Upcoming Events

Making Maxwell's Demon Real

This week's Physics Department Colloquium is by Prof. Susanne Still, titled "Making Maxwell's Demon Real". Her talk discusses a "framework [that] provides a basis for studying the thermodynamics of signal processing and inference, tasks at the heart of machine learning and artificial intelligence, adding one step towards a physics based understanding of AI."
Check it out on Zoom this Thursday!

Duke Medical Physics Open House

​The Duke University's Medical Physics Graduate Program would like to announce its annual open house for prospective graduate students. Each year, they host an annual open house event and invite interested individuals to visit their university, tour their labs and interact with their faculty and students. This event provides a great opportunity for prospective applicants to learn about careers in medical physics and about the graduate training program at Duke.

6th Annual 1-Minute Colloquium

On Thursday, October 7, the Physics and Astronomy Department will have a special colloquium. They will have a series of department-wide talks during the regular colloquium time slot (3:30-4:30 pm). Everyone will have exactly one minute (sharp) to introduce themselves and present their research to the entire department. Everyone (students, postdocs, staff, faculty) is encouraged to participate! It is a great way to meet new people in the department and see all the different things they are working on.

NOAA Workshop Series

This semester we will be hosting a workshop series that will highlight some of the opportunities with the National Oceanic Atmospheric Administration (NOAA)! Join us as we discuss the NOAA Hollings/EPP Scholarship and PYSO internship programs. Guest speakers include Dr. Donald Kobayashi, Celeste Hanley from NOAA and UH Manoa students who have participated in these programs.

Johns Hopkins University Graduate Program in Biological Chemistry Info Sessions

Johns Hopkins University will be hosting two Question & Answer Sessions, one September 23, 7:00 AM EST and one October 14, 11:00 AM EST. This is an opportunity for prospective students to meet and chat with our faculty, to learn about the program, the Department, the University, students living at Hopkins, living in Baltimore and to ask questions they have.

Hawaiʻi Rare Plant Genetics Workshop Series

A Hawaiʻi Rare Plant Genetics Workshop Series is beginning this fall! The workshop will kick off on Oct 25th-26th, with presentations about the workshop series and background information about the concepts and molecular work to be evaluated, as well as introductions from many of the participants who will be presenting examples of challenges in the field and lab.  There is no need to register ahead of time. Meetings will be recorded and made available. Send questions to  

UW Pharmacology Open House

The UW Pharmacology department hosts a diverse field of research areas including neurobiology, biochemistry, structural biology and genetics/gene architecture.
