The Career and Scholarship Center would like to extend an invitation to all CSI faculty and staff to this month’s “Coffee and Careers” session. Join us in conversation with Jonathan Foox of the American Museum of Natural History on Tuesday, Oct. 20 in the Campus Center (Building 1C) Park Café.

This is a fantastic opportunity for those who are interested in science or biology.

Jon completed a five-year BS/MS program at The George Washington University. He is now in the fourth and final year of a comparative Biology PhD program at the Richard Gilder Graduate School at the American Museum of Natural History. Jon is researching the genomic evolution of Myxozoa, a group of microscopic endoparasites that are, strangely enough, highly degenerate cnidarians, closely related to Medusozoa (jellyfish, hydroids, and their allies). Jon’s specialties include next-generation sequencing, data pipelining, and scripting in Python and R.

Pre-registration is requested. Please contact the Career and Scholarship Center at 718.982.2300 or
