Pod Session Prerequisite: Attend the Interview Preparation and Behavioral Interview Strategies Workshop before this pod session to apply those concepts in a small-group setting.

Description:

Work with a small group of students to practice interview skills and receive feedback to help feel more confident and prepared for the interview process. Students will apply PARL techniques to respond to interview questions like:  

  • “Tell me about yourself.”
  • Individual person and team conflicts
  • Personal struggles and failures
  • Leadership and decision-making.

**NOTE: This session is not a personalized mock interview but will prepare you for the interview process. Students will work together in small groups to practice their interview skills. We also recommend bringing a job or internship description of an opportunity that interests you. If you prefer an individual mock interview, contact the CMC to check availability.**

It is strongly recommended that you review these resources in preparation for the session:

  1. Introduce Yourself in 30 Seconds 
  2. Interview Checklist 
  3. Interviewing Strategies

TALK CANCELLED - Physics Colloquium: Dynamic Materials Inspired By Cephalopods http://www.utdallas.edu/calendar/event.php?id=1220432682?WT.mc_id=CalendarRSS http://www.utdallas.edu/calendar/event.php?id=1220432682?WT.mc_id=CalendarRSS Wednesday, Apr 26
(4 p.m. - 5 p.m.)

THIS TALK HAS BEEN CANCELLED

Dr. Alon Gorodetsky (UC Irvine)

Cephalopods (squid, octopuses, and cuttlefish) have captivated the imagination of both the general public and scientists for more than a century due to their visually stunning camouflage displays, sophisticated nervous systems, and complex behavioral patterns. Given their unique capabilities and characteristics, it is not surprising that these marine invertebrates have recently emerged as exciting sources of inspiration for the development of novel materials. Within this context, our laboratory has explored the properties of structural proteins known as reflectins, which play crucial roles in the functionality of cephalopod skin cells. In this talk, I will discuss our work on photonic and protonic devices fabricated from cephalopod-derived and cephalopod-inspired materials. Our findings hold implications for the development of adaptive camouflage systems, sensitive bioelectronic platforms, and renewable energy technologies.
