety of subjects and techniques in molecular biology and biochemistry. My main projects have involved generating, characterizing, and screening libraries of proteins for applications in synthetic biology and bioenergy. Among my responsibilities has been managing research subgroups of 3 to 7 members. I have also taken on leadership positions such as the presidency of the Berkeley Postdoctoral Association. I find teaching concepts and techniques to scientific novices very fulfilling. In that vein, I have helped to organize events that share science with the public, such as a symposium to examine how science is portrayed in the media and
entertainment industries, and a showcase to aquaint the local community with biofuels research. I hope to eventually transition to a position that allows me to make high-level scientific concepts accessible and engaging to non-experts
