The Committee for Postdocs and Students (COMPASS) represents young scientists within ASCB. We are dedicated to providing a forum for student and postdoc members to identify and address topics that are essential to their success. We strive to uphold the values and advance the goals of ASCB by promoting the active participation of students and postdocs in the scientific community and maximizing their effectiveness.

Our goals are:

  • To create programming and resources that directly address the training and career development needs of graduate students and postdocs.
  • To promote opportunities for science advocacy and outreach that facilitate active engagement between young scientists and society.
  • To increase the visibility of student and postdoc perspectives within the ASCB by authoring content for society publications and the ASCB website.
  • To foster community and connection between young scientist members of ASCB.

At all stages of scientist training, COMPASS is here to help chart your path!
